Blondie Live Set At Bbc Maida Vale - 40Th Anniversary

Recommended Posts

Ms Harry never put on an ounce of weight! My favourite scene is in the original "Hairspray" where a clock-bomb explodes on her head!

Pretty powerful stuff, the band have a lot in the tank if they want it I think. Age has caught up with her a little, but the voice is still good, if not as mighty as it once was. I suppose the thing is, she was actually older than we though when she was first seen bouncing around in a bin bag etc.?

I remember a conversation back in the late 70's. My friend told me that Debbie Harry was "really old, like, thirty."

Yeah, she was "old" to be bouncing around on TOTP`s, but her energy and looks made her appear much younger? At the time I though she was about 20.

Its caught up with the guys in the band a lot more - Chris Stein looks like he has one foot in the grave

Then again they probably had less plastic surgery

I have a large Debbie Harry mirrored picture that I've had since the turn of the 70's/80's. Very stylish and almost everyone who visits my house covets it, including my sons friends. It's quite a rare piece of memorabilia now but no way would I sell it.

That's great! As Mr Amish points out most mirrors make me look like my dad!

Hmmm.. they sound good in places, but sadly Harry and Stein both look like someone wheeled them out of the care home :unsure:

People like Jagger really kept themselves in shape and look great onstage. It must have taken huge effort and motivation though.

I already mentioned this on a music thread a while back, but Deb(bie)orah Harry is 33 in this clip...

As for the state of the rest of the band my understanding is that they invested everything they earned in a lot of drugs.

She looks quite stiff when she moves even here, as if she was wearing a back brace or something. So age is not the reason she doesn`t move much in the recent video? I assume they have replaced the keyboard player and a guitarist with younger versions, or did they just do Botox instead of hard drugs? Great band BTW.

What hit me at the time was the realisation that she was only four years younger than my mum.

There was an acrimonious falling out with 1/2 the band, which featured this as a highlight...

In March 2006, Blondie were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[6] Seven members were invited to the ceremony, which resulted in an on-stage spat between the extant group and their former bandmates, Nigel Harrison and Frank Infante, who asked during the live broadcast of the ceremony to be allowed to perform with the group. Their request was refused by Deborah Harry, who stated that the band's current line-up were already prepared for the performance.

I saw Debbie Harry sometime in the nineties, and thought it was a bit disturbing even then, a bit like watching your gran in her undies.

Now Debbie definitely was hot in the 70s, but I am surprised sometimes when I see old clips of other lust objects, like the girls from abba say, by how much older (and less hot) they actually were at the time than I thought.

30 years old?!? That's bloody ANCIENT!

I am lucky enough to have a signed Parallel Lines CD at home.

Off topic, but I also really liked another blonde singer of that era, Kim Wilde. In particular, Chequered Love and Kids in America are two TOP tunes IMHO.

Jagger cannily made himself look like a wrinkled prune before the age of 40 so any subsequent ageing wasn't too noticeable.

Wait until you see Madonna on stage in her underwear at 70...

Actually very normal looking girl! I have Kim's greatest hits somewhere! There weren't many of them, but the two you mentioned were good! I seem to remember a lot of girls had a Kim Wilde haircut back then!
