Chrissie Hynde, Outspoken ​Rocker

I was (and still am) a huge Pretenders fan, whose eponymous 1980 debut album was simply titled Pretenders (Play loud!), and is arguably the greatest first release in the history of rock and roll.

Apple Music-Day Three

1. It’s about the money. Never lose sight of this. Apple Music will only be a success if ninety days in, a great proportion of those kicking the tires pay to subscribe. And this is doubtful. Because most people are cheap and the only way you can compete with free is to provide a service…Read More
