Beauty and the Bass: Eight Great Female Bass Players
This week's Guitar Girl'd column gives you the low-down on eight queens of the low end.
Radio DJ David Jensen said that Quatro “took rock music by the scruff of the neck and empowered women by becoming a major rock star.” Quatro began her musical career at the age of 14, playing the bass in the all-female bands The Pleasure Seekers and Cradle with her sisters Patti, Nancy and Arlene.
But it may be her role as Leather Tuscadero on the hit show Happy Days that brought her the most U.S. exposure. With hits in the UK, Europe and Australia, Quatro is estimated to have sold more than 50 million records over her lengthy, take-no-prisoners career, and continues to perform more than 100 shows a year. She released her 15th studio album, In the Spotlight, in August 2011 and just released this new video of “Strict Machine” in November. She still struts her leather and rocks it like she means it!
