Rocker Pat Benatar, the daughter of an opera singer, knew early on that music was her passion. At 26 years old, she fell madly in love with guitarist Neil "Spyder" Giraldo, and they've been making sweet music together ever since.

In 1979, Pat's first album was released, which included the first single, "Heartbreaker." Two years later, Pat made music history when she became the first female solo artist to appear on MTV. Now, after more than three decades, four Grammys and 22 million records sold, Pat is one of rock's all-time greatest leading ladies.
