THE PRETENDERS: CHRISSIE HYNDE WURDE 70 JAHRE ALT
- Sep 12, 2021
Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde turns 70 on September 7. She was part of the founding lineup in 1978 and is still the only remaining member from that time. Stylistically, the Pretenders were categorized as New Wave, but today they are more of a typically Rock band. In Great Britain, the Pretenders were extremely successful, especially in the 80s. Here they also landed a number one with their single "Brass In Pocket". In the USA, the band was able to establish itself in the top ten with its albums, at least in the first half of the eighties. In Germany, the Pretenders flew under the radar, reaching only number 45 with "Don't Get Me Wrong" in 1986.
