Wiser Than You

Album: If You Knew Suzi (1978)

  • Lyrics
  • In her autobiography, Unzipped, Quatro says this is "a song I wrote based on the way I felt about DC." She credits it to Quatro/Tuckey, 1978. Len Tuckey was her lead guitarist; they married in 1976 and divorced in 1992.

    DC was her first serious lover; they met when she was seventeen and playing in a band called The Pleasure Seekers. He was nine years older than her, and married, which is usually a recipe for disaster, and this case was no exception, but she was left with one special memory. They first made love on her eighteenth birthday, and, she said, "I wasn't a virgin, having done the deed with Chris, but I might as well have been. Nothing was ever like this. I never gave myself so completely to anyone ever again." >>
