Debbie Harry Caricature, illustrated here wearing the iconic Creem Magazine “Boy Howdy” T-shirt, in 1977 age 32.
Harry is an American singer, songwriter and actress, known as the lead singer of the band Blondie.
Born in Miami, Florida, Harry was adopted as an infant and raised in Hawthorne, New Jersey. After attending college, she worked various jobs, including as a secretary, dancer, and Playboy Bunny, before breaking through in the music industry.
Harry co-formed Blondie in 1974 in New York City with guitarist Chris Stein. With her beauty, daring choice of clothing, and two-tone bleached-blonde hair, Harry quickly became a punk icon.
Originally billed as Angel and the Snake for two shows in August 1974, they renamed themselves Blondie by October 1974.
The name derived from comments made by truck drivers who catcalled “Hey, Blondie” to Harry as they drove past.
The band were pioneers in the American punk and then the new wave scene of the mid-1970s in New York. Their first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although highly successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles including “Heart of Glass”, “Call Me”, “Rapture” and “The Tide Is High”. The band became noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco, pop, reggae, and early rap music.
Blondie disbanded after the release of its sixth studio album, The Hunter, in 1982. Debbie Harry continued to pursue a solo career with varied results after taking a few years off to care for partner Chris Stein, who was diagnosed with pemphigus, a rare autoimmune disease of the skin.
The band re-formed in 1997, achieving renewed success and a number one single in the United Kingdom with “Maria” in 1999.
Blondie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.
