Glam Queen Suzi Quatro has released Macho Man, the second single from her upcoming album No Control, which is out on March 29. This follows the release of No Soul/No Control last month. 

"Everyone wants to know who the macho man is," says Quatro. "I have known a few. They don’t last long. 

"This started with a riff from my son Richard. It’s a real head banger from start to finish, in fact it’s a real Suzi song!"

"I grew up in a four girls/one boy family, so I personally never thought about (rock as) a boys' club,” Quatro tells Billboard. "I have never been concerned with gender past, present or future - which I guess in hindsight is why I was able to do what I finally did and have success around the world... and get taken seriously.

"There was no guarantee this crazy girl with the leather jacket and bass guitar was going to be able to make it doing what I did, but I did. And after that it was definitely easier for girls, which I am happy about."

Quatro is currently on tour in Australia, and will return to the UK in April for a 10-date tour (dates below).
