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.
