Hynde Snubs Hall Of Fame Honour
Veteran rocker CHRISSIE HYNDE has taken aim at the organisers who inducted her into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - insisting the honour fuels rivalry between musicians.
The Pretenders frontwoman was inducted with the group in 2005, but 57-year-old Hynde insists she had mixed feelings about accepting the accolade from high-powered music bosses.
She tells the New York Post, "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."
