Rock and Roll goddess Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders is 60 today. I saw her perform last year with her latest band JP Chrissie and the Boys. She looks great and when you hear her voice in person, you can’t help but melt a little bit. A lot of people are turned off by her politics, but I’ve learned to separate the person from the music – and I recommend you do too. You’ll be disappointed less.
Also born today: actors Corbin Bernsen and John Philip Law, actress Julie Kavner, singers Gloria Gaynor and Buddy Holly, director Elia Kazan, folk artist Grandma Moses and Queen Elizabeth I.
