There’s been a lot of talk about biopics featuring rock musicians lately. There’s the Hendrix movie featuring André 3000 as the late guitarist, and also the Freddie Mercury film which has been surrounded by much drama as of late.
When Blondie singer Debbie Harry was interviewed by Stylist magazine (via NME) recently, she expressed interest in a possible biopic featuring her legendary band: “It's difficult. You can only really skim the surface. If it's good entertainment, honest, well-acted and directed? Maybe,” said the singer before continuing “I think many people could be informed and have a finer appreciation of the person or era.”
However, Debbie said she would probably not be the best source of information about specific events in her career: “My impressions will simply be that, impressions. It's funny, someone will say something and then a memory will come flashing back of some big event. But I'm noteless. I guess I'm lazy. Well, I'm not so much a person who deals with facts as much as feelings.”
