David Byrne was in Uriah Heep. I wasn't aware he released solo stuff.

David Byrne was in Talking Heads, you are thinking of David Byron.

Thanks Brian. But I was wrong anyways. Turns out David Byron did have solo albums

He's in with the Talking Heads and I don't really see a reason to put him in for his solo material.

Saw him with St. Vincent at Bonnaroo. Now I'm an Anti-Byrneite (side with rest of Talking Heads in their feud), but I must admit they put on an entertaining show. Had a big backing band with a good brass section. David played acoustic guitar or just sang. St. Vincent played lead guitar (excellent guitarist she is).

He did play 4 Talking Heads songs, but as is the case with David, he only played one of the greats 'Burning Down the House'. The other 3 were lesser known tracks.

Paul in KY - Have you heard David Byrne & St. Vincent's album? I really enjoy it. And yes, she's an excellent guitarist. I'm a big fan of hers.

Darin, I heard several songs during their set. Enjoyed them. Got St. Vincent's 1st album & it wasn't my cup of tea. Will have to probably get this album by her & David.

Wish you had got to see them.

Security Question:

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
