'No Talking Heads reunion' says David Byrne
David Byrne has issued a firm response to widespread internet rumours about reforming Talking Heads. The band, who split in 1991, have only played together once since then, taking to the stage in 2002 to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Speaking to Metro and other media, Byrne said he has little desire to reunite the band properly: "We did have a lot of bad blood go down. That's one reason, and another is that musically we're just miles apart. I'm also not keen and it's unlikely to happen (...) I don't need the money badly enough." Add to this that Tina Weymouth has been critical of David Byrne in the past, describing him as "a man incapable of returning friendship" and that he doesn't "love" Frantz, Harrison and herself.

Talking Heads was an American rock band formed in 1974 in New York City[1] and active until 1991. The band comprised David Byrne, Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and Jerry Harrison. Auxiliary musicians also frequently made appearances in concert and on the group's albums.
