David Byrne Dispels Talking Heads Reunion Rumors



The rumor mills have been spinning with talk of a possible Talking Heads reunion, but it looks like David Byrne has dispelled these hopeful thoughts. Sorry Talking Heads fans, but it looks like you'll be more likely to see Byrne twirling around in a tutu on stage these days, than seeing him team up with his former band anytime soon. 

In response to an interview with Metro, Byrne said "I'm not keen and it's unlikely to happen. I don't need the money badly enough." Talking Heads haven't been on stage together since 2002 when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. 

The band split up in 1991, and Byrne has been busy with numerous side projects since, including his record label Luaka Bop and most recently, his collaboration with New York dance trio Brazilian Girls on "Losing Myself" -- Byrne's third hip-hop/dance collab of 2009 according to Rolling Stone.

Byrne will be taking the stage in June as one of the headliners for this year's Bonnaroo music festival, so if you need your Talking Heads fix, don't worry. Byrne will most likely be taking your mind on a classically conceptual "Head trip" -- adorned with tutus and props galore.
