WATCH: Heart borrowed the riff for Barracuda
Nancy Wilson recently sat down with Loudwire for a candid on-camera conversation.
The Heart sister shared how The Beatles inspired her to play music and how she had a particular attraction to 'I Feel Fine'.
However what really stood out in the interview was Wilson recalling a European tour where Heart opened for Nazareth. She goes on to admit that they would eventually "borrow" the riff from Nazareth's cover of Joni Mitchell's 'This Flight Tonight' for 'Barracuda'.
"Nazareth had a hit with this Joni Mitchell song that they covered called ‘This Flight Tonight’ that kind of had that riff, so we kind of borrowed that and we made it into ‘Barracuda.’"
Heart plays Montreal's Bell Centre on July 16, 2019. Sheryl Crow and Elle King will open for the band. Tickets are available at evenko.ca.
