Heart is still kicking ass

They had a couple of unfortunate records a few years ago (HEY WE ALL HAVE BILLS TO PAY) but Ann and Nancy are still genius level musicians

2. Their music lives on but the sisters no longer perform together

 

From the Wikipedia article about the band:

On the morning of August 27, 2016, Ann's husband Dean Wetter was arrested and subsequently pleaded guilty to assaulting Nancy's 16-year-old twin sons after the boys had left the door to his RV open. The incident took place during a Heart performance at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Washington, the previous night.[93][94]

Although the band played the remaining 2016 tour dates that were already booked, the Wilson sisters only spoke to one another through third parties for the remainder of the tour.[95] Following the end of the tour in October 2016, the sisters opted to tour with their own side-project bands.[95] The pair's relationship was strained by the incident; an April 2017 article in Rolling Stone reported that although they remain on amicable terms, they had not spoken to one another since the 2016 tour ended, and only sporadically contacted one another through text messaging.[95]

In January 2017, Nancy formed a new band, Roadcase Royale, with singer Liv Warfield and Heart members Ben Smith (drummer), Dan Rothchild (bass), and Chris Joyner (keyboards).[96] Later that month, Ann announced a solo tour, which included Heart guitarist Craig Bartock along with some other non-Heart musicians.[97]

In April 2017, Ann described Heart as being on hiatus, although both sisters claim the band has not permanently disbanded.[95]

5. Somewhere In My CD Collection. . .

. . .i have a bootleg of a concert they did in Vancouver (i think) where the entire set was Zeppelin covers.

Sound quality if pretty good, and the band KILLS it! And boy, does Ann sound great singing those songs.
