Quote of the Day (Chrissie Hynde, on Hippies vs. Punks)

“[Punks] didn’t like hippies, because their parents were hippies. I was in the States during the hippie era and in England during the punk era. They were both anti-establishment—that’s what they had in common. But the hippies were smoking pot, which makes you complacent, and the complacency wasn’t what punk was about—it was about action.”—Singer-songwriter—and Pretenders leader—Chrissie Hynde quoted in Rob Tannenbaum, “Q and A: Chrissie Hynde,” Rolling Stone, June 19, 2014
