Blondie star Debbie Harry has revealed she was attacked before she found fame.
Debbie Harry's ''instincts'' saved her from disaster.
The 69-year-old singer-songwriter, who's the lead singer of the new wave and punk rock band Blondie, has revealed she narrowly avoided personal tragedy before she found fame.
She recalled: ''It was two or three in the morning and I couldn't find a cab. A car kept coming round and offering me a ride, so I accepted. Once in the car I noticed there were no door handles on the inside, which made me wary.
''I don't know how, but I managed to put my hand through the window and open the door from the outside.''
Harry said the driver swerved to stop her escaping from the vehicle but that gave her the momentum to hurl herself from the moving car.
The entertainer was shaken by the incident, but didn't think a massive amount about it after getting over the initial shock of being attacked.
Years later, however, she saw the driver on the news - and it was Ted Bundy, the serial killer who confessed to murdering at least 30 women.
She told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper: ''I always say my instincts saved me.''
