First, here’s wishing a very happy belated birthday to Chrissie Hynde, who turned 62 on Saturday, born in Akron, Ohio on September 7, 1951.

But it’s her daughter that’s making the news headlines these days for participating in a public protest.

Chrissie and Ray Davies’ daughter, Natalie Hynde, was arrested on July 13th after gluing her hands to those of her partner, Simon Medhurst, at the entrance of a proposed gas drilling site in Sussex, England.

But according to, Natalie has been given the green light to continue her protests against fracking in south-east England after magistrates eased her strict bail conditions.

As the saying goes, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Chrissie is no stranger, of course, to speaking out on behalf of what she believes in, being a big animal rights advocate.

Here she is with two beautiful cows on a book launch photocall for “Cows And The Earth: A Story Of Kinder Dairy Farming”:

Don’t worry cows, Chrissie will always stand by you. :-)
