Before Suzi Quatro burst on the music world in 1973, there were almost no women in rock, and absolutely none who played bass and sang lead vocals and led the band and rocked out!Trailblazer. Inspiration. Survivor. Suzi Q is the definitive, unexpurgated story of the girl from Detroit City who redefined the role and image of women in rock ‘n’ roll when she broke through around the world in 1973.
The trailblazer and inspiration for a generation of female rock musicians who followed her, Suzi Q reminds contemporary audiences of her pioneering influence, white-hot talent and string of incandescent pop-rock hits. Testimony is duly made by a string of rock luminaries, with focus on the women who followed the roadmap Suzi charted for them.
Exiled to Europe during her success yet now largely forgotten in her homeland, we return with Suzi to Detroit. Exploring the long simmering family tensions and sibling rivalries that result from the success of one family member, Suzi Q reveals the price paid for success in a deeply personal exploration of fame, ambition and resilience.
Still on the road after 50 years, Suzi Quatro surely is The Queen of Rock’n’Roll. Accept no substitutes.
The documentary will feature interviews with artists including Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Lita Ford, Cherie Currie, Tina Weymouth, Donita Sparks, Alice Cooper and KT Tunstall, along with members of Quatro’s family.
The film will be released on October 11th. Special previews and Q&A sessions with Quatro will take place across the UK from September 25.
