The inside story of Talking Heads by their drummer and co-founder. At its core is Frantz's romance with bassist Tina Weymouth, with whom he not only formed a life but a second band, Tom Tom Club.

One of the most iconic bands of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Talking Heads distinguished themselves from the ultra-cool Rolling Stones, the chaotic Sex Pistols, and glam rockers like David Bowie. They burst onto the scene when Frantz’s girlfriend Tina Weymouth taught herself to play bass and joined him and lead singer David Byrne, playing at CBGBs and touring Europe with the Ramones. Their hits from “Psycho Killer” to “Burning Down the House” to “Wild, Wild Life” captured the post-baby boom generation’s intense, affectless style. Their Jonathan Demme-directed concert film Stop Making Sense remains a classic. Frantz’s and Weymouth’s creativity surged with Tom Tom Club, bringing an Afro-Caribbean beat to their fresh hits like “Genius of Love.”

Remain in Love is studded with memorable names from the era: Grace Jones, Andy Warhol, Stephen Sprouse, Lou Reed, John Cale, Richard Hell, Twyla Tharp, Brian Eno, Debbie Harry, and many more. Beautifully written with immersive vivid detail, the book moves from the rooms where the songs were made—including Providence, RI and the Chrystie Street loft Frantz, Weymouth, and Byrne shared—to the meals eaten and the clothes worn, right to the dynamics of a long and complicated working relationship with a mercurial frontman.

With the sense of place and time that characterized Patti Smith’s book Just Kids, Remain in Love is as frank and open as autobiographies from rockers Neil Young and Keith Richards.
