An Overview of Pat's Musical Career
1977 -- Pat Benatar is discovered by Chrysalis Records&piratecom65533; talent scouts while singing in cabaret at New York's Catch A Rising Star club. She is immediately signed by the label. During this same year, she recruits Neil Giraldo (ex-Derringer), who assembles a backing band for the recording of Benatar's debut album, In The Heat of the Night.
1980 -- In The Heat of the Night reaches piratecom12 on the U.S. charts, with her first single, "Heartbreaker," reaching piratecom23. The album attains multi-platinum status. Two subsequent singles -- the Neil Giraldo- penned, "We Live For Love," and "You Better Run" (a song originally done by The Young Rascals in 1966) -- also escalated up the charts.
From early career In August, Benatar released her second album, Crimes of Passion produced by Keith Olsen. Shortly thereafter, the single, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," reaches piratecom9 on the charts, and becomes a million-seller.
1981 -- Crimes of Passion hits piratecom2 early in the year, and Pat is recognized by garnering her first Grammy for the "Best Rock Vocal Performance Female," at the 23rd Annual Grammy Awards in February of that year. This marked the first of four consecutive Grammy's she received for that category. Another single from the album, "Treat Me Right," would reach considerable chart success as well. The album, itself, achieves multi-platinum sales.
In August, Precious Time is released, and tops the U.S. charts, becoming her first album to do so. Two singles from the album -- "Fire and Ice" and "Promises In The Dark" -- assist in propelling it to the top. Precious Time exceeds the platinum-sales plateau.
1982 -- In February, Pat marries guitarist/producer/songwriter Neil Giraldo in Maui. In November, she releases her fourth effort, Get Nervous, which was produced by Neil Giraldo (who concentrates on guitar for the album) and Peter Coleman. The single from the album, "Shadows Of The Night," goes top 15, while the album itself peaks at piratecom4 early in January, 1983, and eventually sells over a million copies. It's the fourth consecutive album for Benatar to do so.
1983 -- The singles from Get Nervous -- "Little Too Late" and "Looking For A Stranger" -- are released, while Benatar's first performance album, Live From Earth, is released later in year. Live From Earth is recorded in France and California during Benatar's U.S. and European tours of 1982 and 1983. At the end of the year, the single, "Love Is A Battlefield," aided by the Bob Giraldi-directed video, propels her back to the top of the charts as it hits piratecom5, while Live From Earth makes piratecom13.
1984 -- Pat collects her fourth consecutive Grammy for "Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female" at the 26th Annual Grammy Awards (this time, for "Love Is A Battlefield").
1985 -- Tropico reaches piratecom14 in the U.S. charts, and spawns the top five single, "We Belong," Hot on the heels of the platinum-selling Tropico, Seven The Hard Way is released in December and receives considerable acclaim, reaching piratecom26 in the U.S. charts. Also included is the top ten single, "Invincible," which was the theme for the Helen Slater-starring film, Legend of Billie Jean. Also in December of '85, Pat participates in the recording of "Sun City" for Artists United Against Apartheid, which comprised a total of 50 artists.
Pat in red 1986 -- The singles from "Seven The Hard Way" -- "Sex As A Weapon" and "Le Bel Age" -- are both released early in year, reaching piratecom28 and piratecom54, respectively, in the singles charts.

1993 -- Gravity's Rainbow -- which is produced by Neil Giraldo and Don Gehman (of R.E.M. and John Mellencamp fame) -- is released. All songs from the release are written or co-written by Giraldo as well. From the dub echoes of "Everybody Lay Down," to the shuffling bar blues of "Crazy" (featuring Giraldo's Hendrix-influenced Wah-Wah guitar), Pat continued to redefine her sound in a 90's context.
1994 -- "All Fired Up: The Very Best of Pat Benatar" is released as a two-CD set. The compilation set features an array of Benatar hits, including those from her most recent albums.
1995 -- First major tour in five years to occur over the summer with REO Speedwagon and Fleetwood Mac. Prior to this U.S. trek, Pat takes her band to Japan and Australia, where she performed in front of enthusiastic, sold-out crowds that anxiously await her forthcoming projects. The response to not only her well-known hits, but her new material as well, inspire Pat to gear up for an upcoming release.
Pat at the Fillmore, 1998 1996 -- 1995's enthusiasm for touring spilled over into 1996, finding Pat and Band on a major summer tour with the Steve Miller Band. She continued to hit us with some of her best shots as well as refining some of her new material in a live setting. New songs such as "River of Love" and "Only You" were received with as much audience enthusiasm as the "hits".
1997 -- Pat signed with a new record company, CMC International, early in the year. Her first original album in four years, Innamorata, was released as Pat began a summer tour with Styx. The summer tour was quickly followed by a fall solo club tour further promoting the album. The more intimate setting is appreciated by the audience as a chance to get closer to the music and the artist.
1998 -- 8-15-80, an album of live recordings from the Old Waldorf in San Francisco, was released.
1999 -- Pat and Neil dug into their collection of private material to compile Synchronistic Wanderings, a 3 CD collection spanning their entire career and including previously unreleased live recordings and outtakes. Pat and Neil completed their 20th Anniversary Tour of the US this year.
2001 -- Christmas in America was released during the 2001 holiday season.
2002 -- In the summer of this year, Pat and Neil released their "Summer Vacation Live" CD sound track and "Summer Vacation Live" DVD, which included an innovative digital video tourbook. The DVD captured a 90 minute concert filmed at the Grove Theater in Anaheim, CA which debuted four new songs. 2003 -- After 5 years in the making, a new album of original material, Go, was released at the end of the summer tour under the Bel Chiasso label.
2004 -- Pat and Neil have toured every year since 1995, doing what they like to do best: performing rock and roll music. Pat has found a unique balance between family and career. Twenty five years after starting her career, Pat and the band plan to continue performing
Pat Benatar's polished mainstream pop/rock made her one of the more popular female vocalists of the early '80s. Although she came on like an arena rocker with her power chords, tough sexuality, and powerful vocals, her music was straight pop/rock underneath all the bluster. Born Patricia Andrzejewski on January 10, 1953, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the singer was raised in the nearby town of Lindenhurst on Long Island, NY. Benatar began singing regularly in the New York City area by the '70s, where she was discovered at the Catch a Rising Star club and signed by Chrysalis Records. Backed by a stellar band led by guitarist Neil Geraldo (who the singer would later marry) that provided the perfect accompaniment that was able to effortlessly alternate between rockers and ballads. Benatar quickly established herself as one of rock's top vocalists, scoring a hit right of the bat with her debut album, 1979's In the Heat of the Night, which spawned such radio favorites as "Heartbreaker" and "I Need a Lover" (the latter of which was written by a then-unknown John Mellencamp).
Benatar's sophomore effort, 1980's Crimes of Passion, more than delivered on the debut's promise and it's often considered to be the finest recording of her career. Spurred on by such classic rock radio standards as "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," "Treat Me Right," and "You Better Run," the album was certified platinum shortly after its release and Benatar became a certified arena headliner in the U.S. Benatar also became one of the most-played artists during MTV's early days, received several Grammy Awards around this time, and continued to enjoy massive hits and sold-out tours throughout the early to mid-'80s, including such albums as 1981's Precious Time, 1982's Get Nervous, 1983's Live From Earth, 1984's Tropico, 1985's Seven the Hard Way, and 1988's Wide Awake in Dreamland, plus the singles "Fire & Ice," "Promises in the Dark," "Shadows of the Night," "Love Is a Battlefield," "We Belong," and "Invincible." But by the end of the decade, it appeared as though Benatar had fallen of the face of the Earth as the hits seemed to dry up.
Benatar opted to shift musical gears and issue an album of blues and R&B, 1991's True Love, which failed to return the singer back to the top of the charts. Benatar returned back to her patented arena rock sound with such further studio releases as 1993's Gravity's Rainbow and 1997's Innamorata (although the latter of which was largely acoustic-based) and while the albums didn't exactly measure up to her earlier releases, both were solid efforts. The late '90s saw a pair of live archival releases hit record store shelves, 1998's 8-15-80 and 1999's The King Biscuit Flower Hour Live, in addition to countless hits collections (although the best of the bunch proved to be 1989's Best Shots, which remains a steady seller to this day). The singer began touring again by the middle of the decade (after taking a five-year hiatus from the road), co-headlining shows with REO Speedwagon, Fleetwood Mac, the Steve Miller Band, and Styx. She also continued to dabble in acting, appearing in the ABC Afterschool Special Torn Between Two Fathers and on various sitcoms. In August 2003, Benatar returned to recording with Go (Vanguard), her first studio LP since '97's Innamorata. The LP revisited the arena rock/MOR sound that had defined Benatar's career, and was accompanied by an extensive tour. ~
