Talk Of The Town
One of the finest songs from the Pretenders, featuring the incomparable vocals of Chrissie Hynde. This 1980 video is of the original band lineup. In 1982 lead guitarist James Honeyman-Scott died from cocaine abuse. The same year bassist Pete Farndon was fired by the other band members for his out of control drug habits and he died shortly thereafter of an overdose. Chrissie, along with drummer Martin Chambers, goes on.
