SUZI Q is the definitive, unexpurgated story of American rock singer-songwriter -bass player- author- actor Suzi Quatro, who helped redefine the role of women in rock 'n' roll when she broke out into the mainstream 1973; has sold more than 50 million records worldwide; is still on the road and recording 55 years after she first started playing professionally. The film includes testimony from a host of rock luminaries, including Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, Deborah Harry, Cherie Currie, KT Tunstall, Tina Weymouth and Suzi's musical family; and follows Quatro as she returns to her hometown, Detroit.
Suzi Quatro is very far from Mötley Crüe, so if you are looking for the "sex, drugs and rock and roll" scene then this may not be for you.
We get an intimate view of a very strong willed woman from childhood up to the present seen through her lens as well as her family and celebrities she has worked with and influenced.
As a European I only knew of her music, but in her home country she didn't break through until far later than in the rest of the world and not primarily through her music but in large part from a recurring role in "Happy Days".
The pragmatic and down to earth nature of this Detroit rock star is what sets her apart and makes this a very unusual tale of rock stardom that people should know about.
