Pat Benatar rocked onto the music scene in 1979. She was the first female artist to appear on MTV when it premiered in 1981, and went on to win four consecutive Grammys for Best Rock Performance (Female). She paved the way for such female artists as Madonna, Sarah MacLachlan, Courtney Love and Tori Amos, but there's only one original, and she's back with a three-CD collection called Pat Benatar: Synchronistic Wanderings. Pat performed "We Belong" and "Strawberry Wine" from this CD.
Pat has been married to husband Neil Giraldo for 17 years, and they have two daughters, Haley, 15, and Hana, 5. Haley once hated everything about her family's rock-and-roll life, says Pat, but now has her own band called Glow. Mother and daughter plan to record a song together soon.
A bit of trivia: Joy was a teacher at Pat's high school when she was a student there, although they didn't know each other.
