I just saw Pat Benatar in concert and loved that she sang my favorite songs. How does she keep her music and show so fresh?

A: There are backstage moments when the Brooklyn-born rocker, 63, admits she’s just not feeling it, but the minute the spotlight hits her, she experiences the same bolt of energy that was there in the beginning, back in 1979. She has cut some songs from her lengthy hit list—”Treat Me Right” is one—but others are so tried and true she’ll never let them go. “I will sing ‘Heartbreaker’ until I am dead,” she vows.
