David Byrne
David Byrne was born 14 May 1952, in Dumbarton, Scotland, to parents Tom (from Lambhill, Glasgow) and Emma. He is the elder of two children. Two years after his birth, his parents moved to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and then to Arbutus, Maryland, in the United States, when he was 8 or 9 years old. His father worked as an electronics engineer.
Before high school, Byrne already knew how to play the guitar, accordion, and violin. He was rejected from his middle school‘s choir because they claimed he was “off-key and too withdrawn”. From a young age, he had a strong interest in music. His parents say that he would constantly play his phonograph from age three and he learned how to play the harmonica at age five.  In his journals he says, “I was a peculiar young man—borderline Asperger’s, I would guess”.
