One of the most iconic groups of their generation, Blondie experienced an unparalleled rise to global superstardom during the late 1970s. As they topped charts around the globe, vocalist Deborah Harry adorned magazine covers and bedroom walls everywhere. Drawing upon extensive new firsthand interviews from Debbie Harry, Chris Stein and many other significant players in the band's long history, along with a huge archive of personal materials and unpublished interviews, Blondie: Parallel Lives is the definitive eye-witness account of the group's long and often tumultuous existence.Co-author Kris Needs established a friendship with Harry, Stein, and the rest of the band that endures to this day. As a trusted confidante, he now recounts the full story of the phenomenon that is Blondie. Beginning with the band members' childhoods, backgrounds and influences, the book charts the development of Blondie to their massive popular success, eventual break up, and the group's reformation in 1997. Highlighting Blondie's subsequent renaissance with their No Exit album, the controversies surrounding their 2006 induction to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, and the release of Panic of Girls in 2011, Blondie: Parallel Lives is the all-encompassing biography of the ever-adaptive group that defined a generation.
