Biography

With a voice that moved fluidly from a Blues growl to an operatic coloratura, and a catalogue of material built on dramatic power ballads, Pat Benatar was the quintessential female rock vocalist in the late 1970s and early 1980s, earning numerous Grammy awards and six platinum albums. In many respects, Benatar was simultaneously one of the most iconic yet reluctant rock stars of her time. Her powerhouse vocals would take her from thankless club gigs to the highest possible rotation on the fledgling MTV network, but her drama-free, shockingly normal lifestyle would keep her grounded. Though her emphatic delivery of such hits as "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," "Heartbreaker," Love is a Battlefield," and the controversial "Hell is for Children" presented an image of Benatar as an icon of self-possession and even sexual aggression, the course of her more than 30-year career was charted by hard work and devotion to her children and her long-time collaborator and husband, Neil Giraldo, moving firmly outside of the spotlight in her later years. Regardless of how normal a life she had led, at her peak, Benatar was the biggest female rocker on the planet who empowered many a young girl to dream of and achieve greater things.
