Shortly before Heart's '80s resurgence, Nancy Wilson played "beautiful girl in car" in the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High. She had no dialogue, but did manage to marry the screenwriter, Cameron Crowe, in 1986. They had twin boys in 2000 and separated in 2008.
Ann and Nancy Wilson are sisters.
Ann Wilson had a tumultuous affair with their sound manager, Mike Fisher - they lived together for nine years. At the same time, Nancy was with Fisher's brother Roger, who was the group's lead guitarist. In 1979, Ann was the one to fire Roger from the band. (thanks, Jessica - Cleveland, OH)
They used to own a studio in Seattle called Bad Animals. Soundgarden, REM, and Pearl Jam have all recorded there.
Ann and Nancy appeared on the soundtrack for the movie Singles as The Lovemongers. The movie was directed by Cameron Crowe.
Ann once worked for Kentucky Fried Chicken. She thought of sending a platinum record to the restaurant's mascot, Colonel Sanders, because if she hadn't been fired, the group might not have been formed.
Their 1995 live album The Road Home was produced by Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, who specifically requested they not cover any Led Zeppelin songs. They did, however, cover Joni Mitchell and Elton John, not to mention some of their originals. Early on, the band played a lot of Zeppelin songs.
When the band formed, they were known as The Army, and later White Heart. Nancy Wilson joined after she finished college in 1974 and the band was re-christened Heart.
The band moved to moved to Vancouver, British Columbia after manager Mike Fisher found out he was to be drafted by the United States Army. They signed a recording contract with Vancouver's Mushroom Records, and in 1975 released their debut progressive concept album Dreamboat Annie, which featured the hits "Crazy On You," "Magic Man" and the title track.
In 1977, the band gained popularity with the hits "Barracuda," "Kick It Out" and "Little Queen." Their third album Magazine was stillborn following the demise of Mushroom Records but was saved from the scrap heap by CBS Records who accommodated the band by reissuing it along with a now rare picture disc. The owner of Mushroom was so angry that he released Magazine to keep their Little Queen album from selling well. A judge ruled that he had to allow the band to remix the album and rerecord parts of it. Heart wanted it completely removed from the market.
Carmassi had previously been a member of Sammy Hagar's backing band before joining Heart in 1981. Andes had played bass for Spirit.
