Discography and career highlights

  • Songwriter, producer, arranger and composer
  • Founding member of the group "Blondie"
  • 2006 inductee to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Celebrated keyboard player, synthesizer pioneer, (don't ask him if he can play guitar), can puddle along on bass, keeps a simple drumbeat, and can mask all personal failings with studio wizardry. Commands a studio.

Songwriter of three #1 hits over two decades, "Atomic", "Picture This" and "Maria".
