Smash Hits - June 10th - 23rd 1982
Pages 7, 12, 24, 25.
Yes, folks anyone can enjoy the benefits of a Hair Transplant! Look at pop singer Debbie Harry and boyfriend Chris Stein. BEFORE (top): back in '73, as members of New York punk band The Stillettos, the twosome pray for a miracle. AFTER (above): Bingo! By '82, the process is complete.
As if by magic, Big Name Bands are suddenly embarking on British tours. Not least of them is Blondie. Six dates have been slotted in for those wishing to witness the world's biggest wig in action - they're at Glasgow Apollo (September 1, 2),
Edinburgh Playhouse (4, 5),
Newcastle City Hall (7, 8),
Birmingham NEC (11, 12),
Wembley Arena (16, 17, 18, 19).
Contact the venues for details.
Making Tracks: The Rise Of Blondie is out and finding its way into discerning bookshops. It's a tale told mostly through the lens of the band's guitarist Chris Stein and that's mostly focussed on his extremely famous girlfriend, Debbie Harry. And it retails for £5.95.
Engaging stuff, though. And possibly even more engaging when it could be all yours for FREE. You heard right! Elm Tree Books have kindly donated six copies of this eye-catching volume to be dished out to the winners of the following puzzle.
Questions: one of the following was a hit for Blondie. Which? a) "Queen Of The Rapping Scene"; b) "Rapture"; c) "Going Back To My Roots"; d) "A Whiter Shade Of Pale".
Jot the answer and your name and address on a postcard (or the back of an envelope) and zip it in the direction of Smash Hits Blondie Competition, 52/55 Carnaby Street, London W1V 1PF. The magic hand will dip into the sack on June 24 and six lucky persons will find their library a little larger.
