Pat Benatar

Pat Benatar's polished mainstream pop/rock made her one of the more popular female vocalists of the early '80s. Although she came on like an arena rocker with her power chords, tough sexuality, and powerful vocals, her music was straight pop/rock underneath all the bluster. Born Patricia Andrzejewski on January 10, 1953, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the singer was raised in the nearby town of Lindenhurst on Long Island, New York. Benatar began singing regularly in the New York City area in the '70s, where she was discovered at the Catch a Rising Star club and signed by Chrysalis Records. A stellar band led by guitarist Neil Geraldo (who the singer would later marry), provided the perfect accompaniment that was able to effortlessly alternate between rockers and ballads. Benatar quickly established herself as one of rock's top vocalists, scoring a hit right off the bat with her debut album, 1979's In the Heat of the Night, which spawned such radio favorites as "Heartbreaker" and "I Need a Lover" (the latter of which was written by a then unknown John Mellencamp).

Benatar's sophomore effort, 1980's Crimes of Passion, more than delivered on the debut's promise and it's often considered to be the finest recording of her career. Spurred on by such classic rock radio standards as "Hit Me with Your Best Shot," "Treat Me Right," and "You Better Run," the album was certified platinum shortly after its release and Benatar became a certified arena headliner in the U.S. She also became one of the most-played artists during MTV's early days, received several Grammy Awards around this time, and continued to enjoy massive hits and sold-out tours throughout the early and mid-'80s. She released such albums as 1981's Precious Time, 1982's Get Nervous, 1983's Live from Earth, 1984's Tropico, 1985's Seven the Hard Way, and 1988's Wide Awake in Dreamland, plus the singles "Fire & Ice," "Promises in the Dark," "Shadows of the Night," "Love Is a Battlefield," "We Belong," and "Invincible." But by the end of the decade, it appeared that Benatar had fallen of the face of the Earth as the hits seemed to dry up.

Benatar opted to shift musical gears and issue an album of blues and R&B, 1991's True Love, which failed to return the singer to the top of the charts. She returned to her patented arena rock sound with such further studio releases as 1993's Gravity's Rainbow and 1997's Innamorata (although the latter was largely acoustic-based), and while the albums didn't exactly measure up to her earlier releases, both were solid efforts. The late '90s saw a pair of live archival releases hit record store shelves, 1998's 8-15-80 and 1999's The King Biscuit Flower Hour Live, in addition to countless hits collections (although the best of the bunch proved to be 1989's Best Shots, which remains a steady seller). The singer began touring again in the middle of the decade (after taking a five-year hiatus from the road), co-headlining shows with REO Speedwagon, Fleetwood Mac, the Steve Miller Band, and Styx. She also continued to dabble in acting, appearing in the ABC Afterschool Special Torn Between Two Fathers and on various sitcoms. In August 2003, Benatar returned to recording with Go (Vanguard), her first studio LP since 1997's Innamorata. The LP revisited the arena rock/MOR sound that had defined Benatar's career, and was accompanied by an extensive tour.

Benatar's next big project was the 2010 publication of her memoir, Between a Heart and a Rock Place. Following that, she and Neil Giraldo regularly toured, including a 35th Anniversary blow-out that began in 2014 and ran into 2015, a year that also saw a commemorative live CD/DVD release of the tour. ~ Greg Prato & Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Saw the 35th anniversary show and she can still bring it. Vocals were still powerful even though she had to drop an octave on some of the high parts and Neil's playing was sharp. In the heyday, I was a hardcore thrash/metal guy so I didn't pay much attention to her but several years ago, I rediscovered her and she is/was the best female rock vocalist of the era. Love is a Battlefield is an incredible song and a great showcase for her power. Today's singers could learn a lot from her.

I remember singing HeartBreaker in cafeteria in to a senior I had a crush on, because he said that I was too young for him, but, maybe when I was older, we could hang out. Really broke my heart when he died from a brain aneurism. I got sent home from school because I couldn't stop crying. Couldn't listen to song for many years without crying. Doug Briggs, I never forgot you...

Don't worry about being in the Hall of Fame. Great bands like Yes, Moody Blues, Jethro Tull, Steppenwolf, Iron Maiden, etc aren't in either. Most of the bands that are in are POP music. If I were a Rock n Roller, I would refuse the honor.
