Pretenders

KITE Stage   Sunday   16:45

After forming in 1978, Pretenders were hailed as one of guitar-based rock music’s saviors during the chaotic post-punk period. Lead by Chrissie Hynde, with guitarist Honeyman-Scott still widely regarded as one of rock’s all-time greats, capable of unbelievably creative and ingenious rhythms and textures in his playing. Farndon and Chambers, meanwhile, formed a highly capable, organic rhythm section that allowed for a give-and-take cohesion among band members rarely seen in any style of rock music.
