Chris Frantz is an American musician and record producer. He was the drummer for both Talking Heads and the Tom Tom Club. The Talking Heads mid-80s output — in particular the album/ lm combination projects Stop Making Sense (1984) and True Sto- ries (1986) — secured their position as one of the most popular acts of the decade. What was initially presented as a temporary break after the release of the album Naked in 1988 had become the permanent dissolution of the band by 1991; by this time Frantz and Weymouth had resumed work as Tom Tom Club, having already issued Boom Boom Chi Boom Boom (1988) and Dark Sneak Love Action (1991). As the 90s progressed, the two extended their activities to include production work for perform- ers that ranged from Shirley Manson to Ziggy Marley.
In 2000, Tom Tom Club returned to action with The Good, the Bad, and the Funky. The band continues to record new records and tour both domestically and internationally.
