"[Remain in Love] has great storytelling and amazing detail about adventures that Chris and I have shared in our parallel universes. As the Brits say: I'm gobsmacked. I devoured this book and all the memories and all the love Chris has for Tina . . . . One of the most potent examples of living the dream." --Debbie Harry

From the first time I saw Talking Heads live (CBGB, 1976), I've had a huge thing for Tina Weymouth. And since then I've been biding my time, waiting for the right moment to make my move. But after reading Remain in Love by Chris Frantz, it's become pretty clear to me that she's already in a relationship (see pages xi, 3, 33-34, etc.), and what's more, it looks to be serious (pages 41, 43-48, and especially 147). But you know something? That's OK. I'm happy for Tina, and for Chris, a great drummer who has written a great book. --Bill Murray

A music memoir that is as much about love as music. [Remain in Love] is a gold mine for fans of the 1970s and '80s music scene. --Kirkus Reviews

"Electrifying. Remain in Love is possibly the most uxorious rock 'n' roll memoir ever written..." --Wall Street Journal

Fun, cheerful, and eventful, this memoir has just the right amount of edge. --Publishers Weekly

"This swift-paced, well-written book has the upbeat tone of dreams coming true. Frantz conveys the excitement of his adventures from boyhood to art school to international rock-stardom with honesty and enthusiasm . . . . I dare any drummer to write a better book!" --Duncan Hannah, author of Twentieth Century Boy

While [Remain in Love] does offer a vivid backstage glimpse of New York's downtown scene in the '70s and beyond, what sweetens the read is that even after all these years, the torch Frantz carries for his spouse could still burn down the house. --O, The Oprah Magazine

"Frantz's absorbing, vivid book will reward Talking Heads fans and those interested in the postpunk and 1980s mu-sic scene." --Library Journal

"Heads and drums and funk and roll: herewith Chris Frantz outs himself as a Writing Head and Raconteur First Class, bringing it on an engaging narrative which combines an enchanting love story with an eye-opening disquisition on the upsides and downsides of being in bands with unusual people."
--Charles Shaar Murray, author of Crosstown Traffic: Jimi Hendrix and Post-War Pop

"Crackling with verve, comedy, calamity, crisp detail, forward motion, and abiding affection, speckled with an all-star cast of punk legends and pop idols, Chris Frantz's Remain in Loveis a rock music memoir like none other--a candy kiss with a kick to it." --James Wolcott, author of Lucking Out
