D80sV #137: The Pretenders - Middle Of The Road (Live Aid 1985)

 Daily 80's Video #137: After failing to find a quality official video for "Middle Of The Road," I went with this live performance of the song from Live Aid 1985. Very cool and very energetic! After the dismissal and passing of founding members Pete Farndon in 1982 and 1983, as well as the passing of legendary guitarist James Honeyman-Scott in 1982, Chrissie Hynde, along with the last founding member Martin Chambers, after piecing together a lineup to finish 1982, finalized a more permanent lineup with Robbie McIntosh and Malcolm Foster and released 1983's "Middle Of The Road," peaking at #19 on the US Charts. However, this lineup would also prove to be impermanent, as shortly after this performance, Chambers would also get the boot, leaving Chrissie Hynde the last original Pretender pretending.
