Greetings from France, Bob. I remember Larry Butler well. We visited many a radio station and record store together promoting Talking Heads. He’s a good guy and I look forward to reading his book. Let me just say one thing about Tom Verlaine, though. I don’t think Tom ever recommended any band to play CBGBs and certainly not Talking Heads. I was the one who approached Hilly on our band’s behalf. As far as I know, Tom Verlaine has never done a single favor for anyone…not even himself.
