Debbie Harry Believes Her 1980s Solo Work HaD Been ‘Overlooked’

BiskbGOCYAEVCIKDebbie Harry thinks her solo work had been ‘overlooked’ She is best known for being the lead singer of the punk rock/new wave band Blondie, and the sixty eight year old thinks that her 1980‘s material had been. In 1982 she perused a solo career after she parted ways with the band, and even though she kept on working, she had to take care of her band-mate Chris Stein who came down with auto-immune condition pemphigus vulgaris, and she had to care for him. She explained to Mojo magazine:

”It was a very difficult time. All I can say is that I did move on in the mid 80s and I started doing a series of solo albums which Chris wrote on and helped me with. I did not five up my career. I had a lot of tours and I had some smaller hits. I really think that there’s some great material on those solo albums that I feel to a degree has been overlooked.”

During her third album Called ‘Def, Dumb & Blonde’, in 1989, she started using her full name. Deborah Harry. She did this to be able to for her own identity, to break away form her Blondie image. Debbie added:

”That’s my proper name and I was trying to, as you say, draw a line in the sand between the Blondie identification and me as a solo artist. I think I was often confronted by the record company saying, ‘Why can’t you use the name Blondie?’ Well, I’d like to use the name Blondie, but it’s not Blondie, it’s me.”
