On The Pretenders

On The Pretenders

The Pretenders. Or are they?

In this world dominated by tribute acts, how do we know that The Pretenders ARE The Pretenders and not some pretenders pretending to be The Pretenders.

The Pretend Pretenders. Or: The Pretenderers.

Chrissie Hynde had better get her act together, stop guzzling chick peas and Quorn burgers and address this menace of pretend Pretenders for once and for all.

I suggest the following, elegant solution: C. Hynde renames her band "The Genuine Article". All other tribute bands are then free to call themselves The Pretenders, and the world of popular music is SAVED.

I am not mad.
