Chrissie Hynde

 

 

Chrissie Hynde, born September 7 1951 in Akron, Ohio, is an American musician who is best known as a founding member of the rock band The Pretenders. She has also released a number of hits with other musicians including Frank Sinatra and UB40. Hynde and The Pretenders were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.

Chrissie Hynde moved to London in 1973, and after a period at NME, worked in London with Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood at their punk-themed clothing store, SEX. After a number of spells in other bands, in 1978, she formed her own band, The Pretenders, with the late Pete Farndon, the late James Honeyman-Scott and Martin Chambers.

As singer, songwriter and guitarist, she has been the only constant member of the band throughout its history. The Pretenders produced numerous hit songs including Brass in Pocket, Back on the Chain Gang and Don't Get Me Wrong; as well as 1994's I'll Stand by You.

Hynde issued her first solo album Stockholm in 2014 and published her autobiography, Reckless: My Life as a Pretender in 2015.
