Suzi Quatro

Recently, I painted my fingernails charcoal gray (my nails are always bare or polished clear). Yesterday, I bought a tiny & tight black moto jacket, along with that jacket I bought a pair of tight ombre jeans. My husband asked me if I was in my "Suzi Quatro" phase. Embarrassingly, I had to admit I didn't know who she was. He knew her as Fonzi's girlfriend on Happy Days (she was actually Fonzi's girlfriend's little sister), but after I looked her up I realized she was more than that. First of all, what is way awesome is her name is actually Suzi (Susan) Quatro; like one of the coolest names ever, no? She was actually rock's first female bass player who influenced the likes of Blondie & Pat Benatar. And I love that she is from Detroit! Her look is iconic to say the least...

Maybe it's just the era/hair, but she looks a little like Kristy McNichol. Well, a badass Kristy McNichol!

Joan Jett started out as a massive Quatro fan and would never have happened without Suzi - neither would the Runaways, the Pretenders or countless other female rockers
