Govt Mule, Bill Lloyd Nod to the Beatles, Stones
Govt Mules summer tour continued night with a full two-set show at Green, KYs Capitol Arts Center Bowling. At the start of the groups encore, Nashville musician Bill Lloyd took the stage with the quartet for a cover of the Beatles Hide Your Love Away. Lloyd then helped Govt Mule through a first time cover of the Rolling Stones The Last Time that included a jam based around (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. Govt Mule keyboardist Danny Louis recently performed with Lloyd and Cheap Trick at the Hollywood Bowl at a tribute to Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Chicagos Navy Pier will host Govt Mule this evening.
Lloyd, whose credits include Foster and Lloyd and The Sky Kings, was an early proponent of the power pop sub-genre.
