Following their Heart, one more time
Ann and Nancy Wilson return to their rock roots: Vancouver, where they formed the band that would sell 30 million albums
By Graeme McRano
Special To The Sun
When Ann Wilson hitchhiked from Seattle to Vancouver in 1971, she couldn't have predicted that the band she was about to form with her sweetheart, Mike Fisher -already here dodging the Vietnam War draft -would, over the next several decades, sell more than 30-million albums worldwide and produce 21 top-40 hits.
Why would she? She was just following her heart.
A trio of Yanks soon followed: Steve Fossen and Mike's brother, Roger; and Ann's sister, Nancy, who would subsequently become romantically involved with Roger.
So, fair to say that fluttering hearts found the first beats of Heart.
"Oh my God, coming back to Vancouver is just about the same as coming back to Seattle," says Ann. "I call them both about equal because we started the band up in Vancouver, and everything just kind of went out from there in the beginning.
"I'm really looking forward to it. I'm kind of on pins and needles about it, because that was home, where we were all poverty-stricken and playing in the basement learning about everything, I mean that was our school, our rock school up there."
Heart's also got a new album called Red Velvet Car, that's slated to drop in July.
"Songwriting used to be really hard for me," Ann says. "I don't know why. I guess I was really shy and was scared to tell people my ideas, afraid of being judged. But now, especially on this last album, working with Nancy and [producer] Ben Mink, who's from Vancouver, songwriting just became really easy and fun.
"Now we have these ten songs. And I love them. Some of them are real tearjerkers, because they're very, very personal. So it was a feat to pull them out, but it's great to listen to them.
"It's really been an incredible thing. It's taken a lot of luck and timing and all the people who have helped us out over the years. And we work really hard. But I tell you what, there's a big reward in that. When we're touring, when we're up there on stage, and afterwards, when you've done it, that's the best I feel all day.
"That's being in the mix. In the bread dough."

Band shows it still has heart
By Adrian Chamberlain
Ann Wilson had the right idea. Addressing 3,000-plus of the faithful in Victoria Monday night, she congratulated us Canucks on winning the U.S./Canada Olympic hockey game.
“It was awesome and boy, it had to go that way,” said Heart’s lead vocalist, resplendent in a purple velvet jacket, shaking her trademark mane of black curls.
And then, fittingly, the band launched into Kick It Out, a hard-driving girl-power rocker about living life to its fullest and other fun stuff.

Abbynew.com - Heart has postponed its show at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.
The performance, which was originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 10, will now be in the fall to coincide with their western tour.
A new date is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
When it is, fans will have two weeks from the date of the announcement to receive a refund.
Tickets from the March 10 show will be honoured at the fall performance.
According to Heart Managment from the Heart message boards - Due to it being schedule too close to the Olympics and the size of the venue (and how close it is to Vancouver), this show is being canceled.
Please contact the venue regarding your ticket purchases.... it may be rescheduled for later in the year.

Tonight Heart takes the stage at EMP|SFM's Sky Church in Seattle, and will be performing songs from their new album, Red Velvet Car. This show is also being recorded for a DVD. So all the Heart Mongers that are going better put on their smiles and get ready to rock for the camera!
According to the Times Colonist Heart just completed work on their upcoming album. Red Velvet Car was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Vancouver's Ben Mink. Wilson says most of the disc's 10 tunes are "really hard rock or uptempo." (yes!!!)
Radio 2.0 has listed Red Velvet Car on their site with a release date sometime in May.
Abbotsford News reported that the new album is something their long-time fans and newer listeners will appreciate. The 10-song album has seven up-tempo, rock-heavy tunes, and three ballads.
While their goals have shifted from gold records to finding happiness, they are hoping they still have what it takes to create music “that gets people off.”
Thanks Heart Monger Seattleboy for the scoops! You can also read about it on the Heartlinker.
