Remain in Love


While David Byrne may be a better-known name, it was drummer Chris Frantz who convinced fellow RISD classmates Byrne and Tina Weymouth to move to NYC and start Talking Heads. In Frantz’s Remain in Love: Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club, Tina, he tells his version of Talking Heads tales—including the epic 1977 tour with the Ramones and how Byrne “sneaked out of Talking Heads” in the early ’90s—as well as stories surrounding Tom Tom Club, the spin-off band he founded with Weymouth. While never diving too deep into nuance, the book paints an intriguing picture filled with unheard anecdotes and plenty of art-school charm.
