The bass-slinging singer and songwriter made her first mark with the Pleasure Seekers and Cradle during the ’60s in her native Detroit, but she really connected after moving to England during the early ’70s, putting on leather and working with producers Mickie Most, Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman on records acknowledged as an influence for a slew of others — most notably the Runaways. That Joan Jett was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2015 rankles Quatro — though, she’s quick to note, not at Jett’s expense.

“(Jett) deserves to be in — she’s an excellent artist — but it’s disgusting that I’m not,” Quatro, who’s preparing for the March 29 release of her new album, No Control, tells Billboard. “I’m a real stickler for the truth, and I’m upset that history is being rewritten. I was first, right? I was there before anybody else had a twinkle in their eye — that’s a fact of life. I’m happy that I opened a door because that door needed to be opened. I’m so proud of that, and I get thanked by everybody — all the girls, they all say ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you…’ I said in in very early interviews there would be loads of (women) after me and there were. I’m happy about that, absolutely.

“I just don’t like being ignored because that’s not correct. It’s a big fault. I hear from a lot of people — they say, ‘What? You’re not in it?!’ No — and my biggest fan is, and that’s not right. You can’t rewrite history just to suit your organization.”

“So my feelings are hurt,” Quatro says of the Rock Hall exclusion. “I’ve been very polite about it for many years, and now I don’t want to be polite anymore. It doesn’t make sense. The truth is the truth, history is history, the timeline is the timeline. I need to be in that Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
