People were taking turns doing their Bob Dylan impersonations at the Calvert School yesterday.Why?Because the night before they'd winced, laughed, and held their stunned breath as Mr. Dylan did his Dylan impersonation on the 10th anniversary special of the "David Letterman Show.""The first thing people said when they came to work was: 'Did you watch Letterman?' and then everybody did their Dylan impression," said Kim Siriporn, a singer who works in the Calvert School business office. "I thought: 'It's time to put Bob out to pasture . . . somebody should really put him out of his misery."

Chrissie Hynde, arms crossed at the wrist and hands in fingerless black lace gloves, seems untouchable. Her eyes, rimmed in heavy black eyeliner, are barely visible under her dark bangs, but they're fixed directly on the camera. Standing with her three band mates on the cover of the 1980 Pretenders debut, Hynde, in a stylish red leather jacket with an upturned collar, looks tough. Nothing about the image seems affected. Her presence is so strong, in fact, she practically obliterates the unassuming-looking guys around her. The same can be said about the classic music inside: Hynde's snarling vocals and razor-sharp lyrics crackle with sass, wit and humor.

It would probably be overstating things to suggest that revenge was the main thing John Lydon had in mind when he wrote his memoir of the Sex Pistols -- but not by much.After all, the Sex Pistols' saga has been hashed over from every imaginable angle. There have been music histories, such as Jon Savage's award-winning "England's Dreaming," cultural analyses along the lines of Greil Marcus' wide-ranging and impenetrable "Lipstick Traces," even a few films, like Alex Cox's "Sid & Nancy." But none of them, in Lydon's view, came close to getting the story straight.

There was a time, not very long ago, when being thrilled at the prospect of a Burt Bacharach concert was tantamount to confessing to utter fogeyism.Granted, the man wrote some great songs: "Do You Know the Way to San Jose." "I'll Never Fall in Love Again." "(They Long to Be) Close to You." "Promises Promises." "Walk On By." "I Say a Little Prayer." "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me." "This Guy's In Love with You." His list of hits could be a Top-40 in itself.Even so, it would be hard to imagine an all-star special like "Bacharach: One Amazing Night" (which airs tomorrowon TNT)

Chrissie Hynde is afraid some people might have the wrong idea about her. She's worried that they might have heard stories about her being a hard-nosed, domineering control freak -- or, worse, taken them as fact.They're not. The leader of the Pretenders may be a lot of things -- feisty, plain-spoken, irreverent, even politically incorrect -- but a control freak? Not hardly."I don't want to control my life, I want my life to control me," she says, over the phone from the New York offices of her record company.

Brad Paisley -- 5th Gear (Arista Nashville) His first four albums (plus a Christmas set) deservedly established Brad Paisley as one of Nashville's leading young lights. Maybe that's why his new one is a bit of a disappointment. 5th Gear is a pleasant enough affair, and it serves up plenty more hot guitar from this gifted picker. The first single, "Ticks," shows Paisley at his clever best: He manages to deliver the come-on "I'd like to check you for ticks" and still retain his boy-next-door charm.

If you spent Saturday night watching the Concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on HBO, and found yourself wishing you were in Cleveland, I have good news: You were better off where you were.True, you folks at home missed out on many of the things we in the stadium experienced during the 6 hour, 45 minute concert. It would be hard to imagine, for instance, that the small screen adequately conveyed the ecstasy that swept the crowd as lTC Bruce Springsteen and the E St. Band launched into "Shake, Rattle & Roll," or the irony-proof local pride that greeted Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders as she sang her pre-urban renewal anthem, "My City Was Gone."
