One of the most famous women in rock, Deborah Harry formed the legendary punk/new wave band Blondie in 1974. She launched her solo career in 1981 with KOO KOO; produced by Chic mainstays Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, the album showcased Harry's funkier more dancefloor-oriented predilections. Harry also maintained a fairly robust acting career, appearing in numerous films including John Water’s HAIRSPRAY. She scored a U.K. Top 10 hit in 1986 with "French Kissing in the USA," and in the mid 1990s Harry further illuminated the diversity of her talents by singing with the avant-garde Jazz Passengers. The beloved rock icon joined the reformed Blondie in 1997, and continued to appear with them on and off for many years.
