Richard Lloyd 

While Television's Tom Verlaine played guitar as if he were pecking on a typewriter without regard for typos, fellow axeman Richard Lloyd always had his fingers on the home keys. Outside of his role with the legendary punk band, Lloyd released a handful of solo records, played sideman on a couple Matthew Sweet albums, toured with the reformed Rocket From the Tombs and became a guitar instructor. The punk rock elder statesmen recently resurrected his solo career, continuing to prove that he's quite possibly the most technically skilled player to have come out of the CBGB scene.
