FILM and music fans were treated to an evening with rock royalty this week.

Suzi Quatro appeared on stage at The Forum Music Centre, Darlington, to chat to fans following the screening of a documentary about her life.

The film, titled Suzi Q, charts the life and career of the Detroit-born musician, from her early years in the States through her rise to stardom in the 1970s with hits like Can The Can and Devil Gate Drive, her role in Happy Days and her later career – which is still going strong.

After the film, which included contributions from the likes of Debbie Harry, Joan Jett and Alice Cooper, the trailblazing rocker took part in a Q&A to discuss her life and music legacy.

James Watson, who arranged the event for Darlington Film Club, said: “Suzi was amazing. She had the audience in her grasp, told them stories that weren’t in the documentary and answered all questions truthfully and honestly.

“Spending time with her was a real honour. For someone who has sold over 55 million records, she is a very humble person and had so much time for her fans and everyone on the night. We all loved her.”

He added: “I’ve offered The Forum as a tour warm up show, fingers crossed she takes us up on the offer.”

Darlington Film Club shows cult and classic movies at 7.30pm every Monday night at The Forum, on Borough Road. Admission is £3, with free popcorn.
