Speaking of Books & Music

I came across this paragraph in David Browne's biography of Sonic Youth, Goodbye 2oth Century:
"With their twitchy sound and bass lines, the Heads weren't anyone's idea of a punk band, and the prim preppiness of singer and guitarist David Byrne didn't look ravaged either; [Sonic Youth guitarist Lee] Renaldo in particular was struck by the fact Byrne wore a wristwatch. "Rock and rollers didn't wear watches," he recalls. "You were there to play all night. You didn't want to know what time it was." But maybe the normal rules no longer applied."
