Book Summary

David Byrne, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and co-founder of Talking Heads, presents a celebration of music as he knows it. He draws on his own experiences to explore everything from Balinese performance techniques to the acoustics of CBGB, deal structures and Celia Cruz — and, of course, the band that first made him famous.
