Acknowledged as the leading female rock vocalist of the late 70s and 80s, and now after 3 decades in Rock ‘n’ Roll, Pat Benatar is a bonifide living legend. With songs like Love Is a Battlefield, Hit Me with Your Best Shot, Heartbreaker, Promises In The Dark and We Belong, Pat emerged fearless and fighting and forged a path for other female rockstars around the world.
In 1979, Pat Benatar’s life was to change dramatically when she was introduced to a fiery and inspiring guartist named Neil Giraldo. He shared the singer’s passion and used his skills to help design the now renowned Benatar-sound. Their debut album In the Heart of the Night featured a feisty sass of Top 40 hits like Heartbreaker and a Giraldo-penned We Live for Love, which ultimately went platinum. The 1980s Crimes of Passion album was a Grammy winner, reaching quadruple platinum and giving Pat her first Top 10 hit with Hit Me with Your Best Shot.
In 1985, Benatar and Giraldo became proud parents of a baby girl, Haley. Together they have won 4 consecutive Grammy Awards between 1980 and 1983 and after 3 decades of entertaining audiences they remain a Rock ‘n’ Roll power house. Theirs is a chemistry that will undoubtedly be thrilling audiences forever.
