Last night, as part of Pledge Week, Channel 13 in NY ran a recording of a live performance by The Pretenders.

The show was in 2010 or 2011 and recorded in London in front of a packed theater crowd.

It was quite enjoyable for me as someone who liked The Pretenders in 1980s to the point that I still love hearing many of their standards.

I also have to say they were in fine form. Chrissie Hynde, who is over 60 years old, still commands the stage, she has stayed in great physical condition, and her voice seemed unchanged from her heyday almost 30 years ago.

One thing I have to note, though. She had so much mascara around her eyes that it was streaming down her face as it mixed with the sweat she worked up with her high-energy performance. It made her look almost like Alice Cooper. And the weird thing is, she still has her long black bangs, so you can barely see her eyes anyway.

Enough of my fashion review. It was good to see an old rocker still rocking.
