Debbie Harry was in the bands...

(1) Wind In The Willows. Who released an album in 1968 were Debbie vocals can be heard for the first time on record as well as playing instruments. Debbie wasn't the lead singer in the band though. They also did a demo of tapes for a second album were Debbie's vocal were more at the front but they got lost and still haven't been found to this day.

(2) Pure Garbage Started out a 3 piece "girl" group Elda Gentile and famous superstar drag queen Holly Woodlawn and another girl called Jamaica Kincaid started the group but Holly was offered a solo act at the club Reno Sweeney which Elda encouraged Holly to take which she did. Elda then asked Debbie when they met in the street one day if Debbie would be intrested in joining the group so Debbie joined and Debbie changed the name to the Stilettoes which become a campy girl group doing

cover songs in the clubs and bars of New York. Chris Stein later joined them as a guitarist but Debbie and Chris left the group to form another.

(3) After a few musician changes and name changes like Angela And The Snakes etc. Debbie come up with the name Blondie after she was going over to Chris's apartment one day, the truck drivers in the street started whistling and shouting hey Blondie the name and group was born and the rest is in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
