Along with making rock and roll music Hynde seems to have lost none of her rock and roll spirit either. In the same interview she made her thoughts clear on ego-stroking rewards given out by the industry. “I fucking loathe the Grammys with a vengeance.” she noted. “The whole idea of it, I don’t understand it, I don’t respect it, I don’t get it at all. I think it’s bullshit.” She also revealed her somewhat scathing name for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (which The Pretenders were inducted to in 2005). “I call it the Rock and Roll Hall of Shit.” she said. “It’s everything that rock’n’roll isn’t. It sort of desecrates the name of rock’n’roll.”
Check out the latest music video, below, from The Pretenders for their track “Gotta Wait” (released back in February 2017), taken off their album Alone.
