Debbie Harry

Debbie Harry is an American singer, songwriter and actress, known as the lead singer of the new wave band Blondie. Her contributions to the music industry and her influence on popular culture are widely acknowledged. Born in Miami, Florida, and raised in Hawthorne, New Jersey, Harry first came to prominence as a backup singer for the rock band The Stilettos in the early 1970s. She joined Blondie in 1974 and rose to fame as the band’s lead singer with her distinctive voice and image. With hits such as “Heart of Glass”, “Call Me”, “Rapture” and “The Tide Is High”, Blondie became one of the most successful American bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s. They are still active today.

Chris Stein

As the guitarist, co-founder and primary songwriter of Blondie, Chris Stein has been integral to the band’s success. He is also a photographer and filmmaker.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Stein grew up in a Jewish family. His father was a graphic artist and his mother was a dancer. He became interested in rock music as a teenager and formed his first band, the Pikeys, with future Blondie drummer Clem Burke.

Stein attended Parsons School of Design in New York City, where he met Deborah Harry. The two began dating and they eventually moved in together. In 1974, they formed Blondie with guitarist Freddie Rotter and bassist Gary Valentine. The band became one of the most successful acts of the late 1970s and early 1980s, thanks to hits like “Heart of Glass,” “Call Me” and “The Tide Is High.”

In 1982, Stein was diagnosed with pemphigus vulgaris, a rare autoimmune disease that causes blistering of the skin and mucous membranes. This led to a period of physical and emotional turmoil for Stein, as he struggled with his health and watched Harry’s solo career take off. The couple eventually reconciled and Blondie reformed in 1997. They continue to tour and release new music today.
