Shot over four years and three continents, Suzi Q is the definitive story of the girl from Detroit City who redefined the role and image of women in rock’n’roll. Much more than a mere biography, this documentary sets the record straight and reminds the world of Suzi’s musical legacy.
Prominent musicians attest to her undeniable influence and under-appreciated status as the first woman to lead a rock band – playing an instrument, singing lead vocals and writing songs – and whose mainstream profile inspired a generation of women to pick up a guitar.
Exiled in Europe thanks to her fame, while forgotten in her homeland, we return with Suzi to Detroit in a deeply personal exploration of fame, ambition and resilience. Still on the road after 50+ years, Suzi Quatro is surely The Queen of rock’n’roll. Trailblazer. Inspiration. Survivor. Suzi is the original. Accept no substitutes.
