Suzi Quatro has always been a performing musician. Born in Michigan she was in successful bands, but got her real career break when super-producer Mickie Most saw her perform live. She flew to England in 1971 and went on to quickly create the monster hit ‘Can The Can’ with songwriters Chinn and Chapman. Two and a half million copies of this song were snapped by an entranced public, catapulting her to the top, where she has stayed. A star was well and truly born.
Having now sold over 55 million records – she featured in the UK charts for 101 weeks between 1973 and 1980! – Suzi has never lost the knack for great rock and roll. Suzi has also proved her versatility over the years: ‘Stumblin’ In’ was a duet with Chris Norman that sold a million copies in the US but she has excelled in many other areas too. Acting, writing novels, broadcasting, her documentary film ‘Suzi Q’, presenting her autobiography Unzipped, live as a successful one-woman show! She has released albums with her peers, and with her son, NO CONTROL and THE DEVIL IN ME and in 2023 FACE TO FACE with KT Tunstall.
The energy and sheer power of performance at a Suzi Quatro show remain undimmed. As she famously says herself, “I will retire when I go on stage, shake my ass, and there is silence”.
