Harry Expected Much Worse From Hall Of Fame Intruders

BLONDIE star DEBORAH HARRY was relieved her Rock + Roll Hall of Fame showdown with ex-bandmates GARY VALENTINE, NIGEL HARRISON and FRANK INFANTE amounted to a brief war of words - because she expected much worse. The HEART OF GLASS singer was furious when Harrison and Infante, who unsuccessfully sued Harry and bandmates CHRIS STEIN and CLEM BURKE when they were left out of reunion plans in 1999, attempted to join the group's performance at the Hall Of Fame induction ceremony last night (13MAR06). The rockers charged the stage, demanding their input in Blondie was recognised at the event, but Harry discarded her ex-bandmates with a brief exchange of words, prompting them to leave. And Harry now reveals she was shocked with the nerve of her ex-bandmates, considering they've been trying to sue her again for the past three years. She says, "I expected much worse... but I don't know if there's a way to handle a situation like that. "There's been bad feeling for a long time. The three of them have been suing us for three years." After the event, Harry's bandmate and former lover CHRIS STEIN admitted he was appalled by his former friends' actions at the induction ceremony. He said, "They've sued us and they wrote themselves out of the band's history as far as I'm concerned."
