Making Stalking Sexy


When the video for Pat Benatar's "I'm Gonna Follow You" came out, it defined the brand-new MTV for me.

The few videos that did air on the baby music channel were in pretty heavy rotation, but I couldn't get enough of this one.

Benatar was tough, gorgeous and mysterious ... and she proved girls could rock just as hard as the boys.

She and I have both aged considerably since 1980 and, when she and her husband Neil Giraldo play the Knitting Factory tonight, I have no doubt the show will be a more intimate ride. But even though neither of us will probably be in Spandex pants or wearing huge, door-knocker sized earrings, I plan to hop on the nostalgia train follow her all the way to the end.
