Are there any other huuuuge Blondie fans out there?? I not only love the music but I love Debbie Harry. She is just so… COOL. You know? Bad ass chick in a punk band with platinum hair!?
She began her music career in the late 60s.
“Blondie” was formed in the 70s and man did they ever rock.
Here’s the super talented Debbie Harry and some of her quotes..
“The only thing I really wanted to be was a beatnik, and look what happened: I ended up being in a band.”
“I’m a culture vulture, and I just want to experience it all.”
“I feel one of the things I brought to rock and roll was that sort of movie star glamour and image, and that’s what always fascinated me. I always wanted to be that blonde, glowing woman on film, and it was sort of automatically thrown at my feet — and I went with it.”
“You know, the issues of humanity and what is fair treatment and good treatment of a fellow human being should not really be based on a personal sense of right and wrong or judgment.”
“I have a lot of regrets, but I’m not going to think of them as regrets.”
“I could be a housewife… I guess I’ve vacuumed a couple of times.”
“Music is wonderful. Especially if there’s some kind of content to it.”
“Lately I’ve been believing that music predates speech.”
“We probably, as primitive people, made music before we actually had a language, and that’s where language comes from.”
“Morality should have to do with killing people or hurting them or stealing from them, but when it comes to adult choices, I don’t see it.”
“I think it’s a Blondie tradition that all of our albums sort of have a wide spread of styles.”
“I don’t mind if my skull ends up on a shelf as long as it’s got my name on it.”
“Why should you force your brain cells to remember a lot of stuff when the most important thing you can do is to come up with new stuff?”
“The only person I really believe in is me.”
“You always fall for the rascal or the guy who’s got a little bit of the devil in him. You can’t help it.”
“I wish I had invented sex.”
“I feel like I have to have a voice.”
“I do know the effect that music still has on me – I’m completely vulnerable to it. I’m seduced by it.”
“I really, really like writing songs.”
“I mean I think that Blondie’s influence is a little bit in a way more eclectic than those bands.”
“Capote wrote every day. He said that’s the only way, you have to sit down every day and do it.”
“A lot of the bands were really, really different and a lot of them actually didn’t become huge but I think were hugely influential.”
“That was always what I felt was the beauty of Rock ‘n’ Roll, it was entertainment and showbiz yet it had the idea of the voice of the people, it had an essence to it which was socially motivated. Not that I want to change to world, you know? But it was sort of relevant to real life, it involved the real essence of poetry or the real essence of fine art. But it was also entertainment. That was the real vitality.”
