Some of my most enjoyable interviews have happened when I don’t ask too many questions. The subject has so much to say, it just pours out and I have to time the pauses like an American Ninja Warrior leaping across an obstacle course to ask a question. It was such with guitarist Richard Lloyd, best known for his pioneering work with the band Television and as an occasional sideman for Matthew Sweet. This interview from November 2008 was a wonderful learning experience. I admitted right off that I was new to Television and playing catch up, and Lloyd was delighted to hear it. We started off talking a bit about his days in Boston, and quickly moved to addiction, moderation, and then eventually, some great stuff on the beginnings of Television, how they were almost managed by Sex Pistols empresario Malcolm McClaren, and how Colonel Tom Park used to get sideshow chickens to dance. This is about twenty minutes of a conversation that spanned an hour and a half. Post in the comments if you’re interested in hearing the rest.
