Oh man, "pre-madonna." That's a new one to me... but so great.

That would be a good name for a punk band. The Pre-Madonnas.

I'm not even sure who you could call pre-Madonna. I know you can call Lady Gaga "Post-Madonna", though.

Then Madonna would be "post-Debbie Harry." (And I would think GaGa is more "post-Dale Bozzio" http://www.flickr.com/photos/46609124@N07/6060361772/in/photostream). Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I knew you were going to say that. In fact, I almost included her just for you.

^You know me better than I thought :)

Blondie is on tour now.

Debbie Harry still rules.

Pretty much, even with a bad wig:

I can't stand "Should of" instead of "Should've." It doesn't even come close to making sense!

I've been guilty of this. It's the way a lot of West Virginians speak. They emphasize the "of" sound in Should've (but it sounds more like "uuv"). Because this has been pointed out to me before, I am very aware of it now, like most mistakes that are mentioned here at one point or another.

I received my edumacation from CoasterBuzz Academy of Language Arts. :D

I unfortunately hear this so much every week from a coworker that it's starting to sound weird to me to hear it said correctly. Tragic.

Expanding on Andy's example, "should (or would) of went" makes me borderline homicidal.

Ugh, I saw her open for Tears For Fears circa 1990 and she was f'ing terrible. Really bad. She almost ruined the Luscious Jackson song "Fantastic Fabulous" about a decade later.

^Debbie tends to get very mixed reviews, especially when she (or Blondie, if she is with them) doesn't do the big *hits*. On that tour, rumor was Tears For Fears got rid of her early on b/c more people were coming just to see Debbie, and leaving before TFF. She's an odd-ball, and just perfect that way. More power to her for not always sticking to 'hits'. That gets very old.


She also rode all the Kings Island coasters the night she was there, in 1990 with Ramones on the Escape from NY tour.


@Lucious Jackson, Debbie played drums for them for a while.

That's a shame. I'd be way more interested in seeing Tears than Blondie.

I'd love to see that double bill. Especially since Roland and Curt have been performing together again.

There was no double bill about that show. She staggered on stage, bit off some rose pedals, spit them out, and then started spitting out awful singing for five or six too songs. It was really terrible. That was the tour where TFF had Oleta Adams touring with them, and she would've made a much better opening act.

Egads. That does sound bad.

I also liked TFF when only Roland was (in) the band. Different dynamic, but some good stuff.
