Suzi Quatro In Search of ..... Patsy Cline (mp3 docu.)
- A fine documentary in spite of, not because of, the intensely irritating Ms.
Q. Sadly, any Quatro presented show is always far too much about Quatro. I
would much have preferred two hours with Harold Bradley and Ray Walker both
of whom are superb in this (when they are allowed to be)
Unfortunately we are victim to this cult of the 'personality presenter'.
SQ brings an annoying 'know it all' attitude, worsened by a trait of
regularly interrupting and finishing the interviewee's sentences way too
But please - don't let this prevent you from enjoying a programme dedicated
to a brilliant artist. Great songs used - the faves + several not so often
The abrupt ending as Sweet Dreams plays out, was exactly as the BBC
iPlayer ended (how naff) but hopefully it was only a 'credits' announcement
that was missed off. Plus, I was poised to divide the prog. at the hour
mark but there was no break, so this flows in one whole piece
Suzi Quatro In Search of ..... Patsy Cline

happened on the night of her fatal plane crash.
Contributors include Patsy's second husband Charlie Dick and their daughter
Julie; guitarist Harold Bradley, who played on all her hits; Ray Walker of
The Jordanaires [Elvis' backing singers]; and country singer Mandy Barnett,
who's played Patsy in the musical based on her life.
