Career

Quatro's first single "Rolling Stone" was a flop everywhere except Portugal, where it made number one. Mickie Most then introduced Quatro to the songwriting/production team Nicky Chinn/Mike Chapman. Her second single "Can the Can" (1973) was a number one hit throughout Europe and in Australia. It was followed up by three further major hits: "48 Crash" (1973), "Daytona Demon" (1974) and "Devil Gate Drive" (also 1974) on RAK Records. Her first two albums were also huge European and Australian successes. Nicky Chinn (born May 16, 1945) was the songwriting (and production) partner of Michael Chapman. ...

These recordings, however, met little success in her native USA, despite her tours in the mid-1970s supporting Alice Cooper, and except in Australia, the popularity of Quatro's heavy glam rock style declined rapidly from 1975. In the interim, she did enjoy some success as a session player. Interestingly, she became something of a muse for Rick Derringer, who tailored his androgynous appearance to resemble an eerie doppelganger of Quatro. This is particularly evident on the liner photographer for the Edgar Winter Group's album "Shock Treatment." Quatro's fortunes did not revive until 1978 when "If You Can't Give Me Love" was a Top Ten hit in the UK and Australia. Though this still failed to break Quatro in the US, when she joined Chris Norman of Smokie in 1979 for "Stumblin' In", she had a #4 hit there with RSO Records. This success was very brief and her last solo hit (and that only in Australia) was "Rock Hard" in early 1981. In 1985, Quatro collaborated with Bronski Beat and members of The Kinks, Eddie & The Hot Rods and Dr. Feelgood on the Mark Cunningham-produced version of David Bowie's classic "Heroes", released the following year as the official 1986 BBC Children In Need single.
