Tom Verlaine

Tom Verlaine was the guitarist for Television, the first non-country, blues or bluegrass band to play at the noted New York club, CBGB. This opened the venue for new wave acts such as Blondie, and Talking Heads and the entire NYC new wave and punk music scene.

Guitarists Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd's guitar playing and lyrical content were highly influential and widely praised in the music media. Television's Marquee Moon is often recommended for anybody who is interested in the serious study of guitar, as is the live album, The Blow Up.
