Talking Heads drummer Chris Frantz will publish his memoir, titled Remain In Love - Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club, Tina on May 12th via the St. Martin's Press imprint. Jambase.com reported the autobiography, will chronicle Frantz's years in the Heads and Tom Tom Club with his wife, bassist Tina Weymouth.

According to the press release for the book:

One of the most iconic bands of the 1970's and ‘'80s, Talking Heads. . . (with their hits) 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, 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, Rhode Island 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.

Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth recently told us that few things in his life compared to the very first time he heard a Talking Heads song blasting out of the radio: "(Chris): "I remember the first time we ever heard one of our songs on the radio, it was so exciting. It was 'Psycho Killer' (laughs). (Tina): It was. . We were driving up on our way to Boston. . . (Chris): . . . we had to pull off the side of the road and listen to it. (Tina): It was so exciting we just, you couldn't even sit down. Y'know, we had to stop the car, pull off the side of the road, and get out of the car."
