It’s funny what memories you remember and which ones you’ve forgotten. I saw so many great bands in the past, and I don’t remember the performances for the most part. I know I was at those shows but I don’t remember what happened.
What I do remember about the Talking Heads concert was sitting in the dressing room backstage, while both bands (Talking Heads & The Necessaries) were waiting to go on stage. I was the youngest person there and the only one who didn’t know anyone, (besides Randy), since I was from Boston, and they all lived in New York.
I remember Randy introducing me to the members of the Talking Heads. I remember sitting across from David Byrne and being unnerved by how intensely he stared at me. He didn’t talk at all. He just stared. I also remember talking for awhile to Tina Weymouth, the bass player for the Talking Heads, because I remember her as being the only kind woman I ever met from New York.
Enjoy another brilliant Talking Heads Friday Dance Off song.
