Chrissie Hynde's quotes

  • Look, as long as we can make records and sell enough so we can do some shows, that's all I want. You know what? I just want to play guitar and be in a band. Same as I always did.
  • I don't know any guitar player, any of the real greats, who don't rate Joni Mitchell up there with the best of them.
  • When I hear myself singing, I hear Iggy Pop and Jimi Hendrix. There's a conversational thing going on. I suppose it depends on which The Pretenders song you're listening to.
  • Every time people in bands start to think guitar music's over, it seems to come back. In my estimation there's nothing better than playing guitar and I think most guitar players would agree.
  • In popular music, rock music, there's not as much melody. I mean The Beatles were very melodic but a lot of it's very linear, so you get one line repeated over and over.
  • I don't know what to say about a lot of modern pop music or what's called R&B because it relies a lot on a visual sense that I don't relate to.
