As they head into their fourth decade of making music together, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart are still going strong; with a tour, new album, box set, and autobiography on the horizon for 2012, they show no signs of slowing down. And although none of those projects are in stores yet, you can get an early glimpse at what's in store right now -- including video of a rare 1976 performance of the Heart classic 'Crazy on You.'
For Heart, the May 1977 arrival of their second album, ‘Little Queen,’ should’ve been an unqualified triumph. The Pacific Northwest band had become superstars in Canada and the U.S. during the previous year on the strength of their Mushroom Records-released debut, ‘Dreamboat Annie,’ and its hit singles, ‘Crazy On You’ and ‘Magic Man.’
When it comes singing, there's showing heart and there's showing Heart. Jordis Unga tried to do both when she turned in a hearty rendition of classic rockers' '80s power ballad 'Alone' Monday night on 'The Voice' -- and clearly won over some coaches in the process. But did she win over the hearts of the American fans watching the show at home?
A big -- dare we say heartfelt? -- happy birthday to guitarist Nancy Wilson of Heart, who turns 58 today (March 16). For more than 35 years now, Wilson and her older sister Ann have endured and adapted to many changes in the rock landscape to remain one of the more popular bands in classic rock.
They spent most of the '90s and early aughts recording sporadically as Heart, but Ann and Nancy Wilson appear to be making up for lost time: 2012 will bring plenty of live dates, a new box set, a memoir of their time in the rock 'n' roll trenches, and -- most exciting of all for longtime fans -- an album of new material.
