Chris Frántz tells Bob Dylan to “suck a dick” after Talking Heads criticism

Bob Dylan has yet to respond to the lewd comment.

Chris Frántz of The Talking Heads has told Bob Dylan to “suck a dick” after the musician made a supposed snub comment towards the band.

Frántz took to Twitter to express his admiration for Bob Dylan’s new book, The Philosophy of Modern Song, but notes that he has “one little bone to pick with the author” when he wrote that “Elvis Costello and the Attractions were a better band than any of their contemporaries. Light years better.

“I’d like to say to Bob something he once said to a buddy of mine. ‘Suck a dick.’”

The snub, which is supposedly directed at The Talking Heads, refers to the song Pump It Up which was released in 1978, a year after The Talking Heads released Psycho Killer.

Rolling Stone however, claims that Dylan could still be a Talking Heads fan, referring to his attendance at their gig in St. Paul, Minnesota, in the Eighties, before the band was invited to his house afterward for a party.
