There should be a dozen books about Blondie, and I don’t know if that would even approach the idea of telling the whole story of the band.

Debbie Harry is a serious artist and she should be treated as such. I waved away that dismissive nonsense from the Washington Post that popped up the other day because there will always be people who didn’t understand the drive that Harry had to make popular music and succeed on her own terms. Yes, there was an entire band behind her, as well as management and producers and they all did incredible, ground-breaking work.

But someone had to stand out in front and sing, and that made her an icon. Now you get to read about how she felt about it.
