David Byrne on media

“Some are better for saying a particular thing than others. I think it’s also part of that punk do-it-yourself
attitude, of being like: ‘Well, I don’t care that I’m not an expert in
this. I know my limitations, but I think I can express what I want to
express within those limitations.’ You know — like I may only know
three chords, but that’s all I need.”

Will Hermes, New York Times, "Indie Rock's Patron Saint Inspires a New Flock"

    They’re right! I’ve been to many a show, turned around, and hey, there’s David Byrne. Again. The man is wonderfully unpretentious.
