1. I was born in Scotland in 1952, but if you heard my voice you would never guess that.
2. I was young when we moved to Canada, and then later to Maryland.
3. In my youth I loved music and learned to play several instruments.

Thank you, Arthur. Just to let you know, the record I referred to earlier, that my Mom used to play, was actually Billy Vaughn- Sail Along Silvery Moon. Smile

4. I wanted to be in my middle school choir, but I was shunned for being off key and to strange for the other kids to handle.

5. My dad was an electrical engineer. When I was young he tricked out a reel-to-reel tape recorder so I could make multi-track musical recordings.

6. I was attending the Rhode Island School of Design when I met the fellow I would team up with for many years in our career.

7. Although I am somewhat of a renaissance man, music is what I am best known for.

8. When we couldn't find an appropriate bass player for the band, I taught my bandmate's girlfriend to play. She made it her own and developed her extremely unique and intense style.

Ah, that's got to be David Byrne, leader of the Talking Heads.

Very good Arthur, David Byrne it is.

9. Some people have suggest that my band was a founder, or at least a leader in minimalist punk music.
10. I believe I have Asperger's syndrome (a form of Autism) though I have never been officially tested or diagnosed.
11. I believe that my Asperger's helps me in my work by keeping me focused.
12. Later my band broke up, though we reunited for one performance when we were inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of Fame.
13. Something happened between us that makes people believe we will never again work together.
14. The girl I taught to play the bass was once quoted as saying I am the kind of man who can't form a friendship with anyone.
15. I had a solo career after losing my band, but I never had the kind of success I had previously enjoyed.

Thanks, Cliff. I wouldn’t call the Talking Heads a "punk" band; rather, their style was more "new wave."

I was born in 1940 to parents who enjoyed singing, ballroom dancing, and listening to swing music.

However, my parents’ regular outings ended soon after my birth, when my mother adopted an overprotective approach to raising her son that bordered on fixation.

Subsequently, my father lost interest in his family, and my parents soon divorced, forcing my mother to take on several menial jobs.

I was afflicted by life-threatening illnesses during childhood, with periods of prolonged hospitalization. Consequently, at age eight, I remained illiterate.

After several years tutoring, I was catching up academically when, in 1953, I contracted tuberculosis and was admitted to a sanatorium for two years.

During my stay, the medical staff encouraged their patients to join the hospital band. This stimulated my interest in wanting to play a musical instrument.

When my mother remarried, her new husband introduced me to big band music and jazz vocalists. After recovering from TB, I did not return to school, preferring instead to stay at home and listen to music.

I briefly worked for the railways, then served drinks on a boat, before becoming an apprentice machinist at an equipment manufacturer. Soon afterwards, I became interested in the skiffle craze, and started playing music with friends.

In 1957, I co-founded my own skiffle band, which earned several prestigious local bookings before the fad succumbed to rock and roll.

Not John.

I also enjoyed dancing as my parents had years earlier, and after taking dance lessons, I danced competently while enjoying nights out on the town.

By 1960, the rock band I was playing with was doing well enough for me to turn professional. That same year, I performed a few stand-in gigs with a band destined to become famous in the future.
