Martin Chambers – September 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays
Drummer Martin Chambers, one of two surviving original members of the Pretenders, turns 61 years old on Sept. 4. Chambers joined up with Chrissie Hynde and company in 1978. After a string of hit albums and tours, Chambers left the group in the mid '80s, temporarily (and quite understandably) unable to cope with the tragic deaths of bandmates James Honeyman-Scott and Pete Farndon.
However, he would rejoin Hynde in 1994 and remains in charge of the group's tempos to this day.
