Suzi Quatro, Gig Review. Echo Arena, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Iconic perhaps doesn’t do Suzi Quatro justice, the word somehow refuses to roll off the tongue properly, it gets caught up in the mesh of images, in the crossfire of youthful explosion of 70s teenage dreams and admiration of the first woman of Rock, through to the status she truly deserves today.

Imagine a time when the world was just as divided about women in certain positions in life, the thought of a female Prime Minister a few years away, that the insanity of unequal pay for doing the same job still is an issue that has not been resolved, that up and down the land feminism was a cause that was both just and true, not about doing down men but making sure we saw the world for all in equal terms. Imagine that and realise that the world may have been slow to embrace such completely logical thinking but Rock music embraced it without hesitation.

To take a gentle walk through an artist’s life is one of the greatest pleasures that anybody can really hope for. The collected works of Constable, Turner or Van Gogh in an art museum for all to see, an entire volume of Shakespeare’s sonnets in which to let the heart sing, a marathon run of Richard Burton or Pam Grier films at your local art house cinema or a night spent in listening to the recordings of Harlem sensation Gladys Bentley, all art is a series of seeing the performer from first breath, through magical momentum to a hopeful ovation at the end. To walk in their footsteps should be seen as an honour.
