Suzi Rocked in Marriage Here
Suzi Quatro married longterm guitarist Len Tuckey here
Location: Collier Row Road, Romford, RM5 2BA
Description: Suzi Quatro (born Susan Kay Quatrocchio in June 3, 1950 in Detroit, Michigan) is a 'rock siren'...an American singer-songwriter, musician, radio personality and actress.
Quatro began her musical career at the age of fourteen when she played bass in the all-female band the 'Pleasure Seekers' and 'Cradle' with her sisters Patti, Nancy, and Arlene.
She moved to the UK in 1971 after being discovered in Detroit by record producer Mickie Most, who produced The Animals, Jeff Beck, Lulu and Donovan. By this time he had started his own label RAK Records, which made stars of Hot Chocolate and Mud.
Quatro's first single 'Rolling Stone' made number one in Portugal before Mickie Most introduced Quatro to the songwriting and production team Nicky Chinn/Mike Chapman. Her second single 'Can the Can' (1973) was a number one hit throughout Europe and Australia and broke Suzi as an international Rock sensation. It was followed up by three further hits: '48 Crash'(1973), 'Daytona Demon' (1973) and 'Devil Gate Drive' (1974) all on RAK Records. Her first two albums were also European and Australian successes.
So what's with this church... well this is where she married her then band-mate and longtime guitarist Len Tuckey on the 12th December 1976.
Although they had two children together, they eventually divorced in 1992 and she married concert promoter Rainer Haas in 1993.
And she's still rocking!
