Chrissie Hynde had a daughter Natalie Ray in 1983 with Ray Davies of The Kinks (a cover version of the Davies song "Stop Your Sobbing" had been an early hit for the Pretenders, and Hynde met Davies several years later, a meeting which bloomed into a long-term relationship).

Hynde became friendly with such up and coming punk rockers as the Sex Pistols and the Clash (Hynde almost formed a group with members of the latter band), and its back-to-basics approach inspired her to form her own punk outfit.
By the late '70s, Hynde had accomplished her goal, as the original Pretenders lineup was in place -- Hynde on vocals/guitar, bassist Pete Farndon, guitarist James Honeyman-Scott, and drummer Martin Chambers.
Due to Hynde's vast rock & roll knowledge, the Pretenders were much more than just a punk band -- they were never afraid to let other styles seep into their own sound, making their 1980 self-titled debut one of rock's greatest all-time classics.

 Blogcritics.org: Chrissie Hynde, Bush Critic
Us old folk remember when Chrissie Hynde was involved in a fake punk band called The Moors Murderers back in 1977, so I think you can assume that her desire to shock (while playing fairly standard rock music) is nothing new.
Reading the actual comments, I've gotta agree that Hynde comes across pretty idiotic (though no more or less dumb than a lot of would-be punkers have in beer-soaked rant mode), and she deserves to be called on it.
Chrissy used to be one hell of a great rocker, if she put the smae kind of energy back into her music as she does into her rants, her albums would still be worth buying.

For one thing, the contrast of Chrissie Hynde's too-cool-for-words rock-star attitude with Crowe and McLachlan's down-to-earth feel-good pop worked perfectly, lending the show a much-needed balance of Cruella de Vil and Cinderella.
Given the fact that all three artists could easily have headlined their own summer tour but chose to do it together is a testament to female unity in a business dominated by egos.
Of all the performers on Tuesday's bill, Chrissie Hynde deserves the most credit, if not for being one of the earliest female rockers to reach mainstream success, then for surviving the burnout syndrome without a scratch as well.

 XTC Forum - Chrissie Hynde
On the Kinks mailing list, where Hynde dislike is sort of the guilty pleasure of many, there is some flak going on about how she had made some anti-American comments, or rather, in her NY concert said, "Let's hear it for the Americans all over the world" (big applause) "You're all going to die".
This is now such a fundamental part of human life that it would be 'inhumane' to deny free speech to anyone...including Chrissie Hynde (who I rather like anyway!).
Although, I think the specific Hynde coup was her recording "I Go To Sleep" in a regular way before the Kinks ever did.
