Bass guitarist and vocalist Suzi Quatro, best known for a series of hit singles in the 1970s and for her recurring role as “Leather” Tuscadero on the popular sitcom, Happy Days, released a new studio album, No Control, on March 29.

The album, from SPV/Steamhammer, is her first solo studio LP since 2011. Listen to several songs below.

Quatro, born June 3, 1950, is in the midst of an extensive 2019 tour calendar.

Quatro has plenty of 2019 concerts scheduled including U.K. dates as part of a “Legends Live” lineup that also includes David Essex and Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers.

The classic rock artist, who turns 69 on June 3, has successfully worked as a musician for more than 50 years. Though she’s from Detroit, Quatro’s initial success was overseas. Her big breakthrough occurred in a two-year span, from 1973-74, with a series of singles, two of which – “Can the Can” and “Devil Gate Drive” – reached #1 in the U.K. and several other European territories.

Though “Can the Can” and a cover of “All Shook Up” charted in the U.S., it wasn’t until her 1978 duet with Chris Norman, “Stumblin’ In,” that Quatro achieved a hit at home when the song reached #4 on the Hot 100.

On her continuing to record and perform, Quatro says: “I’ll retire when I go onstage, shake my ass, and there is silence.”

No Control features 11 new songs (plus two bonus tracks). The majority of the material consists of collaborations with her son from her first marriage, Richard Tuckey. In the announcement, Quatro says: “This was our first attempt at writing and recording something together. And, through this unusually beautiful English summer of 2018, we sat outside, acoustic bass, acoustic guitar, iPad recording app, and lots of paper, throwing ideas back and forth.”

    I think Suzi is a great performer and great person off and on the stage. She really knows what rock n roll is all about. She’s really a straight up person .I admire her about that. Her breakout hit stumbling in was great. But believe it or not I loved that song suicide. The drum beat got me hooked. And it’s 60s hippy touch of music.. all I can say is if you knew Suzi’s music you would fall in love. In turn she’s in love with you..her fans.
