HEN Suzi Qu­a­tro started play­ing in bands, back in 1964, it was a lonely place for women.

“I was the only one do­ing what I was do­ing. There were no other girls that I could look up to and say, ‘I want to be like them,’ be­cause they didn’t ex­ist,” she tells The BINGE Guide.

“So I had to be very sure of my­self, very sure of where I wanted to go and stick to it, which is what I did.”

It would prove the mak­ing of her and es­tab­lish a ca­reer that even now is only get­ting the recog­ni­tion for her pi­o­neer­ing ef­forts that she de­serves.

“It’s why I made it,” she says proudly, “be­cause I didn’t com­pro­mise my­self. I was who I am and I’m still the same now. I do not com­pro­mise for any­body, not one inch,” she in­sists. “I knew very early on that this is my call­ing. It’s more than a job, it’s a call­ing.”

Born in Detroit, this pint-sized pi­o­neer­ing rock goddess would pave the way for other ballsy fe­male rock­ers such as Joan Jett and Deb­o­rah Harry.

Though Qu­a­tro saw enor­mous sales here in Aus­tralia and Europe, stardom at home proved more elu­sive.

Qu­a­tro, 70, is speak­ing on a video con­fer­enc­ing app from her home in Es­sex, where she’s lived for more than 30 years.

The re­mark­ably youth­ful-look­ing mother of two and grand­mother to a 19-year-old is wear­ing a red shirt, a black leather vest and black pants.

Lean­ing back in her of­fice chair, she smiles and holds up a glass of cham­pagne.

“I’m go­ing to re­lax and drink my cham­pagne. It’s 7.30pm so I’m al­lowed,” she chuck­les.

Qu­a­tro gave Aus­tralian film­mak­ers Liam Fir­mager and Tait Brady carte
