This week, I went to shoot a blast from the past. Devo and Blondie are on tour together. Blondie, with three original members opened the show with perfect versions of all their hits. Debbie Harry can still sing, and still looks great. Chris Stein plays some great guitar, and Clem Burke is still a powerful drummer.
Then Devo hit the stage. Looking like a group of accountants wearing funny suits and flower pots on their heads, with 4 out of 5 original members, they kicked ass and played all of their hits. During the encore, they broke out “Come Back Jonee” and Debbie Harry walked out on stage to throw roses into the audience and sing a little backup.
