David Byrne. Not even close.
Although, I do prefer Genesis with Peter Gabriel as lead singer to Genesis with Phil Collins in that role.
Talking Heads kick ass!

David Byrne for sure, especially his stuff with Brian Eno.

I agree with both of you. I love Gabriel but he reminds me of high school, whereas Byrne reminds me of that strange, glorious space I lived between moving out and getting my life together.

and yes…Gabriel’s Genesis was on a whole other level than Collins’, and adding Eno into anyone’s mix and it’s bound to be killer. I was just listening to Here Come the Warm Jets yesterday after a long hiatus. It sounded so good.

David Byrne, poster boy for my young adulthood. Sigh. I have a 1983 poster of him that went from gracing the wall of my office at the first ad agency I worked at, to the wall in our TV room.

Peter Gabriel is still doing some cutting edge research with music and computers.
