"Two iconic bands. An unforgettable life. One of the most dynamic groups of the '70s and '80s, Talking Heads, founded by drummer Chris Frantz, his girlfriend Tina Weymouth, and lead singer David Byrne, burst onto the music scene, playing at CBGBs, touring Europe with the Ramones, and creating hits like "Psycho Killer" and "Burning Down the House" that captured the post-baby boom generation's intense, affectless style. In Remain in Love, Frantz writes about the beginnings of Talking Heads-their days as art students in Providence, moving to the sparse Chrystie Street loft Frantz, Weymouth, and Byrne shared where the music that defined an era was written. With never-before-seen photos and immersive vivid detail, Frantz describes life on tour, down to the meals eaten and the clothes worn-and reveals the mechanics of a long and complicated working relationship with a mercurial frontman. At the heart of Remain in Love is Frantz's love for Weymouth: their once-in-a-lifetime connection as lovers, musicians, and bandmates, and how their creativity surged with the creation of their own band Tom Tom Club, bringing a fresh Afro-Caribbean beat to hits like "Genius of Love." Studded with memorable place and names from the era-Grace Jones, Andy Warhol, Stephen Sprouse, Lou Reed, Brian Eno, and Debbie Harry among them-Remain in Love is a frank and open memoir of an emblematic life in music and in love.

Some interesting stories but suffers from poor editing in so many ways resulting in cringy and frustrating passages throughout the book. Really a 3.5 but rated a little higher because of my personal interest in many of the musicians discussed. ( )

I did not like the book because it lacked details. I got the audiobook. I wrote a review of on my blog which you can read here https://macymakesmagic.com/2021/01/06/remain-in-love-book-review/ ( )

Remain in Love is Chris Frantz’s memoir of his time as the drummer of Talking Heads and one half of the driving force behind Tom Tom Club. It is also a memoir of his 42-year marriage (and the dating years before that) with Tina Weymouth, the sublimely inventive bassist of Talking Heads and the other half of Tom Tom Club. This book talks about the joys of putting together a good groove, the challenges of life on the road, and naturally the conflicts with David Byrne and the perma-hiatus that Talking Heads has ended up on.

Reviews of this memoir suggest that Frantz is bitter about Byrne’s treatment of the rest of the Talking Heads. It is true that there was plenty of love lost: among other things, Byrne would leave the others behind on tour without letting them know and would take sole credit for co-written songs such as the classic “Psycho Killer” (the story behind how this song got put together is really interesting). Byrne also seemed unable to be happy for the successes of others in the band (e.g., Tom Tom Club going gold). However, the overriding tone of the book is by no means as bitter as the reviews suggest. Frantz focuses on the good times, of which there were many, and the sheer delight of performing music with a bunch of cool people who are on the same musical page. And this includes Byrne—Frantz does not hesitate to mention Byrne’s inventiveness and talent.

The book is written in a conversational style and contains lots of anecdotes about the music scene (especially about touring Europe with the Ramones, among other bands) and about Frantz’s and Weymouth’s families. Throughout the book are black-and-white pictures that span childhood, musical career, and parenthood. I would definitely recommend this to fans of Talking Heads, and would suggest that it be read with any of their albums in the background. I chose their live album, The Name of This Band is Talking Heads. ( )
