I happen to share a name with pop music icon, David Byrne. Due to this simple twist of fate, I must endure comments like, “I love your band, man” and “Left your big suit at home today, huh?” every time I meet someone new. I usually say something like “This really isn’t my beautiful house” in return.
Now, the namebrand confusion may worsen, as the RISD grad has launched his own web site and internet radio station–areas I’ve long been active in.
For the record, he spells it “Byrne”. I spell it “Burn”. His spelling is English. Mine is Scotch.
