Happy 65th birthday today to one of the coolest and most unique personalities and voices in rock history- Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders who was born on 9/7/51. The Akron, Ohio native has recorded a timeless catalog with The Pretenders including a series of LPs in the early 80’s which sound as relevant today as they did back then. For the the past 35 plus years, as the Pretenders front-woman, Hynde has kept her band alive through ever-changing lineups, nine studio albums and the drug-related deaths of two founding members. Hynde and The Pretenders were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. Watch The Pretenders take on “Middle of the Road” live in 1985 from Detroit….
