She had to cancel her appearance at the Detroit Music Awards , where she was to be inducted into the Detroit Hall of Fame along with her sisters, scheduled for April This would have been her first performance in America in over 30 years. Quatro also had to reschedule other concert dates, while some were cancelled altogether.
In a interview, Quatro was asked what she thought she had achieved for female rockers in general. She replied:. Before I did what I did, we didn't have a place in rock 'n' roll. Not really. You had your Grace Slick and all that, but that's not what I did.
I was the first to be taken seriously as a female rock 'n' roll musician and singer. That hadn't been done before. I played the boys at their own game.
For everybody that came afterward, it was a little bit easier, which is good. I'm proud of that. If I have a legacy, that's what it is. It's nothing I take lightly. It was gonna happen sooner or later. In , I will have done my job 50 years.
It was gonna be done by somebody, and I think it fell to me to do because I don't look at gender. I never have. It doesn't occur to me if a 6-foot-tall guy has pissed me off not to square up to him.
That's just the way I am. If I wanted to play a bass solo, it never occurred to me that I couldn't. When I saw Elvis for the first time when I was 5, I decided I wanted to be him, and it didn't occur to me that he was a guy. That's why it had to fall to somebody like me. In a interview, Quatro sympathised with many of the opinions voiced by the women's liberation movement while distancing herself from it because she considered that the participants were.
Their leaders stand up there and say, 'We're individuals blab blab blab,' and yet they're all in a group following like sheep. For me, I cannot put the two together I'm talking about the masses that follow [the movement's leaders who get press attention] and who have nothing at all to say.
It gives it all a very phoney light. I hope they can find a way to apply it to their own lives, because grouping together takes away the whole idea of Women's Lib. The interviewer, Charles Shaar Murray , considered her viewpoint to be " In , Philip Norman said that.
Of all female rock singers, she appears the most emancipated: a small girl leading an all-man group in which she herself plays bass guitar.
The image is of a tomboy, lank-haired, tight-bottomed and twice tattooed; a rocker, a brooder, a loner, a knife-carrier; a hell-cat, a wild cat, a storm child, refugee from the frightened city of Detroit. Feelgood 's Wilko Johnson. It was described by Quatro as a "warts and all" look into her career, focusing on both her successes and challenges faced along the way, particularly as she left her sisters in Detroit to pursue a solo career in London.
Quatro stated that she was drawn to having Melbourne-based director Liam Firmager make the film, "Because although he liked my music, he wasn't particularly "A Fan", which meant he was objective, and wouldn't spend all his time telling me how great I am I like that, he was the right guy for the job".

In August , Simon Frith spotted a problem with the formula that was working outside the US, saying that. Suzi's facing a bit of a [commercial] crisis: Chinn and Chapman, having proved their point, are losing interest in her.
She's never had their best material they don't play many games with her and each of her singles has been less gripping than the one before. Unless they suddenly imagine a new joke, she's in danger of petering out and she lacks the resources to fight back.
None of her own musical talents has been needed and so they've been ignored except on the throwaway B-sides and while Sweet and Mud have their histories and themselves to draw on for support, Suzi's present has nothing to do with her past and her group was formed only to play Chinnichap music. Mud may become a top cabaret act and Sweet a respected rock group, but Suzi will only be a memory.

Though some women like Quatro herself played instruments in American all-female garage rock bands, none of these bands achieved more than regional success.

Musician Tina Weymouth , who played bass guitar in Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club , among other bands, first learned to play bass by listening to Quatro albums. Quatro performed five songs with a local band that included her sister Patti and Tony Scalzo of the band Fastball on "Stumblin In".
Quatro's music covers several genres. Her primary genres are hard rock ,  glam rock   and female cock rock. Auslander analysed Quatro's live performances of " Can the Can " plus " Breakdown " and concluded that she performed as a cock-rocker.
By foregrounding her status as a rock player, not just a singer, Quatro declares ownership of the symbolic rock cock. With the Pleasure Seekers , their musical styles and genres included power pop ,  garage rock  and Motown. Some info in this table was taken from The Great Rock Discography.
