Peggy Lee Tribute
April 25, 2003

Billboard reports: Singer/songwriter/event producer Richard Barone is putting together "There'll Be Another Spring: A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee" as the flagship show for this year's JVC Jazz Festival. The concert is slated for June 23 at New York's Carnegie Hall. Signed up so far, Barone says, are Deborah Harry, Ronnie Milsap, Jane Monheit, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Shirley Horn, Peter Cincotti, Eartha Kitt, Petula Clark, Bea Arthur, Maria Muldaur, Cy Coleman, Mike Stoller, Freddy Cole, Rita Moreno, and Nancy Sinatra.

Song choices will favor the late Lee's own compositions (with collaborators like Coleman, Duke Ellington, and Johnny Mandel and including such classics as "Manana" and "He's a Tramp") and those written especially for her by the likes of Leiber & Stoller and Paul McCartney. Original arrangements by Gordon Jenkins, Nelson Riddle, and Quincy Jones, among others, will also be featured.

Lee died in January 2002 at the age of 81.

Dead Man's Socks
March 9, 2003

We just received word on this off-Broadway play of interest to Blondie fans - here's the description: "Modern-day tales of love and melancholia swirl in a fluid, heady concoction of punk rock. Mediated by the pulsing rhythms of Blondie, the lives of four gay men collide and intersect in random patterns as each one navigates New York's Nether World searching for their slippery dreams. Moving freely between the corporate hallways of Wall Street and the red splashed cubicles of sex clubs, Dead Man's Socks is a peek into the shifty alternate world of transacted identities and negotiated love. The Ma-Yi Theater Company presents this new play written and directed by Ralph B. Peña." Check it out at Theatermania.

New Album Updates
February 27, 2003

Here's some updates on the new album.

The CD was originally scheduled to be released in the US and Canada on Beyond Records in February 2003, as referred to on the recent "Greatest Hits" CD and DVD. However, Beyond Records, the company that was to release the album, has since closed it's doors. Fortunately, Blondie retains the rights to the recorded material, which leaves them free to release it in North America on another label (no estimated time of arrival yet).

The album is still on schedule outside North America. The band has licensed the new CD to Sony International, and it is currently scheduled to be released in the UK and Europe at the end of May 2003.

The staff will update this page as soon as we know any more information. We also want to thank you for your enthusiasm and unwavering support of Blondie. Keep those emails coming in!

On TV In February
February 4, 2003

02/06/03 - 08:30 am ET SHO2 - Roadie (1980)
Meat Loaf, Art Carney, Blondie, and Alice Cooper star in this classic drive-in rock and roll comedy.

02/07/03 - 08:00 am ET SUND (Sundance) - The Blank Generation (1976)
The early days of the New York punk scene are captured in this vivid film time capsule created by Amos Poe (Frogs for Snakes) and Ivan Kral, songwriter and former guitarist for the Patti Smith Group. Legendary performances by the Ramones, Blondie, The Talking Heads, Wayne County and the Heartbreakers, filmed live in gritty, silent, black-and-white at CBGBs in 1976, are paired with historic contemporary recordings by each group. Chroniclers of early punk believe these may be the earliest - if not the only - existing film footage of many of these bands from this formative period. (1976) TVPG (0:53) Stereo/BW

02/07/03 - 04:00 pm ET OVA - Music Express
Irish DJ Dave Fanning interviews the reunited group Blondie.

02/08/03 - 05:45 am ET SUND (Sundance) - Downtown 81 (2000)
Before he shot to international fame in the art world, Jean-Michel Basquiat acted in this energetic, semi-biographical fantasy about a struggling artist and musician in the boho world of New York's Lower Manhattan. Nearly twenty years after the film was shot in 1980 and '81, by fashion photographer Edo Bertoglio from a script by rock critic and producer Glenn O'Brien, this feature's footage was rediscovered; what was originally a film to be called New York Beat reached screens two decades later with a title that reflects its unique historic value. Here is a fascinating shot-on-the-streets glimpse of a New York that no longer exists: when graffiti was emerging as a controversial new art form, in which West 42nd Street was a notorious arcade of sleaze and vice, and where performers like Kid Creole and the Coconuts, James White and the Blacks and the Japanese new wave band The Plastics were packing them in at the newest downtown clubs. Besides Basquiat, who was to die of an overdose only eight years later and whose life became the subject of fellow New York artist Julian Schnabel's award-winning 1996 dramatic film, Downtown 81 also features Deborah Harry in the role of a magical street person.

02/08/03 at 08:30 pm EST and 02/09/03 - 02:30 am ET COM (Comedy Central) - Absolutely Fabulous in New York
Break out the champagne and celebrate, sweetie - those outrageous heroines of hedonism are back! Patsy (Joanna Lumley) and Edina (Jennifer Saunders) cross the Atlantic for a one-hour "Absolutely Fabulous in New York" special. "Absolutely Fabulous in New York" is a BBC Production in association with COMEDY CENTRAL and will include the original cast members. The special also features special guest stars Whoopi Goldberg, Debbie Harry, Graham Norton, Danny Burstein, Rufus Wainwright and Josh Hamilton as Edina's long-lost son, Serge.

Thanks to Nichole Parosky for compiling this information.
