What A Way To Die !




Guys, stay calm.
The Detroit garage band the Pleasure Seekers originally comprised sisters Suzi, Patti and Arlene Quatro, the daughters of jazz musician Art Quatro. The group began while the siblings were all still in their teens, quickly transcending novelty status by writing their own material and playing their own instruments; they made their debut in 1966 with the local hit "Never Thought You'd Leave Me," released on the Hideout label.
Around 1969, the Pleasure Seekers rechristened themselves Cradle, a move which also heralded a harder-edged sound; by the early 1970s, however, the trio disbanded, with Suzi going on to fame as a solo performer (as well as co-starring on the hit sitcom Happy Days as the legendary Leather Tuscadero) while Patti joined the California band Fanny.

Wow, this stuff is incredible! I recognize "What a Way to Die"--I think some band did a cover of it back in the mid-90's, but I don't know who it was. Keep up the good work.
