Suzi Quatro: Strict Machine

Bassist Suzi Quatro started her musical career at the age of fourteen, playing in the all-female band, The Pleasure Seekers and Cradle, with her sisters. Her father got her started, giving Quatro as 1957 Fender Precision as her first bass.

Quatro has another claim to fame: starring in the sitcom Happy Days as Leather Tuscadero, the younger sister to Pinky Tuscadero. Quatro’s role included fronting a band.

Here is Quatro making her return and performing the bass-driven tune, “Strict Machine” from her recently released album In The Spotlight.
