David Byrne has said that Talking Heads split in 1991 for "creative reasons" and suggested that a reunion tour has always been unlikely.

After the group parted ways, Tina Weymouth, Chris Frantz and Jerry Harrison released the album No Talking, Just Head as The Heads in 1996, prompting Byrne to take legal action against them.

Asked if the group are still offered deals to reform, Byrne told Digital Spy: "I haven't heard any of those offers for a while.

"For a while yes - there was offers for Talking Heads to do a reunion tour and that sort of thing, but it didn't seem very likely."

Byrne added: "We kind of separated for creative reasons - there was animosity - but that wasn't the only reason we went our own ways."

Of his Here Lies Love collaboration with Fatboy Slim in 2005, he said: "It's not dead yet. I'm working with a theatre in New York - so it may see the light of day as a live production someday."

Byrne's new concert film Ride, Rise, Roar is available on DVD now.
