About Blondie:

Blondie is perhaps the most commercially successful band to emerge from the 1970s  scene. They formed in New York in 1974. The original lineup consisted of Deborah Harry (vocals), Clem Burke(drums / percussion), Jimmy Destri (keyboards), Chris Stein (guitar / bass guitar) and Gary Valentine (bass guitar / guitar).

Blondie released their first album Blondie in 1976. The album was mildly successful and spawned the Australian hit single “In The Flesh”.
Gary Valentine left the band later that year, and they continued briefly as a foursome, recording Plastic Letters which contained the hit “Denis”.

They added Los Angeles-based musician Frank Infante(guitar / bass guitar) in 1977 who replaced Gary Valentine. Infante had already played guitar on one track on Plastic Letters. The band went out playing live with Infante and Stein swopping between playing guitar and bass guitar through out each concert. They then also added British born but LA-based Nigel Harrison (bass guitar), making Blondie a six piece for the first time. Harrison was a former member of the  band Silverhead.

In 1978 they released the album that would make them international stars, Parallel Lines. The album spawned several hit singles, including the number one hit “Heart Of Glass”, “Sunday Girl”, “Hanging On The Telephone” and “One Way Or Another”.

They released three more albums (1979’s Eat To The Beat, 1980’s Autoamerican (containing the number one singles “The Tide Is High” and “Rapture”) and 1982’s The Hunter) and a number one single “Call Me” in 1980.
