Blondie deny group set to split as Debbie Harry considers retirement
BLONDIE could be set to split as lead singer Debbie Harry is considering retiring, according to reports.
Drummer Clem Burke hinted that Harry was considering retiring in an interview this week.
“Debbie is 11 years older than the rest of us, so it's on her mind. We've tried to keep it going for as long as possible, but it's not just up to me.
“Nothing is finalised yet, but obviously there's no Blondie without Debbie Harry."
However the band have since issued a statement claiming that Harry’s retirement was a long way off, and that they had no plans to split any time in the future.
“In relation to the recent news articles regarding Blondie breaking up, we want to clarify this rumour has no truth in it whatsoever.
“We are still very much working together as a band on new music, plans for the future, and look forward to seeing our fans on tour around the globe."
