For decades, sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson have been part of rock and roll history. From the 1970s, when they delivered mega hits like "Crazy on You" and "Barracuda", to the 1980s and 1990s when they conquered radio and MTV with songs like "These Dreams" and "Alone", to 2010 when they scored a Billboard top ten hit with the release of their album "Red Velvet Car", and up to today with their 2011 nomination to the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, Heart has always been, first and foremost, a showcase for these talented women. But as women, Ann and Nancy have faced down different challenges than many of their male counterparts, with questions about body image, relationships, and their place in the rock pantheon that sometimes took precedence over the power of their music and their success. Now, with the help of critically acclaimed and bestselling music biographer Charles R. Cross, and timed to release with their latest album and tour, Ann and Nancy share their story.
Finally, Heart fans will learn the truth about the relationships that inspired memorable songs like "Magic Man", and the turmoil in the band when those relationships fell apart, a family bond strong enough to conquer all, the struggle both women face of being a devoted mother and a touring musician at the same time, and a rollercoaster relationship with fame, here is the groundbreaking story of two women who broke gender barriers, and broke all the rules about rock music.
