A letter to Blondie....

Dear Blondie,

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

S.A.M xx

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!!!!

  1. 66?!? Wow, she still sounds amazing. My sister met her a few years ago as she was doing the voice over on a documentary her company was working on. She got a signed framed photo of her at the end and I have to say I was very jealous!

  9. I don't know if it's just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your website.
    It seems like some of the written text on your content are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know
    if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue
    with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.

  10. Here the site facilitates you to play the game Minecraft only on a
    map dynamically generated under your eyes or multiplayer on dedicated servers.

    Yes, each obsidian currently comes from a magma spring, which is limited in theory, but since magma springs are quite common in the grand scheme
    of 32000x32000 meters, I figure it really doesn't matter.
    This may be the commonly used type mainly by pc-based multi-players.
