LIFETIME INTIMATE PORTRAITS: WOMEN IN ROCK CD
|Liner Notes: Pat Benatar is one of the original girl-power rockers--her hard-rocking style and strong female perspective has colored
her work for 20 years. Born Patricia Andrzejewski in Brooklyn, New York, Pat trained as an opera singer but decided
rock was her world, though she'll occasionally sneak in an extended high vocal solo. In 1979 she released her first
album, In The Heat Of The Night, which contained the unforgettable rock rant "Heartbreaker." Married to her
producer and guitarist, Neil Geraldo, since 1982, Benatar has found a partner--in the truest sense--for life and work.
With numerous hits to their credit and songs covering such diverse subject matter as child abuse ("Hell Is For
Children") to the truest of loves ("We Belong"), the pair continue to work and tour together, family in tow. In 1997 she
addressed a sold-out concert audience at San Francisco's historic Fillmore: "People ask me why after 20 years I still
pick up my family and take them on the road. This is why . . . you guys." Included here is the song that's become
synonymous with her name and an anthem for anyone who's ever been down, but not out: "Hit Me With Your Best
Shot," from 1980's Crimes Of Passion. ||
