This report was first broadcast on BBC 6 Music, in March 2006.
“That was Picture This from Blondie, one of this year’s additions to the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame. They were inducted along with Black Sabbath, The Sex Pistols, Miles Davis, Lynrd Skynrd and the founders of A&M records, at a star-studded ceremony in Manhattan’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel. The Sex Pistols didn’t show, as promised, but the night’s big talking point was the ex-Blondie members who were left hanging by their former friends. Andrew Purcell was there for BBC 6 Music.”
