Songfacts®:

  • Most of the material on Suzi Quatro's No Control album consists of collaborations with her son from her first marriage, Richard Tuckey. "Don't Do Me Wrong" was their first attempt at writing and recording something together.
  • Speaking in a Songfacts interview with Quatro, she said the collaboration was "unexpected." The rocker explained that for many years Richard "has done his own thing" as a guitarist in bands. Back in 2018 he came to her and said, "I want to write some stuff with you." So so asked him what he'd got.

    Quatro continued: "He showed me one particular song - which was just a riff - which became 'Don't Do Me Wrong.' It was the first thing we went into the studio with and it worked so well I said, "Let's keep going." We spent time at the house here writing back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, and all of a sudden, we were doing an album, and it started to take on a life of its own. All the best things, you don't plan - they just happen. Life happens."
