(born June 3, 1950) is an American rock singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actress.She was the first female bass player to become a major rock star, breaking a barrier to women's participation in rock music.Musicians who acted as her backing band around this period included Alastair Mc Kenzie, Dave Neal and Len Tuckey, With the exception of Australia, her chart success faltered thereafter, as proven with her 1975 hit "Your Mamma Won't Like Me", which proved to be a moderate success in the UK.
"Can the Can", "48 Crash" and "Devil Gate Drive" each sold over one million copies and were awarded gold discs, Rak artists had generally not succeeded in the US and her first album, Suzi Quatro, was criticised by Alan Betrock for its lack of variety, for its Quatro-written "second-rate fillers" and for her voice, described as "often too high and shrill, lacking punch or distinctive phrasing." In 1973, Quatro played on the Cozy Powell hit "Dance With the Devil", a track written by Mickie Most while Cozy Powell was part of the Rak roster.
Quatro has sold over 50 million albums Quatro's family were living in Detroit when she was born.
She has three sisters, a brother, and one older half sister.
They sometimes had to wear miniskirts and hair wigs, which Quatro later considered to be necessary evils in the pursuit of success.
The Pleasure Seekers recorded three singles and released two of these: "Never Thought You'd Leave Me" / "What a Way to Die" (1966) and "Light of Love" / "Good Kind of Hurt" (1968).
