Ann Wilson talks Heart, Chris Cornell and solo tour coming to Atlanta
For more than four decades, Ann Wilson’s voice has commanded and captivated.
She’s shrieked through “Barracuda,” crooned “Dog & Butterfly” and belted “Alone” with such power that the song nearly shattered the TV screen every time the video played on MTV in the ‘80s.
With her guitar-slinging sister Nancy, Wilson molded the female rocker archetype — and at nearly 67, she’s no less formidable.
On Tuesday, Wilson will bring a solo show to the Buckhead Theatre, where she’ll share the stage with guitarist Craig Bartock, bassist Andy Stoller and drummer Denny Fongheiser — all of whom played with Heart and/or Wilson’s other side project, the Ann Wilson Thing — as well as keyboardist Dan Walker.
On a call last week with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The River (97.1 FM), the thoughtful Wilson talked about what fans can expect at the concert, her friendship with fellow Seattle rocker Chris Cornell and the future of Heart.
