Deborah Ann Harry began her musical career in the late ’60s with the folk rock group The Wind in the Willows who recorded one album for Capitol Records. Harry then joined The Stilettos, with Elda Gentile and Amanda Jones, in 1974. The Stilettos included her eventual boyfriend and Blondie guitarist Chris Stein. When Harry and Stein left the Stilletos, they formed Angel and the Snake, with Tish and Snooky Bellomo. Shortly thereafter, Harry and Stein formed Blondie, naming it after the term of address men often yelled at Harry. After a debut album in 1976, commercial success followed in the late 1970s to the early 1980s, first in Australia and Europe, then in the United States.

While leading Blondie, Harry and Stein became life as well as musical partners, although they never married. In the mid-1980s, she took a few years off to nurse Stein back to health after he suffered a life-threatening disease. Stein and Harry broke up in the 1990s, but they have continued to work together. In 1999, she was called the 12th greatest woman of rock and roll by VH1’s 100 Greatest Women of Rock & Roll and in 2002, she was called the 18th sexiest artist of all time by VH1’s 100 Sexiest Artists.

I’m a self-taught artist from the North of England and I like to inject a bit of humour wherever possible, whether it’s in my writing (see my poems), or my artwork.
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave comments on any pieces you like.

    This has a nice style to it Margaret especially the way you have hinted the black dress in the black background. I too use to be an ardent fan of hers in her younger days although not so much now as she has had one too many come back concerts. If she stopped using hair dye now they’d have to start calling her ‘Greyie’.

  • Poor Debs. I saw Blondie in concert back in 1980, and no doubt about it she was very gorgeous. Time can be cruel. Thanks Gary.

    Great Likeness! I remember Blondie from the 70’s & early 80’s when their music was played constantly.

  • It was a great time for music. Thanks Robyn.
