It’s “harder to keep a band together” than a marriage

According to Heart rocker Ann Wilson, a band is harder to maintain than a marriage.

The singer compared the two during a recent appearance on the Mistress Carrie’s Podcast.

Wilson, who has been married to Dean Wetter since 2015, was asked if it was harder to keep a marriage or a band together. “I think it’s harder to keep a band together – in my experience,” she said with a laugh (transcribed by Blabbermouth). “And I’ve only been married once and I still love him and I feel good about it. It’s harder to keep a band together because other people come in, like wives and important other people, talking in the ears of your bandmates and maybe saying things that oppose them to you or the unity of the band. It’s really hard. It’s kind of a revolving door with a group.

The elder Wilson’s comments follow an announcement from her younger sister, Nancy, who revealed plans to tour later this year without Ann, under the moniker Nancy Wilson’s Heart. Lead vocals will come from the Seattle native and Season 8 finalist of The voiceKimberly Nichole, who also performed on Broadway in 2018 for a limited engagement of Rocktopia. Nancy said Heart’s songs will be performed in a different way with Nichole, and there will be “no comparison to Ann singing or Kimberly singing those same songs, just because they’re apples and oranges; you can’t compare that stuff. So I think it’s a way of letting them know that it’s not just Nancy Wilson from Heart doing anything, but it’s Nancy Wilson’s Heart, where you’re gonna hear more Heart stuff.

For now, the Wilson sisters remain on separate paths. “Heart had a big offer on the table last year for a bigger tour, but Ann wasn’t interested in dating my lineup of guys we’d dated before,” Nancy noted. “She’s got a new list of guys she wanted me to join. And I sort of [thought], I don’t really know them and I don’t have any loyalty for someone like that yet. So I just shone and decided that when I go out with my new singer Kimberly, I could telegraph people who come on the show that they’re going to hear Heart songs in a whole different way.”

Ann recently released a cover of Eurythmics’ 1986 song “Missionary Man”, featured on her upcoming solo album fierce happinesswhich will be released on April 29.

Meanwhile, Nancy will join The Go-Go’s Melissa Etheridge, Kathy Valentine and Orianthi as the co-leader of the first-ever women-only Rock ‘N’ Roll Fantasy Camp over Mother’s Day weekend (6-12). May 9) in Los Angeles. .
