  • Creative Differences: This is part of the reason the band never reformed, the other part is that the other band members have personal issues with David Byrne.
  • Creator Couple: Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz.
  • Name's the Same: The "Gene Wilder" credited with playing congas on "I Zimbra" is not the actor.
  • What Could Have Been: The band considered supporting True Stories with a tour of drive-in theaters.
