Chrissie Hynde: The Great Pretender

Lucy O'Brien, Guardian, The, 27 April 1999

CHRISSIE HYNDE, wild woman of rock, sits in a private members' club in London's Portman Square in a finely tailored pinstripe suit. Despite the elegance of the surroundings, she is as frank and unapologetic as ever. She still has the shaggy black hair, kohl-dark eyes and cutting humour.
