Patti Quatro is HOT - EOF Style Divinity

We’ve always had a thing for Patti Quatro.

The statuesque brunette of the classic Detroit girl group, The Pleasure Seekers, and sister to Suzi Quatro, Patti is a triumphant figure who put the power of beauty, style, and girl power to the forefront of our culture, and helped propelled the things we take for granted in our contemporary world.

Patti Quatro Ericson on July 25, 2011

Thank the heavens for E.O.F. correspondent John Wisnewski, who got the chance to ask this Girl Group maven some questions about her captivating life.

 

JOHN: What was the first band that you were in, Patti?

PATTI:First band I was in was The Pleasure Seekers, started in 1964 when I was 16 years old and Suzi was 14, in Detroit Rock City. We grew our talent jamming with all our home boys…..Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, MC5, Alice Cooper, Iggy, etc…….all honing our craft as we played the teen circuits together.

JOHN: When did you join Fanny?

PATTI: Joined Fanny in 1973 at Xmas time…….first gig was the Whiskey at which John Lennon saw our debut, and we did “Oh Darling” for him.

JOHN: Patti, Fanny paved the way for future female fronted groups-  does Fanny receive recognition for this?   

PATTI: All our roots bands receive recognition constantly from magazines, interviews, fans, etc…..people who appreciate us forging the road for women.    Actually, Suzi and I started the earliest at 14 and 16 in Detroit……earliest heavy rocking all female band…1964.   Others started later, and were more soft/girly sounding.

We had that Detroit grit energy from growing up jamming with Nugent, Alice, Iggy, MC5,Seger, etc. We all paved the way…..me and my sister and our roots bands, as well as Fanny. Suzi and I and our bands were recognized in Detroit/Michigan’s Hall of Fame awards last year and the year before.

Hopefully Fanny will be at some point. But, Suzi has had more than a few honours for her contributions.

JOHN: Have yourself and Suzi Quatro ever played any live appearances together?
PATTI: We just played together when she was awarded her woman of valor award from MEOW in March….a huge conference here in austin, Tx and we played together for first time since 1990’s.

JOHN: Of all the performers and artists that you knew, were there any that you were very impressed by?

PATTI: Bob Seger — his humility, songwriting talent.

Jeff Beck — his pure joy of his instrument and support of women musicians in an era when women did not rock guitars and till today.

Jimmy Page — his enormous creativity on his instrument — pure talent.

Vintage Summer Style Inspiration – Bikinis, Beaches, Babes, and Bond!

martine-beswick-Bond vintage- swimsuit style summer inspiration

Canada is infamous for its cold weather, but we were shocked to wake up to snowfall in April this morning! Needles to say, it had us yearning for those days of blissful sunshine and relaxing on the beach.

Sometimes we use inspiration to invoke a certain spirit to amp up our day, but on days like this, inspiration can be used to transport oneself to new worlds. In our case, we were looking for much hotter destinations to take us away from this bitter cold.

This being said, we easily found ourselves taken away to the beach, and who better to spend a day at the beach with than the impenetrable, secret agent, 007 himself – Bond. James Bond.

And if you’re friends with Bond, you’re likely to rub shoulders and elbows (maybe more) with any number of his beautiful beach bunny sweethearts. But don’t get too cozy in the sand just yet. Some of these beach bod bombshells are not to be trusted, and some of them have a bark that’s worse than their bite. So maybe best to just admire from the distance and let Bond do the dirty work . . .

From Honey Rider to Agent XXX, Bond has had more than his handful of beautiful women, which could account for his own impeccable sense of style. He is a man that knows it pays to look your best!

So enough chit-chat! Feel the sand between your toes, and lets hit the waves!

Can you feel the heat already?

Vintage Surf Style: E.O.F. Remembers Annette Funicello . . .

Annette funicello muscle beach party

This week we were saddened to learn about the passing of 1960s surf film star and legend, Annette Funicello. Before Victoria Justice, Miley Cyrus, and even Britney Spears there was Annette Funicello who epitomized teen stardom throughout the 1950s and 60s.

Growing up in public is especially hard sometimes . . .

-Annette Funicello

annette funicello micky mouse club days

Born October 22, 1942, Annette Funicello is best known as a mouseketeer on “The Mickey Mouse Club”, and rising to teen stardom alongside pal Frankie Avalon (check out “Teen Idol Worship“)in a series of popular beach movies including Beach Party (1963), Muscle Beach Party (1964), Bikini Beach (1964), Pajama Party (1964), Beach Blanket Bingo (1965) and How to Stuff a Wild Bikini (1965). These films would help create that mythic ideal of that 1960s surf rock beach paradise you are always dreaming of . . .

The Teen Dream Queen rocked it out in a bikini with a surf board surrounded by musclebound gods to become an icon of the surf lifestyle that the entire globe looked and aspired to. Granted, it was a more wholesome version of real California surf culture, it is still a cornerstone of popular culture to this day.

We love her sexy and sassy looks, and wanted to remember her with a gallery of some of our favourite looks and images of this surf style legend. Annette Funicello passed away at age 70 on April 8, 2013.
