"At that time, my favourite record was Blondie’s first. Every one of those songs was indelibly etched on my soul, and I was totally in love with Deborah Harry.
So when Blondie came to town, we headed to the Tropicana for the party. They had a suite, and Debbie was in the front room. We started talking, and I was smitten, totally melting. In my delusional state, I thought, “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You might never see this woman again. You better make your move.” With complete earnestness, I said, “I know I haven’t known you that long, but will you marry me?”
She smiled and said, “That’s so kind of you to ask. I think you’re a great guy, but I don’t know if you know this - that guitar player I was playing with tonight, who’s back there in the bedroom… well, that’s my husband! We’re very happily married, and I really don’t have any room in my life for another man.” I was crushed.”
- Anthony Kiedis, ‘Scar Tissue’
