Going to see Heart on Thursday. I'm psych'd!
But didn't they suck when they were popular--has something changed?
Ann Wilson had one of the clearest and most powerful voices in rock, the music was not one-dimensional like so many others, the tunes have stood the test of time well, and the band's musical talents were first class. Few people I know who like rock, did not rock to Heart!
No doubt age has been little if any kinder to them than any other classic rock band of that era, but from everything I've heard, they still put on one hell of a show!
Saw them at Massey Hall maybe 18 months ago and both Ann and Nancy killed it. Great singing, great playing. I'd say Ann is singing better than ever.
They did a great job on the R&R Hall of Fame show, and nice to see the reunion of the original lineup (plus Roger Fisher's replacement, Howard Leese), if only for one song, and even if Roger Fisher tried as hard as he could to upstage the sisters.
I don't know if they're good or bad singers, they really were too minor a group for any of us to pay attention to, but the few songs I heard (their one or two hits), man were those bad.
