Blondie, Queen of Punk?

Was Deborah Harry, aka Blondie, the most beautiful Punk ever?

Was she punk? Was Blondie punk? With her two-toned bleached-blonde hair, the front woman of new wave band Blondie is the ultimate 70s icon.

“She’s unique: certainly one of the most creative people that I’ve worked with, which probably comes from the Andy Warhol influence and her New York background. She’s endlessly drawing inspiration from those around her and twisting their looks to work for her.”

They helped change the music scene from Hard Rock music and Disco to Post-Punk & New Wave. They were a prelude to the ’80s.
