Neil Giraldo was a son of Anthony and Angela, who introduced him to the guitar at the age of six, while his uncle Tim used to play him such bands as The Yardbirds, The Kinks, and The Rolling Stones, among many others.

Giraldo started his career as a member of the Rick Derringer band, beating 200 other guitarists for the job. He met his future wife, Pat Benatar after the producer and writer Mike Chapman was the initiator of their meeting with ideas of forming a band. Benatar and Giraldo released their debut album entitled “In the Heat of the Night” (1979), which achieved platinum status led by the singles “Heartbreaker” and “We Live For Love”. The pair became the first male and female to ever appear on MTV, in the video for “You Better Run”, and released the Grammy Award-winning single entitled “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”. Neil’s net worth was well set.

In 1980, they released “Crimes of Passion”, and then in 1981 “Precious Time” earned Benatar another Grammy Award, while “Get Nervous” achieved the same success with the song “Shadows of the Night”. In 1982, Benatar and Giraldo recorded “Live From Earth, and received their fourth Grammy with the single “Love Is a Battlefield”. By the end of the ‘80s, Pat and Neil had released several more albums including “Tropico” (1984), “Wide Awake In Dreamland” (1988), and “True Love” (1989), so Neil’s net worth was rising sreadily.

Naturally, Giraldo participated on both Benatar’s albums in the ‘90s, “Gravity’s Rainbow” (1993) and “Inamorata” (1997), while in 2001, he composed the music for the movie called “Nailed” starring Harvey Keitel. Most recently, Giraldo played on Pat Benatar’s “Go” in 2003, and wrote the music for the film “Smile” (2004), with Linda Hamilton in the lead role.

Most recently, Neil and Pat embarked on an extensive “35th Anniversary” tour in 2014-15, the success of which certainly added to his and her net worth, including album sales.

Regarding his personal life, Neil Giraldo married Pat Benatar in 1982, and has two children with her.
