One of rocks legendary women
Christine Ellen "Chrissie" Hynde - born
September 7, 1951 in Akron, Ohio.
Yep, 1951! Chrissie as most know was one of
the band members in the rock/new wave group
the Pretenders. One of my favorite bands in
the 80's which dates me...yesssss.
Legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist.
According to Wikipedia..........
Hynde is the daughter of a part-time secretary
and a Yellow Pages manager.
She graduated from Firestone High School
in Akron, Ohio. She stated that "I was never too
interested in high school. I mean,
I never went to a dance, I never went out on a date,
I never went steady. It became pretty awful
for me. Except, of course, I could go see bands,
and that was the kick. I used to go to
Cleveland just to see any band. So I was in love a
lot of the time, but mostly with guys in bands
that I had never met. For me, knowing that
Brian Jones was out there, and later that
Iggy Pop was out there, made it kind of
hard for me to get too interested in the
guys that were around me. I had,
uh, bigger things in mind."
Chrissie's story is pretty interesting.
Look her up on Wikipedia read the whole story.
Truly fascinating life! What intrigues me is
even though she has aged she is
60 years old now and still looks like
she can rock your socks off!
I love that she always had her "look".
Didn't matter what fashions were
happening...she rocked her own look.
Chrissie still has the same style she
started out with and can pull it off.
Too many women give up and
start dressing like their friends and what
so-called fashion for their
age says they should wear. I say if
you can still rock it, do it. Don't
give up and in. You are only as young
as you want to feel. Who cares
about the laugh lines or the grey hair
(you can color that!).The great thing
about growing older...is you are much
wiser and confident....this
older gal (me) isn't gonna
give up....not for a long time!
Now check out some of Chrissie's
styles through the years........

Thanks Chrissie for all the great years of
music and style you have contributed!
