What happens to former artists and players in the Nashville area? They all get together later to perform. Bill Lloyd used to be in the country duo Foster and Lloyd with Radney Foster. When I knew him he made it no secret that he loved the Beatles. That sparked an idea.

Honor the Beatles and play songs he enjoyed and get well known and veteran singers to help perform a Beatles record. Then it blossomed to performing classic albums.

Members of THE LONG PLAYERS include; Bill Lloyd (Foster & Lloyd/The Sky Kings) • Guitar Steve Allen (20/20) • Guitar Steve Ebe (Human Radio) • Drums Brad Jones (record producer: Josh Rouse/Jill Sobule/Steve Forbert/ Chuck Prophet/etc..) • Bass Joined by a rotating roster of stellar vocalists and musicians.

Together they have covered The Police, Prince, The Rolling Stones, U2, and many more.

They have a facebook page and a you tube page and a website. Here's an example of their work.
