David Byrne Quotes
“Ninety percent of all music is always crap, and when too many people decide they're going to have guitar bands, then ninety percent of them are going to be crap. It's just a given law.”
David Byrne Quotes
“Occasionally, I hanker for the time when I sold more records, but I don't sit and drool about it. When I do look at early footage of Talking Heads, I realise I was just a wreck.”
“So there's no guarantee if you like the music you will empathize with the culture and the people who made it. It doesn't necessarily happen. I think it can, but it doesn't necessarily happen. Which is kind of a shame.”
David Byrne Quotes

David Byrne Quotes
“I use a stream-of-consciousness approach; if you don't censor yourself, you end up with what you're most concerned about, but you haven't filtered it through your conscious mind. Then you craft it.”
“I've been asking myself: 'Why put together these things - CDs, albums?' The answer I came up with is, well, sometimes it's artistically viable. It's not just a random collection of songs. Sometimes the songs have a common thread, even if it's not obvious or even conscious on the artists' part.”
David Byrne Quotes
“People are already finding ways to make their music and play it in front of people and have a life in music, I guess, and I think that's pretty much all you can ask.”
David Byrne Quotes
“You go to a festival, you know you're not going to play all new material at a festival. The audience is not there for that. I've made that mistake, but you find out pretty quickly.”
David Byrne Quotes
“I love getting out of my comfort zone.”
David Byrne Quotes
“Artists are notoriously snooty and suspicious of anything coming from the business community.”
