It's been a long time coming, some would say, but Talking Heads are amongst a number of bands and artists who are to be specially commended at the next Grammy Awards.

David Byrne and his bandmates, who last reunited at their induction into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, will be awarded a Lifetime Achievement award at the 2021 ceremony.

Other artists who will be also receiving Lifetime Achievement Grammys are Salt-N-Pepa, Selena, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, late jazz musician Lionel Hampton and opera singer Marilyn Horne.

Fans who may be hoping for another Talking Heads reunion may be disappointed, however; just a few weeks ago, Byrne quashed the notion, saying "There’s plenty of reunion tours and things like that and it’s become an exercise in nostalgia. You can never recreate that moment when people hear things like that for the first time.

"It has to do with the moment that they heard this music in their life, where they were in their life, when this happened – more than it was us."

None of the band have commented on the Grammy Award as yet. The ceremony is on January 31st at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
