9780061953781: Between a Heart and a Rock Place: A Memoir

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.

From the Back Cover:

For more than thirty years, Pat Benatar has been one of the most iconic women in rock music, with songs like "Heartbreaker," "Hit Me with Your Best Shot," and "Love Is a Battlefield" becoming anthems for generations of fans. Now, in this intimate and uncompromising memoir, one of the bestselling female rock artists of all time shares the story of her extraordinary career, telling the truth about her life, her struggles, and how she won things—her way.

From her early days in the New York club scene of the 1970s to headlining sold-out arena tours, Benatar offers a fascinating account of a life spent behind the microphone and speaks candidly about the realities of breaking into the boys' club of rock and roll. Written with the attitude and defiance that embody Pat Benatar's music, Between a Heart and a Rock Place is a rock-and-roll story unlike any other, a remarkable tale of playing by your own rules even if that means breaking a few of theirs.

About the Author:

One of the most accomplished female rock musicans of all time, multiple Grammy Award-winner Pat Benatar has sold more than 22 million records and produced nineteen Top 40 singles. She lives in California with her husband and two daughters.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For 30 years, Pat Benatar has been one of the most influential women in popular music. Now, this rock legend tells her story as she saw it, recalling her rise to fame, life in the MTV generation, her tours, the fans, and how she managed to avoid the trappings of rock stardom. Part of the first generation of female rock stars to put the women s movement into practice, Benatar s career has embodied the defiant attitude and rebellious edge that has long been associated with her music. As the first woman ever to be featured on MTV, Benetar s story is an incredible inside look at the integral role that the nascent cable network played in shaping the face of music in the 1980s, helping to propel rock anthems like Heartbreaker and Love Is a Battlefield to the top of the charts. Winner of an unprecented four consecutive Grammys for best female rock performance, Benatar details a unique time in music history, demonstrating how the advent of music videos turned musicians into platinum selling stars overnight, but also set the stakes for being a female sex symbol in the male-dominated world of the music business.
