Blondie star Deborah Harry wishes she was more money conscious when the Call Me hitmakers first made it big - because her heavy spending cost her a fortune and a home.
The punk icon, now 66, went through millions in her heyday and now regrets not being more careful with her cash.
Her wake-up call came in the early 1990s when she discovered she owed "the tax man" millions.
She tells the Globe, "I had to sell our house and the rest of the band was left with nothing."
But she confesses she should have seen it coming: "We knew we didn't have a handle on it (cash) and knew that cash was flying away into nowhere.
"I should have done a crash course in accounting."
