Spotted this over on J.Yuenger’s excellent blog, but I remember first seeing it in the book, Making Tracks: The Rise of Blondie, which originally came out in 1982, but was re-released in 1998. My friend Walt was this massive Blondie fan and he treated that book like the Holy Grail. In any case, I’ve always loved this shot. I have no idea where the photograph was taken (the only caption info from the book being “Debbie and Clem trying to walk down the street”), but it still completely reeks of cool.
I saw a picture of the Blondie kids quite recently (eek! Click here) and suffice to say, the bloom is slightly off the rose (`cos, ya know, I haven’t aged a day!), but they’ll always have style for miles, as far as I’m concerned.
Haven’t heard their new one, but here’s a taste of their heyday.
