Blondie's emergence at New York's CBGB's and other haunts with lead singer and frontwoman Debbie Harry brought an instant glamour to punk and made superstars of the band. Harry, an ex-Playboy bunny, also made rock star wannabes of many fans. In this large-format book, Mick Rock documents the beginnings, the highs, and the lows of the group - with particular emphasis on Harry - in 150 powerful never-before-published images of Blondie at work and play. Included is a DVD that features an exclusive interview with the photographer and the lead singer. A foreword by Debbie Harry gives an insider perspective on the images and the heady times they portray.

The photographer had a few nice sessions with Debbie Harry and got useful pictures for covers and advertising purposes. There were a couple of sessions with all the members of the band which resulted in some relaxed shots. There was an OK session with Debbie at home with band-member and partner Chris Stein - little make-up and looking quite ordinary. Most of all these sessions were also put on an accompanying 20 minute DVD which gives you the feel of the photographer and Ms Harry.
He seems talented at getting Debbie to perform for the camera. Otherwise, he is a bit of a creep, at the end obviously cashing on her fame, although the first outings were before either had achieved much fame.
The title of the book comes from the title of a song by the band.
