The Pretenders
Season 7  |  Episode 3  |  Smooth/Arts  |  March 6, 2018

The Pretenders, originally three Englishmen and an American woman, emerged at the close of the '70s as one of the new wave's most commercially successful groups. Its focal point was Chrissie Hynde, the band's songwriter, lead singer, and rhythm guitarist, whose tough songs and stage persona put feminist self-assertion into her own distinctive hard rock. Leading music critics cast fresh light on the career of the Pretenders.
