Jimmy Destri Rides Again

JIMMY DESTRI OF BLONDIE FORMS NEW BAND

Founding member, keyboardist and genius song writer for Blondie, Jimmy Destri has formed a new band. No reunions, just a brand spanking new band.

Destri has been out of the scene for a while. After penning Blondies last #1 "Maria" in 1998, Destri left the band in 2004 due to his heart not being in it anymore. Destri explains what happened next " So I did what any self-respecting punk rocker would do. I became a rabid cocaine addict and licked my wounds.”

After a lengthy period of temperance and a stint counselling drug users, the need to make music washed over him again. “When Evan Taylor (one of Destri’s new band mates) expressed interest in getting together a band that performed my material, I was very hesitant. They were more than enthusiastic. After some wearing down, we started to rehearse and just all clicked. “

Destri hasn't given much away as to what the new band " Jimmy Destri and The Sound Grenade" will sound like. According to Destri " Something loud." And according to a fan " “There is something hair raising about hearing some of those solos ingrained in your brain, live. Even his new music is signature Destri.”

Lucky New Yorkers can catch the debut show for Jimmy Destri and The Sound Grenade on February 25th at Joes Pub 425 Lafayette St New York, NY 10001 (212) 539-8770. Purchase tickets here;
