Page: Booking Stars Ltd.

 

An American Group "Blondie" was named as a tribute to its leader's nickname. The band was founded by a former waitress Debbie Harry and a guitarist Chris Stein in 1974. The first album was released in 1976. "Blondie" toured a lot, performing at different night clubs and gaining popularity. They played punk, but always claimed that they didn't follow the exact music style.

The most popular and well-known songs of "Blondie" are "Maria", "Heart of Glass" and "Call me".

"Blondie" are one of several "new wave" bands that have grown up in punk rock. True, its members refused to categorize their music all the way, although throughout its existence the style changed from punk and hard rock to reggae, disco and hip-hop.

Former waitress Debbie Harry began her creative career with the all-girls band The Stilettoes and then with the folk band Wind In The Willows. In 1974, in New York, she met guitar student Chris Stein, and the couple decided to stir up their project.

The group, which was joined the following year by drummer Clem Bark, bassist Gary Valentine and keyboardist Jimmy Destry, was named "Blondie" after the vocalist. Hanging out constantly in central New York City clubs such as CBGB's, Max's Kansas City and Mothers, the band quickly gained popularity. In 1976 "Blondie" recorded their self-titled debut LP.

The listeners liked the record, and the band went on a tour of the States, playing the opening act for David Bowie and Iggy Pop. 1977 saw the release of their second album, "Plastic Letters", while the band began to expand into Europe and Asia. Worldwide success came to "Blondie" in 1978, when they began to churn out hit after hit from "Denis Denis". Almost all of the singles were at the top of the charts, and the album "Parallel Lines" sold 20 million copies. The coolest songs were "Sunday girl" and "Heart of glass". By that time, Blondie had practically forgotten their punk roots and reoriented themselves to the pop market.

On a wave of success, Debbie began acting in films, and her first film was "Union City". The fourth and fifth albums continued to lead the group to the conquest of the musical Olympus and were very popular among music lovers. Needless to say, both of these discs were platinum.

It took a full 16 years before the former colleagues got back together. In 1999, "Blondie" released the album "No exit", which sold over 2 million copies. The most notable song on it was "Maria", which topped the charts in 14 countries. The band undertook a couple of global European-American tours before heading back to the studio to delight their fans with a new album.
