Chrissie Hynde is a daughter of a part-time secretary and a Yellow Pages manager. She attended Firestone High School in her hometown Akron, and later went to Kent State University to study in their Art School. During her time at college, Chrissie became interested in vegetarianism, hippie counterculture, and Eastern mysticism.
Hynde was also very interested in UK music, so she moved to London in 1973, and found a job in an architectural firm but departed after eight months. Hynde liked the NME Rock magazine and landed a job there after meeting the rock journalist Nick Kent. Two years later, she tried to establish a band in France, before her returning to the USA (Cleveland) in 1975. Hynde went back to France in 1976 to form a group again, but was unsuccessful, and then joined The Frenchies as a singer. After failing to form a band with Mick Jones from The Clash, she joined the Masters of the Backside as a guitarist in 1977. Chrissie also spent a short time with Johnny Moped in 1977, and The Moors Murderers in 1978 before finally forming her band.

Chrissie met Pete Farndon in the spring of 1978 and selected James Honeyman-Scott and Martin Chambers to form The Pretenders, and they released their first single – “Brass in Pocket” – in 1979. The Pretenders have released 11 albums in total, and sold millions of copies worldwide which has significantly increased Chrissie Hynde’s net worth.

Hynde has frequently collaborated with other musicians, including a duet with INXS in 1993, with Frank Sinatra in 1994 on his album “Duets II”, and with Neneh Cherry and Cher in “Love Can Build a Bridge” in 1995. However, her most famous collaboration with another artist was in 1985 when she and UB40 recorded a cover for Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe”. The other associated performances were with Emmylou Harris in 1998, Cheryl Crow in 1999, Ringo Starr in 2005, plus many others. The Pretenders were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, along with U2.

In her personal life, Chrissie Hynde has a daughter, Natalie – with Ray Davies of The Kinks – born in 1983,. She later married Jim Kerr, the frontman of Simple Minds, in 1985, andwith him has another daughter, Yasmin.

Quotes

#Quote
1When I hear myself singing, I hear Iggy Pop and Jimi Hendrix. There's a conversational thing going on. I suppose it depends on which The Pretenders song you're listening to.
2I don't know any guitar player, any of the real greats, who don't rate Joni Mitchell up there with the best of them.
3Look, as long as we can make records and sell enough so we can do some shows, that's all I want. You know what? I just want to play guitar and be in a band. Same as I always did.
