Portrait Night 4/5 (Chrissie Hynde)

Yikes! I’ve gone a whole week between #PortraitNight posts without a real, written blog post. Oh well, blame my daughter’s preschool being out last week for spring break. Tonight’s subject is rock-and-rollist Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders. I dig pretty much all the early Pretenders records, but I’m partial to the first two records with James Honeyman-Scott. “Bad Boys Get Spanked,” “Precious”–that’s all great stuff.

If you’d like to suggest a #PortraitNight subject, you can do so either via the comments section here, or via my Twitter.
