The Pretenders 1984 Learning To Crawl Tour Album Cover Pinback Button Pin No. 2:
This is an Original Stickback Button from the Pretenders 1984 'Learning To Crawl' Tour and Album. The band's third studio record was released during a hiatus when original members James Honeyman-Scott and Pete Farndon both died. Chrissie Hynde and Martin Chambers originally recruited Rockpile's Billy Bremner and Big Country's Tony Butler as stand-ins on guitar and bass. That foursome recorded 'Back on the Chain Gang' and 'My City Was Gone'. Finally, Malcolm Foster and Robbie McIntosh were hired as permanent replacements. Along with Hynde and Chambers, they finished the recording including the smash hit 'Middle of the Road'. It is Hynde, Chambers, Foster and McIntosh who appear on the album cover and in red silhouette on this previously owned Pin. The button measures 1 1/4 inches in diameter and is in Good Condition for its Age.
