Heavy Makeup quote:
“HEAVY MAKEUP: If Ozzy Osborne is the godfather of heavy metal, then you would be considered the godmother of glitter rock. How do you feel about being compared to glitter/glam bands? Where did you see yourself fitting into the music scene at that particular point in time?
Suzi Quatro: I am not glitter or glam, and don’t understand why I am always put into this category…I am pure rock and roll, going back to its original sound…always have been…the boys had makeup on…I had nothing…just a plain leather suit that I still wear, I consider myself the queen of rock and roll…always have.
HEAVY MAKEUP: During concerts, you could kick those platform shoes high in the air; did you ever have any mishaps or Spinal Tap type experiences?
Suzi Quatro: My platforms…were really quite small, just one layer…not like the others…I can kick quite high still…re Spinal Tap moments…I have so many you would need another six pages…my falls onstage are legendary.”
Take a trip down “Devil Gate Drive” and glide on over.
