Coolness is Hynde
I love Chrissie Hynde. I have to thank my friend Barbara (know as Bambie in HS) for influencing me with all things Pretenders, the Clash, the Jam, and even more pop music as the Go Go's and Duran Duran. Without her, I might still be rockin' out to Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Doors... Only. Nothing wrong with those amazing Rock bands, but in 1981, getting something new and fresh was in dire need. And I absorbed it every note and wale to accompany it. Even today, I listen to everything. Everything good.
Anyhow, Hynde is the real thing. As a young teenager into my 20's, a woman like Chrissie; cool, talented, vocals to kill, was something to look up to. And I believe she still is.
