The estrangement of sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart began with an assault on Nancy’s twin teenage sons by Ann’s husband on a tour bus in 2016. Ann’s husband Dean Welter wound up pleading guilty to two lesser assault charges to avoid jail time, but the rift separated the girls who together built one of the most successful rock bands of the 70s and 80s.
Last year Ann told Yahoo! Music “What Nancy and I are doing right now is we’re working on our friendship and on our sisterhood,” she explained. “The band, that’s something else again. That’ll come and go and evolve and shape. But we’ll be sisters long after everything else is gone. So we’re working on our own relationship right now. … Talking, letting water run under the bridge. Just cool down. Everybody chill.”
And it looks now like we may get a Heart reunion in 2019. Ann said in a recent interview:
“Just about everyone I’ve talked to today has asked me to comment on this rumor that there’s a HEART reunion next year…Nancy and I will be getting together soon to talk and see if we have any ideas on that… I will never agree to going back out there in a mechanical, money-grab-type way; at this point in my life, I’m not gonna do that — I’m gonna make every minute count and make it real. So we’ll talk and we’ll figure out if we can figure out a fresh, new, cool way.”
Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Ann and Nancy can come to an agreement that satisfies all parties and gets our beloved HEART back together again.
