Pat Benatar

Pat Benatar is a four-time Grammy winning musician with six platinum and four gold albums to her credit. Singing such hit singles as “I Need A Lover”, “Heartbreaker”, “Fire And Ice”, “Treat Me Right”, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”, “Hell Is for Children”, “Shadows Of The Night”, and “Love Is a Battlefield”, Benatar is acknowledged as one of the leading female rock vocalists in the industry.

She was born in the neighborhood of Greenpoint in Brooklyn, New York City, New York on January 10, 1953 as Patricia Andrzejewski. She graduated from Lindenhurst High on Long Island in 1971. She married her lead guitarist, Neil “Spider” Geraldo, in 1982, and she has two children, named Haley and Hana.

In 1973, Benatar quit her job as a bank teller to pursue a singing career after being inspired by a Liza Minnelli concert she saw in Richmond. She got a job as a singing waitress at a flapper-esque nightclub named “The Roaring Twenties”, and got a gig singing in lounge band Coxon’s Army. They garnered enough attention to be the subject of a never-aired PBS special, and the band’s bassist, Roger Capps, would go on to be the original bass player for the Pat Benatar band.

This period also yielded Benatar’s first solo single – 1974’s “Day Gig” – until her eventual major label debut on Chrysalis Records in 1979. The song was released via Trace Records, and was both written and produced by Coxon’s Army band leader Phil Coxon.

Pat Benatar (born Patricia Mae Andrzejewski on January 10, 1953) is a four-time Grammy Award-winning American singer best known for hit songs like "Love Is a Battlefield" and "Hit Me with Your Best Shot".
Benatar is a top-selling artist according to the RIAA with 12.5 million certified units, including two RIAA-certified Multi-Platinum albums, five RIAA-certified Platinum albums, three RIAA-certified Gold albums, and 19 Top 40 singles to her credit.
Billboard Magazine ranked Benatar as the most successful female rock vocalist of all-time.
