David Byrne: Pop Musicians Can’t Just Stand There And Sing. There Has To Be More Of A Show

The live shows don’t have to be a musical, but something more going on than someone standing up there singing. A lot of them are not inclined to that and it’s going to be hard for them. I got to hear a fair amount of music and there are so many who turn their back on the audience and the stage lights are dim, maybe some colored lights are playing, and you go, “I’ll just go home and listen to the record.”
