Car Crashes Into Blondie Recording Session; "Suzy and Jeffrey" Results


In 1980, Blondie was recording at Western Recorders on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood when a car came crashing through the studio wall. A guy named Jeff was having an argument with his girlfriend Sue, and he lost control of the car and rammed it through the wall.

Nobody was hurt, according to KROQ deejay and longtime scene person Rodney BIngenheimer, but the incident prompted Blondie to write a song, "Suzy and Jeffrey," which was the non-LP flip side of "The Tide Is High" (from the 1980 album Autoamerican).
