Chrissie Hynde is one of the most iconic women in punk, she’s had hit after hit with her band the Pretenders and recently released her debut album Stockholm.
Next on Chrissie’s repertoire is her new biography Reckless. The book focuses on Chrissie’s late teens and twenties, giving a frank and witty insight into her life as a pretender. She looks back at her involvement in the local biker and drug scenes, she escaped – to Mexico, Canada, Paris and finally London where she caught the embryonic punk scene just in time not only to witness it first-hand, but more importantly to seize the opportunity to form her own band.
Knowing Chrissie and her gutsy character, this one is certainly a one to read this September.
