Suzi Q, a documentary about Suzi Quatro; an American rock singer-songwriter who helped redefine the role of women in rock ‘n’ roll in the early 70s is a film I was drawn to because I like stories about pioneers and strong courageous people.
From director Liam Firmager; we get to hear from Quatro herself; while also learning about her from family, friends and peers – including Joan Jett, Henry Winkler, Alice Cooper, Debbie Harry and KT Tunstall.
I hadn’t heard of Quatro until this documentary. Now that I’m more familiar, rather than being a fan of Quatro’s music, I’m more a fan of what she represents. The fact that she’s the first female bass player to become a major rockstar is a notable achievement. Especially around fifty years ago during an even more sexist period in the music industry.
I’m certainly glad to have learned about Quatro, even though there are periods during Suzi Q when I found myself not as engaged as I wanted to be.
Overall, I can’t say that Suzi Q is close to the best music documentary I’ve seen. Nevertheless, If you’re curious about Quatro’s journey, and especially if you’re a fan of her music, then give Suzi Q a chance.
Happy Film Loving

Randomly I met her once.. obviously way after she was famous but I was and still am, a huge Debbie Harry fan & knew her drummer Clem Burke really well for a while. so it made me want to know more about her and I researched her and now I really want to see this! thanks for letting me even know about it. And where did you find it so I can give it a watch.. 🙂
I love random meetings like that! As for Debbie Harry and Blondie I’d definitely heard of her and her band before this documentary. It’s hard not to be a fan of hers. 🤓
