Joan Jett on Chrissie Hynde

Posted By on Wed, Dec 6, 2006 at 3:24 PM

In honor of Chrissie Hynde's return to the Agora Sunday December 10, Scene talked to some local figures about Hydne's enduring influence over her hometown. We also talked to Joan Jett, but her comments didn't get in the story. Here's what one of the great females in rock has to say about the other: "Chrissie is one of those rare women rock artists who sustained a career with integrity over a long period of time. Her music is unique and wonderful. I can't say enough about my admiration for her work against mistreatment of animals. Like me, she is a vegetarian, something I further love about her." -- D.X. Ferris
