Suzi Q (2019)
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. SUZI Q positions Suzi Quatro as the trailblazer and inspiration for a generation of women rock musicians who were to follow in the next decade; and reminds contemporary audiences of her pioneering influence, white-hot talent and string of incandescent pop-rock hits.
Testimony is enthusiastically made by a string of rock luminaries, particularly prominent women who followed the roadmap Suzi charted for them, in the late 70s and onwards. Exiled in Europe by her success while largely forgotten in her homeland, we return with Suzi to Detroit ; SUZI Q explores the long-simmering family tensions and sibling rivalries that result from the success of one family member over its other talented members; as we reveal the price paid for success in a deeply personal exploration of fame, ambition, ego and resilience.
Singer, songwriter, bass player, actress, poet, radio DJ, author - but most fundamentally a performer - and still on the road after more than 50 years - Suzi Quatro surely is The Queen Of Rock n Roll. Accept no substitutes.
