Suzi Quatro- The Original Riot Grrrl

You may not be familiar with Suzi Quatro’s musical career, you may know her only as Fonzi’s gal pal Leather Tuscadero on Happy Days, but Suzi isn't just some sitcom star or wannabe biker chick- she’s the original riot grrrl.

Suzi started her musical career in Detroit in 1964 when she formed a band with sister Patti and two friends called The Pleasure Seekers, but by the time Suzi went solo in 1973 she was the leather clad, bass playing Motor City badass later acts like The Runaways would admire and emulate.

Suzi is the first female bass player to become a major rock star, and paved the way for female rockers to come like Heart and Joan Jett, and if you like Garage Rock you should definitely read more about the storied career of the amazing Suzi Quatro here.
