Aaaaaand there go my opinions, dear god I hope I’m not offending anyone.

Answer
  • Question: Oh yeah, CBGB! Wish I could have been there! The New York punk scene of the 70s is still important to the UK now. We appreciate it so much. It's an interesting interview, but I really don't like Tina's attitude regarding David and the possibility of Asperger's. Her tone always seems extremely nasty. And what's all this about David being "pudgy" when he worked at the cinema in '74, like what ???? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Hm, and here I was thinking about how the UK influenced the US so much… and I never thought the effect we had on them. Or you guys. (I’m assuming you’re from the UK…)

    I’m glad you brought that up, because I was too scared of seeming defensive if I commented on it. I like Tina and Chris, but they don’t really have business making such an assumption. (Never mind that David Byrne has made his self-diagnosis public, because I think it’s foolish to diagnose oneself with a certain neurosis and I won’t believe him unless he makes it public that he was professionally diagnosed.) I’m annoyed at how often Tina harps on his flaws, but I can certainly see them- I wouldn’t want to be told how to dress and style my hair. But yeah, she still comes across as needlessly rude. She’s cool though, when she’s not taking shots at people (never mind if they deserved it, the past can stay in the past, eh?).

  • Question: Did you ever read the interview with Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth with Vulture magazine from March 2014? It won't allow me to include a link to it. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    Yeah, I did read it. I like their stories about CBGB- it sounds like a hellish but happening place. That was probably what their whole experience in New York was like, now that I’m thinking about. It’s interesting to think that “bands from New York” was a big thing in England!

You can be quiet and reserved and still be witty and even outgoing in certain circles.
