Suzi Quatro is regarded as the first female rocker to play bass and sing.
She kicked in the doors and knocked down lots of walls for all the women who followed.
In the documentary “Suzi Q” so many people sing her praises.
There are the female rockers who came later, Cherie Currie, Joan Jett and Lita Ford from The Runaways, Deborah Harry from Blondie, Kathy Valentine from The Go-Go’s and more.
Plus the men who recognized her talent: Alice Cooper, Clem Burke from Blondie, Chris Franz from Talking Heads and so many others.
Suzi played Leather Tuscadero in “Happy Days”.
It was a character that fit her real personality.
Before she was a solo artist she was in the all girl band The Pleasure Seekers with family and neighbors.
