Suzi Quatro, "Leather Tuscadero"

Suzi Quatro at Her Leather Best

Suzi Quatro was a successful recording artist of the 1970s who created an image of the ultimate leather rocker chick. She even went to the lengths of wearing leather bikinis and leather boots by the pool, which got her quite a bit of press attention.

She proved an inspiration of other women rockers such as Joan Jett, who adopted a similar leather look. Ultimately, all the leather-wearing paid off when Suzi was picked to play the part of "Leather Tuscadero" on the hit television show "Happy Days." That is how many remember her, wearing leather and going toe-to-toe with "The Fonz."

I include a couple of different versions of this shot because it is so iconic

Anyway, the pictures speak for themselves. Either you like the leather biker chick thing, or you don't.

Suzi's duet with Chris Norman definitely was a top player on easy listening in the late '70s. Down at the roller rink, couldn't miss it. Right before the Eagles, right after the Starland Vocal Band, maybe shoehorned in there with some Linda Ronstadt....
