LEAVENWORTH — A year after she was hired, Leslie Lloyd has resigned as executive director of Icicle Creek Center for the Arts. Tom Bassett, president of Icicle Creek’s board of directors, confirmed that Lloyd left voluntarily last week. “Most of it was pretty personal,” he said. He declined to give any details until he talks with the board Monday. Lloyd would also not give details about her departure and referred questions to Bassett.
Nearly 50 years ago, the band Chicago set out to live outside of rock ‘n’ roll’s four-sided box — guitar, bass, drums and vocals. Horns took the lead, melding rock with jazz, classical and soul with hits like, “Questions 67 and 68” and “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” Even for a band considered revolutionary by some, Chicago has put up a surprising number of “firsts” in the last two months.
