Vocal Icon Pat Benatar To Release Memoir 'Between A Heart And A Rock Place' In Stores And Online June 15th
Four-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist Pat Benatar is one of the top selling female artists of all time. If you were around in the 80's, her music was everywhere.
On the radio, MTV, clubs - everywhere you turned, it was a good bet that before too long, you would hear one of her songs played. The mega hits "Heartbreaker", "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", "Love Is A Battlefield", "Shadows Of The Night" and more helped propel her career to stardom, resulting in her accruing nineteen Top 40 singles, six platinum and four gold albums.
The first woman ever to be featured on MTV, Benatar quickly became one of the most influential women in rock music. A mainstay on the network, her massive success solidified her standing as one of the most successful vocalists of all time.
Now in her first ever memoir, Between a Heart and a Rock Place: A Memoir, to be released via Harper Collins this Tueday, June 15th, the rock legend candidly tells her story as she saw it, detailing her rise to fame, life in the MTV generation, her tours, the fans, and how she managed to avoid the trappings of rock stardom.
Going backstage and into the studio, Benatar sets the record straight about how her music evolved, illustrating the visionary role that her guitarist, producer, and eventual husband Neil “Spyder” Giraldo played in combining her classically trained voice with his razor-sharp guitar to create her unique hard rock sound.
