The next twelve months will be busy ones for the band. Heart, as the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will have a definitive vinyl box set by this time next year; Heart will perform at least eighty-five concerts by the end of this one; and lead singer. Ann Wilson will perform her first-ever solo tour this Fall. Now in their fifth decade of making music together, this remarkable extended momentum for Heart ‘s career cardio health is possible in part because of the huge popularity of their biggest seller. Heart, which was released thirty years ago this week.
This collection yielded hit after hit including “What About Love?”,”Never”, “Nothing at All”, “If Looks Could Kill”, and Heart’s first #1 ( sung by guitarist Nancy Wilson )“These Dreams”. ( Spoiler alert: you’ll need a whole box of tissues when you hear Nancy’s and Ann’s story about that song’s dedication ).
