The veteran rock star has doubts about the band's 2005 award
The Pretenders‘ Chrissie Hynde has slammed the idea of the bands induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, saying that music should not be turned into “sports”.
The famously outspoken singer, speaking to the New York Post says: “I hate to be a spoilsport, but I don’t like the way the music industry turns the music world into sports, as if it’s competitive. I mean, if someone’s in, then who’s not in?
“You can’t say how much music has affected or moved someone. It’s just too personal. So I didn’t feel too great about it.”
