Founding Blondie member Chris Stein is releasing vintage photos of the band online starting this week. Some of the pictures are from the beginning era of the iconic rock band’s career, some were taken on tour, and some are of them chillin’ with friends like Andy Warhol and Joan Jett. When asked about the shots, Stein reflected, “There was a lot of cool stuff happening in the late 70s and I was lucky enough to be in the middle of it with a camera. Posting them online and having them reach a new, younger generation of fans is really cool.” Check them out below, and if you’re a Debbie superfan you can buy them at The Morrison Hotel Gallery.
