The Pretenders

The Pretenders are an English-American rock band formed in Hereford, England, in March 1978. The original band was formed by Chrissie Hynde who was the main songwriter, lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist and included James Honeyman-Scott (lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), Pete Farndon (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Martin Chambers (drums, backing vocals, percussion). Following the unfortunate deaths of Honeyman-Scott and Farndon the band experienced numerous subsequent personnel changes, with Chrissie Hynde as the only consistent member, and Chambers returning after an absence of several years.

Hynde launched a solo career in 2014, and after several years without performing The Pretenders are taking to the road again in 2017.

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, and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
