Reckless by Chrissie Hynde

DescriptionThis is a powerful memoir by the American musician Chrissie Hynde, a member of rock band The Pretenders. Chrissie doesn’t hold back in recalling why she had to leave America and then arriving in London just as the Punk Rock scene was developing. Inevitably there are stories of drug taking and hell raising with the band and then tragic loss of life.

The book is brutally honest and very sad in places. Hynde showed significant physical and mental resilience over the years. Nevertheless towards the end of the book she mentions her sadness in losing band members and a sense of responsibility.

The book was published on September 8, 2015 by Doubleday. Borne
