Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo on Rewriting “Love is a Battlefield”

Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo on Rewriting “Love is a Battlefield”

At the 2016 ASCAP Expo, Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo gave a candid interview and talked about the songwriting process. In this clip, they explain how the smash hit “Love is a Battlefield” began as a ballad with a beautiful melody and moving chord changes. After some exploration with drum machines and the band, the arrangement and production we know today came to life. Check out the clip above for that story and watch the clip below for an impromptu performance of “We Belong” showing that Pat and Neil still got what it takes to rock!

Catch Pat and Neil on the road this year as they go back on tour with their catalogue of classic rocks songs like “Love is a Battlefield” and “We Belong”!

From a Struggle Singer/Songwriter to International Hitmaker – Bebe Rexha

Before “The Monster” by Eminem and Rihanna was a #1 Billboard charting hit in a dozen countries and #1 on UK R&B, US Billboard Hot 100, US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (Billboard), US Mainstream Top 40 (Billboard) and US Rhythmic (Billboard), a struggling songwriter in NY was writing a song called “Monster Under My Bed” in her parent’s dining room. Little did Bebe Rexha know that the song would change her life and in a year, Eminem and Rihanna would take the song and make it an international #1 smash hit. This performance from Jimmy Kimmel Live showcases Bebe Rexha’s original version of the song she wrote before she was an international hitmaker.

Remembering Prince

Prince Vision4Music V4M RKVCThe enigmatic legend of pop, RnB, rock, funk and virtually any genre known to the western world, Prince, passed away at his home in Paisley Park. At 59 years old, the purple one embodied what it truly meant to be an artist among musicians – he was an icon, a virtuosic guitarist, singer, songwriter and a mysterious entity that seemed to hover amongst the likes of ancient gods. His music inspired generations of not only musicians and songwriters, but anyone that dared to be the most radical version of themselves.

In his career, Prince recorded 39 studio albums, 4 live albums, 13 EPs and released 104 singles. In addition, he starred in numerous motion pictures and contributed to dozens of compilation and album projects. Though he was taken from us far too soon, his legacy is a gift that we are blessed beyond measure to have.

Our interactive DVD’s cover subjects from who invented the guitar to how to write and record a hit record. The shows explore the early guitar players up to current players and how those guitar players influenced the featured series guitar player. Each DVD features different genres of music from Classical to Rock and Roll to Rhythm and Blues.

Aimee wrote the Martina McBride hit “This One’s for the Girls” and Lonestar’s mega hit “Amazed”.
