Since the late '70s, singer/guitarist/songwriter Chrissie Hynde has been the leader of one of rock's most widely beloved bands, the Pretenders. Born on September 7, 1951 in Akron, Ohio, Hynde was turned on to rock the same way zillions of others were in the '60s, via the British Invasion. 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. Despite numerous lineup changes ever since, Hynde has kept the Pretenders going. She released her solo debut, Fidelity!, in 2010. ~ Greg Prato
