#134 – Suzi Quatro – In the Spotlight

Suzi Quatro is known in the US for her role as Leather Tuscadero on TV’s Happy Days, and her 1978 Top Ten duet with Chris Norman “Stumblin’ In.” But, overseas she’s a bona fide icon – selling a staggering 50 million records worldwide, scoring several number one singles in both the UK and Australia.  Quatro has just released her 15th album, In the Spotlight, a strong return to form helmed by longtime producer Mike Chapman, who also worked on many of her earliest recordings.  Icon Fetch talks to the “Divine Ms. Q”  while on vacation in Miami about writing her autobiography, choosing the eclectic array of cover songs for the new record (including one by Rihanna), and how she actually landed the role on Happy Days.
