Christine Ellen Hynde was born on 7 September 1951
in Akron, Ohio, US. Happy 70 Chrissie! Forever young!
She formed world-famous pop/rock band the Pretenders in 1975 and became their primary singer-songwriter, guitarist and their gorgeous face. After all these years the band’s still going strong. So far they released 11 studio albums with Hate For Sale (2020)
as the most recent one.
Her flamboyance, her outspokenness, her huge pop songwriting skills
and her don’t mess with me rock chick girl appearance is still intact, she’s
just a little bit older. Coolness in motion.
Turn Up The Volume picked these
3 top Chrissie moments to celebrate
