If you knew Suzi… and other 4 letter words…

May 5, 2009

Suzi Quatro is a Rock ‘n Roll archetype come to life. She is OG Motown bad ass that owns the night… drinking beer and kicking ass. She is also the wild one that all guys wish their tidy girlfriends would be… every man’s fantasy clad in skin tight leather. Not that any man stands a chance cuz her first love is for Rock n Roll.


Suzi Quatro was a Glitter Rock Jukebox Queen, but been payin dues since way back. She started her first group in Detroit with her three sisters in 1965. They were called the Pleasure Seekers. They cut a single for “What a Way to Die”, a song about how Suzi prefers the comfort of cold beer to that of a warm man and features the chorus, “I may not live past 21, but WHEW what a way to die!!!!” That song is hard as hell to find, but seek it out and the pleasure you’ll hear in that song will be your reward. The Pleasure Seekers cut a couple other singles and did some touring including gigs for the troops in Vietnam.

I was inspired to do this post on Suzi thanks to this post on Gnarlitude… check it out!!!
