Nancy Wilson Hints At A Heart Reunion
Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson has suggested a reunion with bandmate and sister Ann Wilson could happen.
“I've gotta say, it's looking really good for a Heart reunion tour," Wilson told the Let There Be Talk podcast. “There's a big offer up there on the table. Me and Ann are talking, so we'll keep talking.”
The band went on hiatus after Ann's husband Dean Wetter was accused of assaulting Nancy's teenage sons backstage at a Heart concert in 2016. (Wetter later pleaded guilty to charges stemming from the incident.)
Nancy had described the final shows of the tour as "excruciating," and admitted she considered going home rather than continue performing alongside Ann.
Still, even while they weren't talking, both sisters admitted they wanted to reconcile — they just weren't sure if they could do it.
“I've been sort of [trying] for a while, but she was kind of busy and, I think, scared to talk," Nancy said. "And I kind of said, 'I'm not ever gonna confront you about anything, but there is this huge offer on the table, so we should talk — just the two of us.' So we're in that process right now. It's kind of exciting.”
Last month, Ann acknowledged she and Nancy were talking again but she insisted money wouldn't be a factor in a reunion.
"I will never agree to going back out there in a mechanical, money grab-type way," she told Q104.3 New York's Jim Kerr. "At this point in my life, I'm not going to do that. I'm going to make every minute count and make it real. So we'll talk and we'll figure out if we can figure out a fresh cool way.”
Ann added: “Heart was conceived in an atmosphere of idealism. That’s how it has to be re-conceived now for me to be interested in doing it. So it's possible.”
