Just a couple of highlights from this week in music history!

Tina Weymouth

NOV 22:  Happy birthday to Tina Weymouth, born today in 1950! The American musician and songwriter is best known as the bassist and co-founder of the new wave band Talking Heads. Weymouth formed Talking Heads in 1975 with her husband Chris Frantz, and David Byrne.

Weymouth's distinctive bass lines played a significant role in shaping Talking Heads' sound, contributing to the band's success and critical acclaim. Some of their well-known albums include "Talking Heads: 77," "Fear of Music," and "Remain in Light."
In addition to her work with Talking Heads, Tina Weymouth has been involved in various musical projects, including Tom Tom Club, a band she formed with Frantz. Tom Tom Club achieved success with songs like "Genius of Love."
Tina Weymouth is recognized not only for her contributions to music but also for her influence as a female bassist in a predominantly male-dominated industry. She remains an influential figure in the world of alternative and new wave music.

In addition to his work with April Wine, he released solo material. His solo career includes albums like "Myles Goodwin" (1988) and "Myles Goodwin and Friends of the Blues" (2018).
