Debbie Harry: L.A. Woman?

Blondie was inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk last week in Hollywood. RockWalk is the only sidewalk gallery dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of rock 'n' roll, blues and R&B.

Blondie is currently on the road with the New Cars for The Road Rage Tour 2006 presented by VH1 Classic. (From left to right Chris Stein, Deborah Harry, and Clem Burke).

In case you haven't seen/heard this, there's a fun new remix of "Rapture" out now called "Rapture/Riders" Blondie vs. The Doors, that cleverly mixes "Riders On the Storm" with the classic Blondie hit.


UPDATE: As I reported, Blondie was inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk on Monday, May 22, 2006. Jimmy Destri missed the bus the first time out, but he added his own handprints on Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2006! Congrats to Jimmy, but when is he going to come clean about why he's (apparently) disowned his fellow Blondies? He was in the thick of the "No Exit" reunion (he penned their great comeback hit "Maria"), but by the time the tour for "The Curse of Blondie" finally happened, he had long since been replaced on the road. Where's "Behind the Music" when you need a follow-up?

UPDATE 2: Sounds like the band is the one that distanced itself from Jimmy, citing his drug use. Maybe that's why he missed the bus!
