Episode 138 - Suzi Quatro
Suzi Quatro codified a type of rock & roll woman who didn't exist before she took the stage, one who looked as tough as the guys and wasn't merely a singer but also an instrumentalist, the leader of the band who made the noise right along with the rest of the group. With her trademark leather jumpsuit and big bass guitar Quatro created a new and potent image for women in rock, one that spoke of both strength and sex appeal, and she became a major international star in the '70s with "Can the Can," a stomping bit of glam rock that kicked off a series of hit singles in the U.K. and defined the sound of her best-known work. Quatro would finally break big in the States in 1978 with a more pop-oriented single, "Stumblin' In. Her latest album "The Devil In Me" is a return to rock roots.
