Armed with plenty of attitude, rocker Pat Benatar became a pop music legend in the '80s. Her singles "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" and "Love Is a Battlefield" became huge hits that echoed Benatar's fierce "take no prisoners" outlook. She and guitarist (and husband) Neil "Spyder" Giraldo perform Tuesday at Rams Head Live, 20 Market Place. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $39.50. Call 410-244-1131 or go to ramsheadlive.com.

It's Week 3 of "The Bachelorette" and we are down to 16 guys in women's tank tops. Chris arrives at the mansion with the first of two group-date cards. The “Love Is A Battlefield” date goes to Chris, Brian, Drew, Michael, Brooks, Brad, Mikey T., Brandon, Zack and Ben.  Let the battling begin! After a quick limo ride in a stretch SUV, the guys are greeted by Des covered in pink lycra.  Instead of being treated to a Pat Benatar concert, the guys are introduced to the men of the National Dodgeball League.

Benatar can't do justice to first-rate blues materialTRUE LOVEPat Benatar (Chrysalis 21805)There's nothing wrong with an established pop star wanting to strike out in a new direction. Linda Ronstadt, for instance, earned considerable acclaim for her album of Mexican songs, while Robert Plant's return to roots with the Honeydrippers was a major hit. Unfortunately, not every artist's attempt at reinvention pans out; some end up as hopelessly inept as Pat Benatar's botch-of-the-blues album, "True Love."

Maryland State Fair Our state fair is a great state fair (thanks to Rodgers & Hammerstein for that intro), as this weekend should prove to any doubters. Running through Monday, the annual Free State gathering in Timonium brings together stomach-churning carnival rides, foods fried in ways you'd never thought possible and buildings filled with farm animals (including the always-popular racing pigs). Oh yeah, and there's this little concert Sunday featuring a kid named Justin Bieber; maybe you've heard of him?

Pat Benatar no longer judges success by how many copies her albums sell."This record was a success the day we went into the studiobecause we were doing what we wanted to do," said Benatar, who abandoned her rock 'n' roll roots for a blues-drenched new album called "True Love."But despite the drastic change in format -- sometimes her voice doesn't even sound like the Benatar who was rock's undisputed queen during the early '80s -- commercial success has strangely followed."We're almost gold [500,000 units]

Dave Mustaine, lead singer and guitarist for Megadeth, used to live the life of the stereotypical heavy-metal rock star."I never went to sleep, I passed out," Mustaine said. "I never RTC woke up, I just came to. It's really no way to live."Mustaine will freely admit that he is a "serious, raging, full-blown drug addict," but he's been clean and sober for more than 14 months ."When I got arrested I had nine different chemicals in my body," said Mustaine, who leads "The Clash of the Titans," featuring Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax and Alice In Chains, at the Baltimore Arena Sunday.
