Talking Heads - Chris Frantz Refuses To Give Up On Talking Heads Reunion Dream
Former Talking Heads star Chris Frantz refuses to give up on a reunion and hopes frontman David Byrne "wakes up" to the idea one day.
The drummer tells Billboard.com that he, his wife and bandmate Tina Weymouth and Jerry Harrison would be interested in a comeback - but reveals Psycho Killer singer Byrne has always been resistant to plans.
Frantz is hoping that the release of a new Dvd retrospective of early performances, titled Talking Heads Chronology, will prompt the frontman to reconsider.
He says, "(The Dvd) makes me think, like, 'Whose idea was it to stop this band anyway?'
"Shortly after the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (induction ceremony reunion) thing (in 2002), I said, 'This is so much fun, why don't we continue with this a little bit?' I was kind of met with, shall we say, a lot of resistance, and sometimes it's best to leave well enough alone.
"We all hope David will one day wake up and say, 'Boy, I should call Chris and Tina and Jerry...' That's the only way anything will happen."
