Haven't seen Debrah Harry around in awile, is she in witness protection with you Danno? :o

I met Debra Harry. She's from Lincroft NJ and her family owned the Lincroft Inn. Back around 1978-9 I rented an apartment that was originally servant quarters in a big old house. My landlord was a local, owned a business downtown, and knew all kinds of people in the music scene. The tenant before me was the lead singer from the Ian Hunter band, who left quickly when they went on tour. He left a huge bookcase full of scrap books of bands he was in etc. It was fun to go through.

Anyway, I was friendly with my landlord so he'd invite me downstairs when he had folks over. I met Debra Harry, the Ian Hunter Band and Melanie. I was away one weekend and he told me Bruce was over. Oh well, I'd already met Bruce, I used to deliver pizzas to his house when he lived in Holmdel, NJ.

If you'd seen her lately, you'd know . . . NOT!

The years . . . and everything else involved . . . have not been kind to Ms. Harry.

She has to find her own hideout.

And this all led me to change my avatar as well. My last one was Dwight D Eisenhower, not because Harry had Truman, but because it had something to do with a build I thought I was starting, but didn't. Oh well.

This one is me back when I was about 12 with my brandy new Raleigh Chopper, the Euro version of an Orange Crate!

You do realize that she's an almost 70 year old rocker, right?

Duh. You think?

Actually, she's 68 and "Heart of Glass" was the big hit 34 years ago.

She was way hot back then, :wub:

but looks way too much like Hilary now. :unsure:

OR you could look at her as she appears in Vogue/Spain 2013, with hair and makeup attended to. I have no idea about retouching. Hey, Sophia Loren is about a decade older and still looks hot, as does Catherine Deneuve. But they all may have benefited from Bondo and CA.

If you've ever gone on one of those "Celebrities without makeup" sites you would be freaked out seeing some famous people who you thought you knew what they look like. Scary stuff.

The photo of Debbie Harry that Dean posted is of her without all the war paint (or very little of it)... but I'd say not all that bad for 68!

Euro version? Are you a service brat ?

Yes. That photo was taken in Pirmasens, Germany where we lived at the time. The PX stocked Raleigh bikes. My Chopper was a Euro version, where generator run head and tail lights and pedal reflectors were mandatory equipment even back then. The generator was in the center hub of the front wheel and would be a very rare bike if I still had it today!
