this is how they dressed at the BBC back then.
debbie’s stage persona of streetwise, sexy, cool became so closely associated with the group’s name that many came to believe debbie’s name was “blondie”
ok so maybe only blondie could save jersey, but even she was originally born in miami (florida) and was adopted by her to-be family in new jersey. in any case KL got us all curious now and we had to search it out. here’s the collage, or rather the barrage, of blondies retro-pix and a quote from debbie in the no exit tour book, hope you enjoy:
“hi, it’s deb. you know, when i woke up this morning i had a realization about myself. i was always blondie. people always called me blondie, ever since i was a little kid. what i realized is that at some point i became ‘dirty harry’. i couldn’t be blondie anymore, so i became dirty harry.” by xy
