Suzi Quatro threatened to punch Angus Young when he "piched [her] a**".

The 'Can the Can' rocker has never been afraid to confront men who tried to tough her inappropriately but after calling out the AC/DC guitarist, she knew he was embarassed enough not to do it again.

She told the Sunday Times magazine: "I've been in bands since I was a kid and I know that the world — especially men — has a fixed idea about women in bands. We’re easy.

"Back in the 1970s it happened all the time. Some guy would start grabbing my a**. Or worse. A knee in the b******* soon set them right.

"There’s only one man who got away with it and that was Angus Young from AC/DC. This was many, many years ago and we were appearing on the same show. I was walking upstairs and felt someone pinch my a**.

"I turned around, fist raised, and he went bright red. 'I’m so sorry,' he stammered. I said,'I’ll let you off this once. Do it again and you won’t be playing guitar for a couple of months.' ”

The 73-year-old rocker learned how to "handle herself" at a young age and was always comfortable partying with male musicians.

She said: "I grew up in Detroit, which is a tough city. I wasn’t even old enough to be there, but I was hanging out in nightclubs with Iggy Pop and Alice Cooper.

" I learnt how to handle myself. Wanna challenge me to a drinking contest? Get ready for a long night.

"Thankfully, I never got into drugs. The first time I smoked pot, it just made me more speedy. I remember somebody saying to my friend, 'Next time, don’t bring Suzi.' ”

But Suzi had her limits and admitted she felt so "guilty" after trashing a hotel room, she didn't want to do it again.

She said: "I did once trash a hotel room. Slashed the bed, sprayed beer on the walls, threw the television into the swimming pool. Damn, I felt so guilty the next day that I never did it again."
