Wilson recently performed at the B.B. KIng tribute concert at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY (see the clip below) and has a 14-date solo tour scheduled to begin April 30 at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, NJ.
With her guitar-playing sister Nancy, they had a great run in Heart, notching eight Top-10 singles, including No. 1's "These Dreams" (1986) and "Alone" (1987).
In 2015, speaking for herself and her sister, Ann said about marijuana:
"We think it should be legal in every state in the country! It’s obviously less dangerous and harmful than alcohol, and it has many good uses for people, especially people who are very ill, but also for people who suffer from anxiety, insomnia, or pain of different types. It’s just strange to me that we’re still even talking about it."
Heart's 1975 debut Dreamboat Annie yielded the No. 9 hit "Magic Man," which featured the lyrics:
Come on home, girl
He said with a smile
You don't have to love me yet
Let's get high awhile
But try to understand
Try to understand
Try, try, try to understand
I'm a magic man
Last year, Heart reunited after a three-year hiatus for a tour from June to Ocotber. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 by Chris Cornell. Like Cornell, the Wilson sisters - Ann, 69, is four years older than Nancy - grew up in Washington State.
Surprisingly, Heart have never won a Grammy, despite being nominated for:
• Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for Heart (1985)
• Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "Alone" (1987)
• Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for Bad Animals (1987)
• Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You" (1990).
