Chrissie Hynde: Articulate Rock 'n Roll Woman
I saw the Pretenders open for the Who in St. Louis back in April, 1980. Sadly, there was a lot of booing and hooting from a crowd impatient for Daltrey/Townshend, though the performance was strong.
I seem to remember Bob Dylan once (long ago) saying of Chrissie that she should listen to some country music, though I can’t find a reference.
Chrissie Hynde is awesome -- and articulate, as you point out. :)
