Suzi Quatro – The Artist

Susan Kay Quatro better known as Suzi Quatro (born 1950) is an American rock singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actress. She was the first female bass player to become a major rock star and play glam rock. In the 1970s, Quatro scored a string of hit singles that found greater success in Europe and Australia than in her homeland. She reached no. 1 in the UK and other European countries and Australia with her singles “Can the Can” (1973) and “Devil Gate Drive” (1974). Following a recurring role as bass player Leather Tuscadero on the popular American sitcom Happy Days, her duet “Stumblin’ In” with Smokie’s lead singer Chris Norman reached No. 4 in the US.
Quatro released her eponymous debut album in 1973. Since then, she has released fifteen studio albums, ten compilation albums, and one live album. Her other solo hits include “48 Crash”, “Daytona Demon”, “The Wild One”, and “Your Mama Won’t Like Me”.

48 Crash – The Song

48 Crashis written by N.Chinn and M.Chapman and performed by Suzi Quatro. This Quatro’s third solo single was released after she moved from the United States to Britain. In the United States she had already released two singles with all-female band The Pleasure Seekers. The song “48 Crash” was written and produced by Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn. The song has long been assumed to be about male menopause. However, according to the British writer D. J. Taylor, one alternative theory is that, having boasted of their ability to write “a song about anything”, Chapman and Chinn were issued with the challenge to come up with a treatment of the 1848 United States economic crisis.

Overweight Man  – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a  silhouette of an overweight man. Weight gain is a considered reaction to men ageing and the male menopause.
