Z's School of Hard Rocks - Lesson 10 - Pat Benatar
AND NOW FOR THIS WEEK’S LESSON FROM Z’S SCHOOL OF HARD ROCKS. THIS WEEK’S LESSON IS ABOUT A LADY NAMED PATRICIA MAE ANDRZEJEWSKI WHO WAS BORN IN BROOKLYN IN 1953. HER POLISH DAD, ANDREW WAS A METAL WORKER. MOM MILDRED WAS A BEAUTICIAN. PATRICIA WAS INTERESTED IN THEATER AND MUSIC AT AN EARLY AGE AND SHE PERFORMED IN ALL KINDS OF SCHOOL PLAYS, THEATER, PARADES AND CHOIRS.
   INITIALLY SHE PLANNED TO ATTEND THE JULLIARD SCHOOL OF MUSIC, BUT TO EVERYONE’S SURPRISE SHE PURSUED A HEALTH EDUCATION CAREER, MARRIED HER HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART AND WORKED AS A BANK TELLER OUTSIDE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.
     SHE QUIT HER BANK TELLER JOB AND PURSUED A SINGING CAREER IN 1973 AFTER BEING INSPIRED BY A LIZA MINNELLI CONCERT.
     ULTIMATELY SHE WOULD WIN FOUR GRAMMYS FOR BEST FEMALE ROCK PERFORMANCE FROM 1980 TO 1983 AND SHE IS NOW IN THE LONG ISLAND MUSIC HALL OF FAME.
     AND IF YOU CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHO PATRICIA MAE ANDRZEJEWSKI IS, AT LEAST TAKE A GUESS. HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT.
   AND THAT, CLASS, IS THIS WEEK’S LESSON FROM Z’S SCHOOL OF HARD ROCKS.
