Blondie Denies Retirement Rumors

Blondie isn't ready for a fond farewell just yet. The band has just posted a Facebook note denying that Debbie Harry is ready to hang up her microphone once and for all.

Longtime drummer Clem Burke raised some speculation in an interview with Britain's Daily Mail, in which he said, "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 finalized yet, but obviously there's no Blondie without Debbie Harry."

The band quickly moved to "clarify" Burke's statement with a note to fans reading, "No plans to stop working. Don't believe everything you read."
