We take a look at some interesting facts that you might not know about Debbie Harry's band, Blondie.
Long before 'Blondie' was thought about, Chris Stein began playing the guitar in a band called The Stilettos and became involved with one of the band’s singers, Debbie Harry. Eventually the two left the band to start ‘Angel and the Snake’, dubbed ‘Blondie’ in 1975 after Harry’s nickname.
Blondie’s 1981 album 'The Hunter' includes the track ‘For Your Eyes Only’, which was originally recorded for the James Bond film. However, the producers rejected it and went for a song by Sheena Easton.
The super-cool Debbie Harry started singing in choir and was even a cheerleader in high school.
