JP, Chrissie & the Fairground Boys

First, they won't be playing any Pretenders songs. Second, Chrissie Hynde (59) is apparently NOT boning JP Jones (31), the Welsh cutie with whom she recorded Fidelity, an album about their not-quite love affair across a 28-year age gap. "I found my perfect lover, but he'll never share my bed," she sings, not wasting any time complaining that this generally isn't a problem when the genders are reversed. The songwriting ranges from the really damn good ("Your Fairground") to the embarrassing ("Courage"), but Chrissie makes it all work with her sexy growling, whining, and cooing. Personally I think JP is nuts not to dive for that brass in her pocket. With Amy Correia, Cobirds Unite. DAVID STOESZ
