I Can’t Seem To Face Up To The Facts That There Probably Won’t Be A Talking Heads Reunion
A Talking Heads reunion has been a dream of a lot of people sense the band broke up in December 1991. Briefly reunited in 2002 for a short set at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction the haven’t played together since.
Speaking to The Creative Independent, about the possibility of a Talking Heads Reunion, David Byrne said: ““[A] Talking Heads reunion might be incredibly successful for a specific generation, or maybe for many generations. It would make me a lot of money and get a lot of attention. It would also probably be quite a number of steps backwards as far as being perceived as someone who does a lot of different things. For that reason, I feel like I have to sacrifice something, whether it’s money or name recognition or whatever, in order to be able to do a little bit more of what I’d want to do. In other words, you can’t have it all.”
The tl;dr version: Don’t hold your breath.
At least we have this video of Talking Heads live at CBGB’s, New York City from January 15, 1977.
