One of the best-selling female rock stars of all time, the incomparable Pat Benatar writes about her life, rock ’n’ roll, and how her generation changed music forever in Between a Heart and a Rock Place. The first solo female rocker ever to appear on MTV, Benatar writes with the same edge and attitude that was a hallmark of her music—from “Heartbreaker” to “Hit Me with Your Best Shot.” The winner of four consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Female Rock performance, Pat Benatar tells a fascinating, no-holds-barred story of what it was really like to be a woman in the mostly male world of hard rock in the ’80s.
Best shot with plenty of punches
Fans of Pat Benatar will love this autobiography of the 80's rock legend, who is still touring after over three decades of rockin' and rollin'. For such a private person, Pat really opens up and gives insight to her origins and the sources of her music. She pulls no punches on what it was like being a female rock pioneer in what was (and to some extent still is) a male-dominated industry.
I always looked up to Pat Benetar in the 80's and after reading her book, I was even more amazed by her! She's an inspiration even now! She lays out her life, her hard work, the sweetness of success and the agony of defeat. Always keeping her eye on the prize...the love of family and music. She let's you in on all of it. Tell your daughters about this woman!
I have been a Pat Benatar fan since the beginning when I heard "I Need A Lover" on the local rock station. My mother, in her 70's, is a Pat Benatar fan, In High School I had a hard time keeping her away from my Benatar Albums, "Rates X" is still one of her favorite songs.
When I was browsing through books I found this and was instantly thrilled. I had been wanting to find an autobiography on her for years. I had always heard about the bad times with Chrysalis but I wanted to know the real story. In this autobiography I believe we get the story, and so much more. The relationship between her and her husband, the relationship with her band members, her family and the recording industry, but mostly her music.
If you are a Benatar fan then this is a must read. It will help fill in the lines and possibly make you enjoy the music even more. I know reading about it did it for me.
