Musical Interlude: Stumblin' In (1979)

Suzi Quatro might be known to most folks for her on-again, off-again gig as musician Leather Tuscadero on Happy Days, but by the time Garry Marshall brought her onto the show, Quatro was already a well known singer and bassist.

However, as it turns out, her duet with Smokie's Chris Norman, "Stumblin' In", which peaked at #4 on the Hot 100 and hit #1 in Australia in 1979, was her last Top 40 hit.

Co-author Mike Chapman is better known for his work as a producer with other acts, such as Blondie. Suzi Quatro had also worked with songwriter-producer Mickie Most, who'd produced Herman's Hermits' hits in the 60's.
