Last Friday, my 22 year old daughter and I were so happy to see Blondie, one of our favorite groups, at the Los Angeles County Fair in Pomona. It was worth the three-hour drive out with traffic to see lead singer Deborah Harry, the amazing, inspiring 71-year-old legend rock out! She energetically covered all her hits, and never missed a beat. Her rapport with the audience was awesome! I have always loved the beauty, immediacy, high spirits, and positive energy of her music.
