Did You Know?


"Blondie" lead singer and actress Debbie Harry's signature is tattooed on Cantwell's right shoulder. In 1995 for his birthday, Ms. Harry was invited to a NYC tattoo parlor, where she signed several autographs for John, one of which was tattooed on his arm. A section in Cathay Che's 1999 biography of Debbie, "Platinum Blonde", is devoted to this meeting.
