Stevie Nicks and The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde might as well have been from different planets when they each came to public attention in the 1970s. Arizona sorceress-in-waiting Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham rejuvenated Fleetwood Mac when they joined in 1975, transforming the creaky British blues warhorse into a bastion of West Coast soft rock. At the same time, Ohio wild child Hynde was in Europe hanging out with such proto-punks as Johnny Thunders and Sid Vicious before finally starting her own band, The Pretenders. Yet for all the ferocity of early Pretenders blasts like “The Wait” and “Precious,” Hynde revealed her pure-pop instincts early on with such melodic tunes as “Kid” and a cover of The Kinks’ “Stop Your Sobbing.” On the current tour, Nicks and Hynde even harmonize like long-lost sisters on “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”
