It’s surely not news by now that I tend to find mainstream music, for lack of a better word well…lacking. While flipping stations on the radio, I came upon yet another Adele single written about whatever heartbreak she’d suffered in her young life. Don’t get me wrong, “Rolling in the deep” is a killer song. The girl has an amazing voice and puts serious passion into her songs…but the subject matter is always the same. Blah blah boys, blah blah sad, blah blah…blah.

Michigan’s Suzi Quatro, part of a very musical family including her father Art, brother Michael and sister Patti (she was in Fanny), moved to England in 1971 to find her fame and fortune. Standing just five feet tall and playing a bass that weighed half of what she did Suzi found a new musical family, Mickie Most, Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman. Most was a well know record producer with credits that included The Animals and Jeff Beck and Chinn/Chapman were writing hit after glam rock hit for the likes of The Sweet and Mud. It was a match made in heaven.
