Here’s the view from my hotel room in Leeds. As I frantically try to remember basic three chord songs, I recall the old adage:
If you don’t use it you lose it.
Bear with me girls! I was lost but now I’m found… almost.
See you soon.
A Year In The Life — Tchad Blake
10th Oct 2022
We’re pleased to reveal a special project by record producer Tchad Blake, which Chrissie has helped bring to life.
“During the plague I completely divested myself from social media & created a website regularly uploading these snaps to a private family & friends page where they seemed to strike a positive chord & even inspired a series of nine homemade music videos (Chrissie Hynde & James Walbourne ‘Dylan Lockdown Series’), which led to the music being released as an album “Standing In The Doorway - Chrissie Hynde Sings Bob Dylan”, which led to the idea for this book of snaps." – Tchad Blake
Tchad is a recording/mix engineer who lives in rural Wales with his wife Jacquie and two sons, Buck and Stan. Tchad has worked on various projects with Chrissie since 1990 including the albums “Alone”, "Packed” and “Standing In The Doorway”.
“I’m delighted to announce that I finally managed to talk him into compiling some images for this book, ‘A Year In The Life’.” – Chrissie Hynde
Tchad’s book is now available to buy here: A Year In The Life

Remember that old blues song, “if you’re ready for me I’m ready for you”? Well it’s almost showtime folks, and that IS the case.
I’m taking the His Lordship line-up on the road and we will be playing some of my all-time favourite songs: obscure Pretenders, some off the confusingly named ‘solo’ album, Stockholm, some new, unreleased material , and as I promised, not a greatest hit in the lot. (You’ve had 40 years to see those so if you missed it more fool you - the moment has passed).
We’ll be heading up north soon. Sorry we’re only playing 200 capacity venues, but that’s my choice. You must know by now that it’s all because the lady loves milk tray.
C u soon…….

Sign The Petition
I’ve just signed a petition calling on UK supermarkets to go plastic-free, and it would mean a lot to me if you’d add your name too!
From turtles entangled in six pack rings to whales with stomachs full of plastic bags, the effects of plastic pollution can be devastating.
UK supermarket Iceland has just announced its own-brand packaging is going plastic-free.
By ditching plastic packaging, supermarkets have the power to lead the way in dramatically reducing the amount of single-use plastic produced.
Please join me in calling on UK supermarkets to ditch throwaway plastic packaging.
