I've seen enough, heard enough and played enough Television to know that
Lloyd's playing was crucial to Television's live shows, and to Verlaine's
own development as a soloist.
Together Verlaine AND Lloyd developed that angular style of modal soloing
that is hard to define in words but is so distinctive as Television.
I'd say the two of them have distinct styles. Generalizing-and fully aware
that half this list will point out specific examples where the
generalization is wrong- it seems that Verlaine is more lyrical and Lloyd is
more riff-based while soloing. From watching various videos of them playing
live, it seems that Lloyd plays in positions more often and Verlaine moves
along the neck more. Maybe there's a connection with the fact that Lloyd's
first instrument was the drums and Verlaine started on saxophone.
