Nancy’s Turn: A Short Interview With Nancy Wilson

7 27

I guess as far as publicity goes, Nancy Wilson has always seemed to be the quiet one. Maybe I just don’t watch the right TV shows or read the right magazines and blogs, but I have seen heart more coverage of sister Ann’s activities through the years by far.

This time we get to hear just a little bit from Nancy in this short interview from the Press Enterprise newspaper as the sisters prepare to perform with their band, Heart, in Costa Mesa, California.

Don’t expect a whole lot of juicy Nancy Wilson info from this one. It’s more like a reporter got a minute or two to walk alongside her and ask her a few questions at the airport or something.

Or, maybe Nancy Wilson just isn’t that talkative. Who knows?

She talks a little bit about her husband, director Cameron Crowe and about working with sister Ann in the early years and also about what they are working on these days.

The sisters are reported to be re-recording their debut album, Dreamboat Annie for some kind of DirecTV special.

Allow me to be the first one to wish them luck making that album sound any better. Even though it was recorded in the 1970’s, and from what I have heard, wasn’t even recorded with top-of-the-line equipment of the day, it is one of my absolute favorite albums for the engineering. I just love the sound of that album. Just fantastic.

    That interview is a bit dated for when it was featured on PE.Com. The Dreamboat Annie Direct TV thing wasn’t a re-recording of DBA – Heart performed the album live in sequence in LA back in April. It was filmed for a Direct TV broadcast feature, the first in a series called “Classic Albums Live” and will be released on DVD in October, I believe. As far as being the quieter of the two sisters, I can tell you that you definately haven’t been catching the right interviews. Nancy’s media has increased a lot, especiall since she’s done the scores for Cameron Crowe’s movies.

    Take Heart,

    Well I guess if the interview was dated, that was put on PE.com in a somewhat misleading way. It sure reads as if it is current and with the list of performances at the bottom of the article — one of them being listed as taking place “today” — it sure has the flavor of a current article.

    Thanks for the clarification on the Dream Boat Annie thing and if you have any pointers to interviews that show us a “less quiet” Nancy Wilson, feel free to post them here.

    Thanks, Andrea.

    It’s good to see that poor Nancy can hold her own during an interview. 🙂
