MOORHEAD—It may be Pat Benatar's face on the albums, but behind every rock singer there's a guitarist, and for 35 years that's been Neil "Spyder" Giraldo.

Through the years, he's also been her chief songwriting partner and producer. Giraldo has been more than Benatar's partner in music. They married in 1982 and have two daughters.
