In the 1970s Quatro scored a string of hit singles that found greater success in European and Australia territories than in her homeland. But, following a recurring role as female bass player Leather Tuscadero on the popular American sitcom Happy Days, her duet "Stumblin' In" with Chris Norman reached number 4 in the USA in 1979.

Quatro released her Suzi Quatro (album)/self-titled debut album in 1973. Since then, she has released fifteen studio albums, ten compilation albums, and one live album. Her solo hits include "Can the Can", "48 Crash", "Daytona Demon", "Devil Gate Drive", and "Your Mamma Won't Like Me".
