Chrissie Hynde was always interested in music. During her time in university she joined a band called 'Sat. Sun. Mat.' and also became fascinated with hippie counterculture. She started following eastern mysticism and became a vegetarian, before moving to Ohio in 1973.
Hynde began her professional career with an architectural firm but left shortly after joining. Then she came across the rock journalist, Nick Kent and landed a writing position at NME magazine. However, this was not the end of her struggling period. She attempted to start a band in France and also tried to get a work permit but upon failing to acquire anything permanent, she returned to Cleveland in 1975.
The next year, Chrissie Hynde went back to France once again to form a band and yet again upon failing to do so, she became part of another band called 'The Frenchies'. In late 1976, she responded to an advertisement in 'Melody Maker'. She got selected for a band that was named as '999 Jon Moss'. When this group failed to take off, Chrissie Hynde moved on to become the guitarist of the band 'Masters of the Backside'. She joined and left several other bands as well, and accompanied Mick Jone's band on its Britain Tour. She also performed as an independent guitarist on a number of gigs as well. Nevertheless, Chrissie Hynde still did not have what she really wanted - to be a part of a band and be part of all its gigs like a legitimate member.
In 1978, she recorded a demo tape and submitted it to Dave Hill, the owner of Real Records label. Hill was impressed with her abilities and began to manage her career. Chrissie Hynde tried once again to put together a band. She met bass guitarist, Pete Farndon and together with him, she formed her band. Guitarist, James Honeyman-Scott and multi-instrumentalist, Martin Chambers completed the lineup. Chrissie Hynde named her new band, as 'The Pretenders'.
The ensemble recorded a demo tape with songs like The Wait, Precious and the cover version of Stop Your Sobbing. Alongside it, they also started performing in the club circuit in Paris. Their single Stop Your Sobbing/ The Wait came out in January 1979 and reached the Top 30 in the UK. With the release of this single, the band started gaining attention and also received acclaim for their original and distinctive music. Later the same year, the band recorded their self-titled debut album which managed to hit the charts internationally owing to the success of the single, Brass in Pocket. In 1981, the Pretenders released an EP, which was followed by their sophomore album, "Pretenders II".
Although Chrissie Hynde and the band had begun their journey to stardom, the band had to undergo several lineup changes over the years. The band released eleven more albums with each record adding to their national and international fan following.
Four decades down the line, Chrissie Hynde still refuses to slow down. To make things more interesting, the star has released her debut solo album, "Stockholm", in June this year. In her upcoming concert, she will be featuring songs from this album as well as some of the fan's favorites. Make sure you do not miss the show.
