Rockers Debbie Harry of Blondie and Alice Cooper, among others, will be appearing in the trailer for the film Suzi Q. Titled after the pioneering female rock artist, the said movie will be released this summer.

Taking the form of docu-film, Suzi Q is directed by Liam Firmanger and will chronicle Quatro’s career – specifically her beginnings in Detroit up to her breakthrough in 1973. Ex-Runaways frontwoman Cherie Currie says in the clip’s intro, “She was the first, and broke the ice and kicked the doors for us gals. If people have overlooked her, that’s their fault.”

Alice Cooper pitches in, saying, “A lot of girls had tried to be Suzi Quatro. But when it’s in the DNA, you can’t fake that.” Blondie’s Debby Harry also added, “This woman has so much energy, so much talent. She could have done anything.”

The film will also feature Joan Jett, the GoGo’s Kathy Valentine, Tina Weymouth, L7’s Donita Sparks, and Henry Winkler – whom Quatro played opposite in Happy Days as Leather Tuscadero.

Producer Tait Brady said in a statement: “Over the four-plus years making the film, the idea that Suzi’s status had been forgotten in the USA slowly dawned on us — because in the rest of the world everyone knows that she is the first and one of the most important trailblazers in rock and roll. And that then influenced the direction the film took — it became our mission to redress history.”
