Blondie Deny UK Paper's Retirement Plans Report

(Classic Rock) Blondie have slammed a newspaper report that claimed singer Debbie Harry was planning to retire, putting an end to the veteran outfit's career. The Daily Mail quoted drummer Clem Burke saying:

"We've tried to keep it going for as long as possible, but it's just not up to me. Nothing is finalized yet � but obviously there's no Blondie without Debbie Harry."

The Mail added a comment from a band spokesman: "They are on hiatus at the moment and they will do some tour dates next year. Nothing is confirmed yet."

But Blondie have responded with a brief pointed statement on their Facebook page, saying: "No plans to stop working, don't believe everything you read."

In a slightly longer statement they add: "In relation to the recent news articles regarding Blondie breaking up: We want to clarify this rumor has no truth in it whatsoever." They had more to say.
