Superb guitar work on Born Under Punches Live with Talking Heads and Adrien Belew

I’ve always loved this song, but I hadn’t seen ths live version before. It has superb guitar playing from many of the players on stage, but Adrien Belew (from King Crimson) does some amazing things with feedback at the beginning. Well worth a look and a listen.

  1. As you know, I am a big King Crimson fan, so I naturally love the collaborations of Byrne & Belew!
    I hadn’t seen this version, either, and
    was surprised to see 2 Bass players!
    Tina Weymouth & ??? I wonder how SHE felt about that?
    Overall, I think their stuff “holds up” really well, some 30 yrs later!
    Have you seen this one yet?

  2. Girls Flying Solo

    I dig… on many levels. Adding to the beach vacation playlist!
