Any R.E.M. fans who are Talking Heads fans as well? : LUSENET : R.E.M. : One Thread

Are there any R.E.M. fans who are also big Talking Heads fans? They are my two favorite and I think it would be cool if there was someone besides my friend and I who felt the same way.

Yup,sure am,was a talking Heads fan before i discovered the ecstasys of the music of REM and find parallels between the two types of music, some are quite similar.Also David Byrne and Michaeln Stipe are quite similar ,though i'm sure there will be disagreements here,and like you they are my two fave bands though REM just take the lead!!!!!!!!!!

Can I just post a quick message back to Finger, who is, unfortunatly my mother as you probs all already know, the correct spelling is Micheal Stipe, not michealn stipe, as you carelessly spelt wrong, and you call yourself and REM fan, tisk tisk!!

the Talking heads are awesome, too. And Radiohead and Belle and Sebastian and Bob Dylan...

I also love Talking Heads. I was raised by a family who always listen to Talking Heads while driving, so I4ve been brain-washed I think, but I really do love them. I saw David Byrne at Roskilde 497, and he was really great in his pink dress.
