Italy 1975 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the L’Altro Mondo, Rimini, Italy, August 15, 1975. Very good soundboard.

Some rockers seem to age better than others. Take Suzi Quatro for instance. Viewers of Midsomer Murder might have caught her in the episode, The Axeman Cometh (picture right),  where she could still cut a commanding figure on stage. [Suzi’s sister, Patti was a member of Fanny, one of the earliest all-female rock bands - tip of the hat to “The Doc”.]

While some fans consider Joan Jett the “Queen of Rock And Roll” [probably more because of her hit I Love Rock And Roll], the title could very well have been applied to Suzi Quatro though its damn hard to dislodge Patti Smith from the throne right now.

With her black leather jacket and brash performance, she challenged and usually walked away victorious, the male-dominated rock scene with hits such as 48 Crash, Can The Can, Devil Gate Drive and even that Elvis chestnut, All Shook Up. Though born in Detroit, Quatro found fame outside the United States - in Europe, Australia and Asia [where her records were played alongside those by fellow glam rocker, Gary Glitter or the Glitter Band].

For this 1975 Italian show, Quatro might have been promoting her Your Mamma Won’t Like Me album but where the audience was concerned, it’s almost a best-of compilation. And more rock than glam, the fans were not disappointed.

And when Quatro heard about Michael Jackson’s death, she posted on her website ( “woke up at 3 am last night… went downstairs… for some reason… went online… and then I saw the headlines… shocked to the core… went back to bed… mumbling… “I can’t believe he’s dead!!!’ which eventually woke Amy up… ‘what did you say grandma’… ‘Michael Jackson is dead… go back to sleep honey’… and she did… I was in tears most of the day… radio played non stop song by this marvelously talented man… what a shame his big come back turned into a ‘never’ come back…  for one will keep his memory alive… in my heart.”
