Pictures of Debbie Harry in 1970s-80s

“Hi, it’s Deb. You know, when I woke up this morning I had a realization about myself. I was always Blondie. People always called me Blondie, ever since I was a little kid. What I realized is that at some point I became Dirty Harry. I couldn’t be Blondie anymore, so I became Dirty Harry.”

Debbie Harry, New Jersey, 1978 – Image © Bob Gruen New Jersey’s own Debbie Harry is an icon and sex symbol (those dead eyes and daft lips…) of the 1970s Punk / New Wave / Art scene. She originally hailed from Hawthorne and went on to graduate from Centenary College in Hackettstown — all just a long stones’ throw from my own stomping grounds.

  1. I have always been fascinated by Debbie, both her looks and her voice. "Union City Blue" and "Denis" are my favorites.
