Chris' Bio

Although Debbie Harry received the lion’s share of attention during Blondie’s reign, guitarist Chris Stein is often credited with helping to shape the group’s sound as he wrote (or co-wrote) most of the group’s best-known songs. Stein has also guested on other artist’s recordings over the years, including Dee Dee Ramone’s lone release under his rap alter ego, Dee Dee King (1988’s Standing in the Spotlight), and has composed music for such movies/TV shows as Tales from the Darkside, Wild Style, Intimate Stranger, Polyester, and Union City. A longtime photographer, some of Stein’s images have been used as album artwork by Dramarama and Lydia Lunch.
