Albums Of The Week: Suzi Quatro | The Devil In Me

The ageless glam-rocker is still kicking up her heels at 70 — & still living in the ’70s.


THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:The Devil In Me is the best album in my career to date!” says Suzi Quatro. And the American rock vocalist would hardly utter such superlatives lightly.

Suzi’s enthusiasm for her latest offering has many causes — 12 of them to be precise. Because The Devil In Me consists of exactly a dozen songs, each of which — from the glam-fuelled opening title track to the hard-driving finale Motor City Riders — is a highlight in its own right. At the age of 70, Quatro hasn’t lost a step and shows no sign of slowind down. And the fact that the thought of hanging up her bass remains a long way in the distant future is partly due to The Devil In Me, her third album in five years. “I have to confess that I could hardly wait to work on new material again with (her son) Richard after the release of No Control,” Suzi explains. “Every album has its own creative history and I know that it’s impossible to plan success. But Richard and I were certain of one thing: We knew we’d be a good team again.”
