Pat Benatar: Tropico Dancer

John Mendelsohn, Creem, March 1985

ASKED WHAT the most important thing in her life is in the autumn of her fifth year of stardom, Pat(ricia Andrzejwski) Benatar (Geraldo) rapturously replies, "Neil [Geraldo, her husband, lead guitarist, and producer] and the little family that we have, our two dogs and the bambino [that is, the child they expect in March, 1985]. That’s the best thing, and the most important. It makes me real happy to keep that together."
