Debbie Harry interview in the NJ Star Ledger

Recommended Posts

Debbie "Blondie" Harry was born and raised in Hawthorne. She used to listen to the Cabs while growing up. 

Excerpt from the article:

"The future rockstar’s first home was on Cedar Avenue by Goffle Brook Park. She would play in her very own “enchanted” forest (inhabited by migrants) and leave the window open so she could hear the drum and bugle of the Hawthorne Caballeros. Harry’s baseball fan mother would kick her out of the house during games. Her father worked for a silk label manufacturer that had a mill in Paterson."

I remember first seeing "Blondie" on Solid Gold with the Solid Gold Dancers. #### I'm feeling old today.

Saw them few years earlier on one of the past midnight concert shows on tv. Must have been right after Three Mile Island as she gave a sermonette on ecology while band played end of a song. She was kind of slurring her words so couldn’t make it out real good.
