On the even of legendary Blondie frontwoman, Debbie Harry releasing her autobiography, FACE IT, an excerpt of the novel detailing a rendezvous between Harry, David Bowie and Iggy Pop has been released.
In the excerpt, shared with The Times, Harry details a drug-induced night that saw David Bowie expose his “notorious” penis after Harry gifted him and Pop with cocaine.
“One time David and Iggy [Pop] were looking for some blow. Their connection in New York had suddenly died and they were out,” Harry wrote.
“A friend had given me a gram, but I had barely touched it. I didn’t care for coke too much — it made me jittery and wired and it affected my throat. So I went upstairs with my vast quantity of cocaine and they just sucked it right up in one swoop.
“After they did the blow, David pulled out his cock — as if I were the official cock checker or something. Since I was in an all-male band, maybe they figured I really was the cock-check lady.
“David’s size was notorious, and he loved to pull it out with both men and women. It was so funny, adorable and sexy.”
When The Times asked Harry about the encounter she had with Bowie, she explained that Bowie flashing her was probably his way of thanking her for the cocaine.
“I guess I was sort of flattered, you know? He’s one of the great men that I admire in the music world, clearly a genius.”
Watch: Blondie – ‘Atomic’
FACE IT, is set to arrive on October 1st. The memoir will see Harry reflect on her wild life and career, promising “an arresting mix of visceral storytelling and stunning visuals that reflects the complexity of its subject.” The memoir will feature never-before-seen photographs and curated fan art.
