Pat and Neil,

Congratulations on 20 years of making people happy!!! It's hard to believe
that I could be so taken by one artist that after 20 years I still find all
the music inspiring and uplifting! There are times when I am searching for
something to help me get through a tough time or help me find new ways to
look at a difficult emotional situation and I find it so often in your music.
Other times a particular song with reach right in a grab me when I least
expect it, and put a wonderful memory or thought into my mind. Thank you both
for all the inspiration and pleasure you have given me for 20 years. Your
music just keeps getting better and better. I love you both.

Pat I want to thank you for 20 years of lovely Music I first saw you in your
Hit me with your Best Shot and I fell in Love with you and your music like
any 15 year old kid could. Your music has shaped my life and made me the
man I am today.

From: (Scott McQuillen)

Congratulations Pat and Neil on 20 years of good, quality
entertainment.Your music has touched so many of us and made a sometimes
difficult world a more enjoyable place to live. In a world of music that
is filled with musicians who often feel they are "too good for their
fans", you are there for us and I think that is absolutely awesome! Keep
up the great work and thank you for not being afraid to grow
artistically.I feel that change is necessary for the longevity of an
artist,especially in a world of music today that is mostly filled with
one hit wonders.Most of all,thank you for being truly unique and not
letting record companies cramp your creativity. All my love and respect
to you and your family and best of luck on a continuing,successful
career and much happiness to both of you.
Respectfully Yours,

Pat & Neil,
Thank-you! Those are two small words that when put
them together they mean so much. I know that you have touched so many
lives and brought forth happiness to so many people, yet you still seem
so down to earth. I really admire you for all you have done both as
parents (always putting your children first) and as musicians (making
time for your fans) I have loved your music for 20 years and plan to
continue to do so. My best friend went to see you live in 1991 and
although that particular concert was cancelled it was because of it that
we are married today. We are raising our three boys to know and love
your music. You truly are the picture of "True Love". You always show us
how much you love what you do and in turn we are so honored to support
you in your music in any way we can. So please keep rocking for as long
as you can and we will keep attending concerts for as long as we can.
Thanks so much for all you have done for me and the many other fans you
have earned throughout your career.
A fan for life,
Tracy Smothers

Pat and Neil,
Thanks for all the great music and memories you have given us over the last
20 years. You have never compromised your beliefs and principles while
continuing to record music that you truly wanted to do no matter what anyone
else ever thought. It is nice to see that most of your music had survived
the test of time and can still be enjoyed many years after it was initially
recorded. Thanks for all you have done for your fans. As a fan I think it is
nice to be acknowleged by the musicians who have given so much meaning and
pleasure to your lives through their music.
You deserve nothing but success and happiness in whatever you choose to do.
Best wishes for your future and thanks for continuing to tour and show
everyone that it's fun to rock and roll.

Love you guys,

The time: 17 years ago. The place: The Forum in Los Angeles. My sister made me go to a concert with her. "But mom I don't want to go" But little did I know that I'd never be the same again. It was that "Promises In The Dark" that did it for me. Precious Time was the first record I ever bought. I've listened to it at least a thousand times. Then you out did yourself with "True Love", now I've listened to that one even more. Pat, I wish you and your family only the best and never, ever stop touring. Like I always say, "Until you see her live, you can never experience the true effect of her voice" Take care and god bless.

Dear Pat and Neil,

First off, I would like to congratulate you both on 20 years in the music industry. You both have put alot of hard work and dedication into your career,and you should be very proud of yourselves.

I, like many of your fans,have been a follower of you for the entire 20 years. It all started when I heard my sister playing the album ITHOTN and I heard the song "Don't Let It Show". From that moment on,I was hooked!! That particular song I have adopted as my "theme song" and has gotten me thru so many difficult times in my life,and still holds true to this day. So many of your songs have had a major impact in my life that it almost seems as if you're writing ABOUT my life.

No words could ever begin to express the gratitude that I have for you and your music. All I can say is that with my whole heart I THANK YOU !! Everything you have done is VERY much appreciated!

I wish you both much continued success and happiness ! I hope you will always follow your heart and do what's best for you. YOU'RE ALL THAT MATTERS !!

Happy 20th Anniversary,Pat and Neil !!

With much love and gratitude,

I just want to congratulate Pat and Neil on 20 years of great music!!! Thank
you for "True Love," which has expanded the range of music that I now listen
to, and thank you for all the other music. Here's hoping for another 20
fantastic years where the music keeps getting better and better!

Congratulations Pat and Neil!! I have been inspired by your music for twenty
years (yes, all twenty). I can't believe its been that long. When I was a
teenager, Pat, your music helped me through a lot of tough times. You taught
me how to be a strong woman and I thank you for that. I also thank you for
never quitting. If you are doing a show anywhere near me I will always make
an effort to be there, even if its twenty years from now! Neil has inspired
me to learn to play guitar and I really enjoy it. Thank you both for being
so original.

Stay Cool,

Subject: 20 Yr. Anniversary!

Dear Pat and Neil,

The past 20 years would not be the same without your musical influences in
my life. I have been a great fan from the moment I first heard Heartbreaker
on the sands of Huntington Beach when I was not quite 14 years old. Over
the years I have gone through many trials and tribulations as anyone has.
But,with Neil's awesome music and your beautiful voice It seemed to make
those times a little better. Your music never gets old with me. I always
have at least two of your CD's in my changer. It seems as there is at least
one CD that always fits the mood I am in. I can't say that about any other
artist. That is why I am a Pat Benatar Fan!! Congratulations on your 20
year anniversary. I am very proud to be know as a fan of your music. I
hope we will be congratulating you in another 20 years. Your music is and
will always be, a part of my life.

Thank You,
In Love & Peace

I still remember the first time I heard "Heartbreaker" on the radio
twenty years ago. I was standing at my work station in my high school wood
shop class, wood file in hand, and didn't realize that I was totally
mesmerized and awestruck by the song until my teacher yelled, "Severson, quit
staring into space and get to work" I have been absolutely, 100% hooked ever
since. Thank you, Pat and Neil, for the passion and artistry with which you
imbue each piece of your work. Your music, your performances, and your
commitment to one another have inspired and sustained me over the years with
a constancy that has been unwavering. Please accept both my admiration and
appreciation for creating art that has always and will always have the power
to inspire me with joy. Rock on, my friends!

Dear Pat and Neil,

Since 12-years-old, when everyone in our family station-wagon erupted in song
as Hit Me with Your Best Shot came on the radio, I've been hooked. I remember
getting your then new album Precious Time as a Christmas gift and hearing Love
is a Battlefield on the radio for the very first time.

Your music and voice made a lasting impression on me. I've enjoyed you since
then and will always.

Pat and Neil,

How do I find the words to let you know how much you have helped me through
the years? I've been a fan since the beginning, and there is no other music
I listen to more than yours. I have seen you live several times, and every
time has been great!! I truly believe that without your song "Run between
the Raindrops", I wouldn't have made it though one the most difficult times
in my life. Thank you for always being there (thru your music) when I
needed your help to get me though whatever I was going though at the time.
I'm so glad to be a part of this fan club. This is my first Pat Fest, and I
can't wait!! I hope I will get a chance to talk with you both for a minute
or two. I have Neil's autograph from a celebrity softball game in 1990, and
in 1991 when you were doing an interview at KLOS with Bob Coburn, I brought
you balloons. I hope you remember the balloons. I wish you all the best,
and another 20 years of rockin'!! There's a whole generation of people that
don't know a lot about your music. Every chance I get, I tell them all
about you. I'm happy to say that I have helped to create quite a few fans.
If anyone tells me they don't know any of your songs, I show them they are
wrong. Once again, THANK YOU!!!!! I love you both.

Love ya,

And Lee Sarnoff (my boyfriend)
P.S. my boyfriend is a huge fan, and will also be at the fest with me. We
both are very excited about our trip to Vegas to see you. We were going to
go to Vegas just for the show, Then I heard about the fest, and knew I had
to be a part of that also. Can't wait!!!

Congratulations on surviving 20 years in the music business and still being able to hold your heads high.

Thanks for all of the great music!
