Released on Aug. 3, 1979, the Talking Heads' Fear of Music found David Byrne's always-offbeat observations set to turbulent, often strikingly ominous music beds that grew out of loose, but ultimately uncredited full-band jams.

This October will see the premiere of 'CBGB," a movie about the legendary Manhattan club that witnessed the birth of punk. Yesterday (Aug. 2), the contents of the soundtrack were released, and it contains some of that scene's most familiar names.
Sammy Hagar joined Grateful Dead singer-guitarist Bob Weir at Weir's TRI Studios in San Rafael, California for a jam session that also included Talking Heads keyboardist and guitarist Jerry Harrison and Lukas Nelson, the son of Willie Nelson.
