The definitve, must read history of Blondie. Debbie Harry, along with Chris Stein and Victor Bockris take the reader back in time, tracing the history of the band from it's humble Bowery origins all the way through their breakthrough worldwide succeses of the early 1980's. The (now) rare book is packed with amazing rare photos that make a copy worth almost whatever price you have to pay to obtain one.

Interesting book with a lot of ink given to people that never lived long enough to realize their full potential. This came out near the end of Blondie when it was first published. You get the feeling that so much more could have been said but Debbie and Chris are smart and funny so it;s well worth the read and the photographs by Chris Stein are remarkable.
I have an earlier edition of this. The definitive book on Blondie, Deb, Chris, and the phenomenon that was that band. Great photos, many by Chris Stein in a very intimate behind-the-scenes capture of their lives at home and on the road. Simply put, this is fabulous.
Debbie Harry is a great writer and she and I are both born on July 1st. I almost like this better than Patti Smith Just Kids.
