You can be in my band .. it is called "Quiksilver".. we are kind of just a 'basement' band at the moment, but with an incredible lead singer like you..

okay.. so our playlist is Guitar Hero World Tour.. but you got to start jamming somewhere.

Btw, I am currently in Chicago!!!

Have you Blondie fans seen Forever Lulu? Some silly Debbie Harry action in it.

Too right! Last weekend, I caught a live studio session show with Blondie and it was awesome. They talked and talked. She definitely had some stories.

Quick snip.. she commented on how she loves performing live.. and the chaos of it all, how something can go wrong and you pull through it.. live music!! She mentioned doing a show with Fergie (gag) and how everything was so choreographed and how it's totally not her thing.. [Wink]

They played this song, live on that show:

Blondie - Mother ..not bad.

I also ended up watching that documentary that Valley mentioned.. great stuff!

I was looking for live material of Blondie in their prime, and i came across this :

 -

This is really, really good !

It's a CD / DVD combopack. Disc 1 has a full concert from new year's eve 1979 at the Apollo Theatre in Glasgow.
Disc 2 (the DVD) has footage of that same concert, plus additional Blondie performances at Top Of The Pops
and The Old Grey Whistle Test, all from '78 and '79.

It's an official release from Chrysalis Records, so NO bootleg quality here !

Gotta love Blondie.

Saw them live last september. It was a small intimate concert and I wasn't expecting too much from it, but wow, Debbie Harry still has an amazing voice and stage presence. They also did a cover of The Beastie Boys' Fight for Your Right, which was fun.

Yeah, i heard that Beasty Boys cover.. they also did it at their Glastonbury gig in the UK last year.

By the way, here's the '79 show : www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfZNC9d_w98

The CD is much more complete though, running 80 minutes (minus a few seconds) and has a tracklist of 22 songs !

And here's Blondie giving a studio performance at the BBC last year, which also includes the Beasty Boys cover :

I wonder what you guys think about this one :

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScndRcrZB2E

From Blondie's 2014 album Ghosts Of Download, it's a cover version of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Relax.

I actually liked the first three minutes or so..they really did something original with the song.
I was somewhat less impressed with the second half, which might be closer to Frankie's original,
but not really my kind of thing, i guess.

It's different alright...

I can't say it's bad + it grows on you.

Perhaps potential horror movie/soundtrack material? Creepy but with the use of the piano, beautiful at the same time.

Didn't care for the second half either.
