In the early to mid-’70s, the pixieish, leather-clad glam grrrl Suzi Quatro held her own with the best of them (they being Alice Cooper, Sweet, T. Rex) everywhere but in her native land, where she was treated as a novelty. To see the impact of her arena-friendly metal-pop — represented on the raucous anthology The Wild One: Classic Quatro — one need only look at Courtney Love, Chrissie Hynde, and nearly every other important female who has since strapped on a guitar.
