Blondie in Asbury Park

July 7th, 1979

I went to see Blondie at Convention Hall in Asbury Park. It is the last time I am going to see them play. I had gotten myself a 3rd row ticket which was really good. But as luck would have it, there was some kid that could not take photos so he gave me his front row seat. So I threw a beach ball up to Debbie Harry but of course it hit Nigel instead. He was laughing alot from it. I kept screaming out for them to do "Rip Her to Shreds" and she pointed to me during the song since I've been wanting her to do it for the last few shows. Then she came over and played with my hair, just like Tommy Trask did. Before the show I saw Frank and Nigel in their limo and they waved to me. Then Nigel saw me in the front row and went and told Nigel and Clem. The show was fun but Blondie is no where as good as they used to be. And the rest of the band was kind of boring. And such a horrible crowd was there. No one even stood up and danced. Well what can I say, Blondie sold out and did it to themselves.
