hyndeWith her blunt fringe, heavy eyeliner and no-nonsense vocals, Hynde was a quintessential rocker fronting the Pretenders. The mother of two daughters—with the Kinks’ Ray Davies and Simple Minds’ Jim Kerr—went on to renown as a staunch vegetarian and animal-rights activist. Now 62, Hynde is back with rock attitude, especially on the feisty “Down the Wrong Way,” featuring Neil Young on guitar.
