Pretenders- Learning to Crawl 40th Anniversary- Chrissie Hynde

Forty years ago, after two highly-acclaimed full albums plus an EP, the Pretenders led by American singer/co-writer Chrissie Hynde, had fired their bass player because of drug abuse, only to have their guitarist/co-writer overdose and die two days later. American ex-pat Chrissie Hynde pulls no punches with the life-and-death story, times two, behind one of the Eighties’ great comeback albums “Learning to Crawl” in this particularly tough yet tender classic rock interview about the January 1984 Pretenders effort.

And it’s not as if Billy Joel had not been a prolific recording singer/songwriter or an infrequent touring musician prior to his fifth album, “The Stranger”, in Fall 1977.
