Was there ever a more underappreciated talent to come out of Long Island? Yeah, Pat Benatar sold scads of albums and was a regular presence on MTV in the early to mid-‘80s, but did she ever get the kind of critical props for someone who blazed a trail for women in rock? Nowadays more about playing live than recording, Benatar and husband/creative partner Neil Giraldo are swinging through for their annual hometown gig.
