Being big BLONDIE fans we decided to pay tribute to New York's classic new wave band of the 70s and 80s. CBGBs was the Holy Grail of American Punk and New Wave, where the real Blondie played some of their first shows. Debbie Harris and the boys have met members of Blondie and have been officially endorsed by the band. Deborah Harry got in touch when she heard we were playing CBGBs and wished us good luck and both Deborah Harry and Chris Stein have signed Andy's guitars. When Clem Burke, Blondie's charasmatic drummer, found out that we were making a replica of his Premier drum kit, he arranged for us to meet him and even signed our bass drum skin! The boys proudly use their signed instruments in our live shows. Debbie Harris, lead vocalist of Bootleg Blondie, has the looks,the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie Bombshell and like her heroine is typically outrageous on stage. She has been known to wear dustbin liners, thigh length boots and t.shirts with more holes than t.shirt!
