1978-1981 (ish) You were one of my childhood heroes - with your eclectic mix of rap, pop, reggae and disco you were oh so cool and I wanted to be you when I grew up.......
Last night I had the opportunity to see you live thanks to HAW's job we had a table for 14 at Epsom Downs racecourse for some evening racing and then you were playing at 9pm. I was VERY nervous but excited about going, what if you didn't meet my expectations?! What if you floundered on stage and gave a rubbish performance?? Would all my happy childhood memories of dancing in front of the mirror to "hanging on the telephone" be tarnished by this live performance??
Here are some of my favourite Blondie songs:
My all time favourite:
Here you are performing last night:
You were ATOMIC! I still can't believe you are 66 years young and I loved the blue tutu that was then whipped of to reveal a pair of hot pants...

Finally, I have to say, I *still* want to be you when I grow up!
Peace and Love
PS: If you live in London or in the surrounding counties, I can highly recommend Epsom Live! Every year they have some great bands which have included JLS (kids LOVED that one) Madness, Texas, The Wanted and the Beach Boys. On the 21st August they have the Rat Pack Show which I am going to take the whole family to including the grandparents. It's a great evening with lots of atmosphere and you may even win a few quid on the horses!!!!
