About Chrissie Hynde

American singer, songwriter, and guitarist,, Christine Ellen “Chrissie” Hynde has an estimated net worth of $12 million. She is best known as the leader of the rock/new wave band the Pretenders.

One of the few female punk rockers to reach mainstream success, Chrissie Hynde is the longtime leader of the group The Pretenders. Hynde is a child of the ’60s revolution: she was attending Kent State University in 1970 during the famous incident when National Guard troops opened fire on students protesting the Vietnam War. She moved to London and wrote record and band reviews for the New Musical Express and became involved in the growing punk rock scene.
