Blind Items Revealed #5

September 20, 2018

Look for this reforming band to go in an entirely different direction for their reboot. It is a permanent A list group that might be replacing the A+ list male with an A+ list female. That is the band's first choice anyway.

Heartbreakers/Tom Petty/Ann Wilson

Love me some Ann Wilson. Chick's got massive pipes.

That being said-- interesting concept.

Well I had the Wilson part right and a lot of the guessers had the group right, but I had LedZep and they had Stevie Nicks. I like their choice better than the Heartbreakers choice.

PERFECT

Moose said...

Love Ann, love the Heartbreakers. But no, this is not a good idea at all. Ann should be looking to patch things up with her sister and reform Heart, and the Heartbreakers just need to move on, because Petty was the reason for the band.

Sd Auntie said...

Saw Heart in the 80's and boy can she sing!! Excellent choice

Do Tell said...

They'd better come up with a new name then. INXS didn't work well with a replacement, and Queen is not Queen without Freddie Mercury.

Bas said...

I went to Hearts last concert when they were on tour. Ann left the stage for a bit, and my friend said she was probably taking a smoke break. I just looked at her like she was nuts and just pointed out that someone with a voice like Ann's probably doesn't smoke.

I love Heart and Stevie and the Heartbreakers.
Sure miss Tom.

LooksLikeCRicci said...

Heart is my jam. I'm glad I'm not alone in that one.

Sorry, Tom Petty was the attraction, I'd rather see local bands do covers.

Lonely Bastard said...

Nancy Wilson still looks amazing. Definitely top of the GILF charts.

Didnt Nancy's kids and Anne have some sort of major 'police called' ruckus recently?

Guesser said...

@Lonely Bastard, Anne 's husband beat the crap out of Nancy's kids,Anne sides with Hubby. That's why they are estranged.

Queen without Freddie Mercury is a very profitable touring act, whatever you think of their authenticity.

I saw them with Adam Lambert at Madison Square Garden and they were excellent, except for overlong solos by both Brian May and Roger Taylor.

Not a good idea. Not a slight on Anne's talent but that band was Tom Petty.
I'd be more intrigued by a Page/Wilson tour tbh

Sara, Making It Work said...

They should get Lucinda Williams. Ann Wilson is badass but does not fit at all. Lucinda would be seamless.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Love the Lucinda Wililams idea!

If Ann Wilson takes over for Tom Petty (or Stevie Nicks or Lucinda Williams), I will be fine with it if they come up with a new name--new band, new identity, etc. But I doubt they will, any more than what's being passed off as "Fleetwood Mac" did.

I find the Ann idea intriguing but Holy Shit Lucinda would truly rock the Heartbreakers more in the style of Petty.

TownChica said...

+1

greenfrog said...

I like the idea, but they are both old as dirt. Do the same type of music circa 1977...I actually think it is a good match.

Freckles said...

I prefer Ann to Lucinda. I've seen both in person

Cee Kay said...

70s Heart rules. 80s Heart sucked. I used to feel bad about thinking that, but then I saw Ann Wilson say they sucked in the 80s too (interference from idiot music industry execs) so now I'm proud that I hate 80s Heart.

TC said...

I love Ann Wilson but this doesn't seem like a good match to me. I could see her fronting Zeppelin, but this just seems like oil and water.

I don't care much for Nicks but she has a vocal range that would seem to be more of a fit the Heartbreakers style of playing

GentleBreeze said...

Ann had a gastric bypass and was given some shit about adopting children because she had a rocknroll lifestyle. She's defo got some chops, but Tom Petty didn't have chops - so...

kelli grrrl said...

Ann Wilson could read the phone book and it’d sound better than most of today’s singers! Not sure she’s the best fit for the Heartbreakers, but she’s such a force of nature, I’d absolutely give it a listen!

AngelBear said...

Tom Petty is irreplaceable

bowler_chick said...

Still think it's Ann but with Soundgarden as the band.

I get my crack my smack my bitch right here said...

+1 bowler_chick This actually seems a better fit to me.

VDOVault said...

So glad this is 100% Stevie Nicks free.

Either Ann or Lucinda or both fronting the Heartbreakers would be worth me checking out.
