The internet was a buzz yesterday with rumors Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame act Talking Heads would be reuniting for a new album and tour. As much as many music fans would love to see the group get back together, two members of the group shot down the rumors to Blast Echo.
GigWise lit the flames yesterday with a post about Talking Heads reuniting for the first time since the group disbanded in 1991. The outlet gave its sources as a March Facebook post from an Orlando radio station and an article from satire site MediaMass.
Blast Echo reached Talking Heads guitarist Jerry Harrison via email who responded, “the rumor is false.” Drummer Chris Frantz sent a text message to the site adding, “I wish it were true. It should be happening but [frontman] David [Byrne] is holding out.” At least we still have the memories and video of past Talking Heads’ performances such as this pro-shot clip from 1980’s Remain In Light Tour:
