“Suzi Q is the definitive, unexpurgated story of American rock singer-songwriter-bass player-author-actor Suzi Quatro, who helped redefine the role of women in rock ‘n’ roll when she broke out into the mainstream in 1973; has sold more than 50 million records worldwide; is still on the road and recording 55 years after she first started playing professionally. The film includes testimony from a host of rock luminaries, including Alice Cooper, Joan Jett, Deborah Harry, Cherie Currie, KT Tunstall, Tina Weymouth, and Suzi’s musical family; and follows Quatro as she returns to her hometown, Detroit.”
Not going to lie… I knew next to nothing about Suzi Q going into this. Except for the Creedance song, which apparently has nothing to do with Suzi Quatro. I was convinced all movie that it did.
The editing for this was excellent. I loved the way it was put together. Especially the way they displayed the old pictures/videos. It was also cool seeing/hearing interviews from Alice Cooper and Joan Jett.
Suzi Quatro is an awe inspiring trailblazer and I would’ve never known if it weren’t for this documentary. She paved the way for so many women in rock and roll. Thank you, Suzi!
Suzi Q will be available on VOD and DVD, July 3rd.
