3.0 out of 5 stars More errors?, 24 Mar. 2013
By 
This review is from: Blondie: Parallel Lives (Hardcover)
It's a reasonable read, but there are some really odd errors in this, as other reviewers have said. It states (p127) that the band appeared on Tony Wilson's "So It Goes". They didn't - the appearance was for Wilson's "What's On" spot as part of "Granada Reports". (The clip was later included in a compilation of *mostly* "So It Goes" material (called "The Way They Were") which is where the error comes from.)

Meanwhile - and this one is almost unbelievable - p166 says: "... despite the label's efforts, [Sunday Girl] failed to chart in the US." Er, "Sunday Girl" wasn't released in the US, which may explain why it didn't chart!

Additionally - though I am not familiar with the ins and outs of the Blondie predecessor group, The Stilettos - p48 says that, by October 1973, Rosie Ross had been replaced by Amanda Jones. So why do photos (e.g. on page 70b) in the book, which are after this time, refer to Rosie Ross, then? Surely one or the other is wrong?

You're right and there are numerous other problems... no sources for quotes, notable index omissions, photo caption mistakes etc.... Let's hope there's another edition which corrects these unfortunate errors.
