Talking Heads frontman David Byrne has dashed hopes for a future reunion.
In an interview on MSNBC‘s “The Beat,” Byrne was asked about the chances of the New York rock band getting back on stage.
“There’s a period where music really is essential to you kind of defining who you are and what your place is in the world, and you can never let go of that moment. But then again, you could never could never recreate and replace that moment either,” Byrne told host Ari Melber.
“There’s plenty of reunion tours and things like that and it’s become an exercise in nostalgia,” the British-American singer-songwriter added. “You can never recreate that moment when people hear things like that for the first time.”
Talking Heads, formed in 1975 in New York City, split up in 1991. The “Burning Down The House” hitmakers reunited a decade later to perform at their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Talking Heads drummer Chris Frantz had said in July that it “would be nice” for the former bandmates to reunite.
