Debbie Harry, 1978
JUSTINE FRISCHMAN, ELASTICA
"Parallel Lines was one of the records my big brother left behind when he left home. It was the first record I really got into. The thing that was so appealing about her look was that she was both soft and hard. Her look is part angel, part prostitute. It comes across in her singing, too."
SUZI GARDNER, L7
"I won a radio promotion for a lookalike contest for Debbie Harry. I came in second place, and won her album and tickets to a Blondie show in Northern California."
MARCY DETROIT, EX-SHAKESPEARS SISTER, NOW SOLO
"I really liked Heart of Glass. Blondie was the introduction of New Wave, which opened the door in experimentation in music and image for many of us, including myself."
SARAH CRACKNELL, SAINT ETIENNE
"She represents true pop, but she's also a parody of the classic pop image of the blonde girl."
HELEN STOREY, FASHION DESIGNER
"Debbie Harry was maybe the first and last to be pretty and punk in an era of Polystyrene and Siouxsie and the Banshees, but she was accepted musically while remaining a 'girl'."
SADIE FROST, ACTRESS
"She always used to remind me of my mother - God knows why. She was just soooo sexy. She was the first woman to really be completely unapologetic about her sexuality - that just appealed to everyone. I remember she was the first woman girls would admit to having a crush on. I still listen to her songs."
