Suzi Quatro: Suzi Quatro

Alan Betrock, Phonograph Record, March 1974

IT'S HAPPENED BEFORE — little known American rockers going over to England to be "discovered", and returning to their homeland as superstars. The most obvious example is Jimi Hendrix, and others like Scott Engel (Walker Brothers) and P.J. Proby almost made it. They received hysterical success in Britain, but for the most part remained unknown here. Now native Detroiter Suzi Quatro is trying to make lightning strike twice, but whether she will return home as a Jimi Hendrix or a PJ Proby is still unclear.
