Happy 70th Birthday Proto Punk Bassist Suzi Quatro (Watch “Devil Gate Drive” Live)

Happy 70th birthday today to trailblazing rocker Suzi Quatro (born 6/3/50), noticed as perhaps the first rock star female bass player. Directly influencing the Runaways, Quatro brought her Detroit cred with a loud sound and confidence not seen from females in the rock spectrum that weren’t sole lead singers. She reached no. 1 in the UK and other European countries and Australia with her singles “Can the Can” (1973) and “Devil Gate Drive.” Check out the original B& W clip for “Devil Gate Drive”…
