HEART Guitarist NANCY WILSON Talks "Borrowed" Guitar Riff That Became "Barracuda" - "We Saw The Guys Later And They Were Pissed"

Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson recently spoke with Gear Talk and revealed the classic band and song that inspired Heart's timeless hit, "Barracuda". She also discusses going from being a dinner club band to supporting Rod Stewart in Montreal.

"We are thrilled to be taking the stage together for the first time in three years at Love Rocks NYC at The Beacon Theatre on March 7th!, reads a message from Ann & Nancy Wilson. "All proceeds will benefit @GodsLoveNYC, which will cook and home-deliver over 1.8 million medically tailored meals this year to New Yorkers living with severe illness. Thanks to @johnvarvatos, @gwilliamson79 and all the sponsors for making this amazing night happen."

Love Rocks NYC is a marquee event that unites new and existing supporters of God’s Love We Deliver and allows people to celebrate their passion for this beloved charity through music - the universal language that speaks to us all. For one amazing night each year, the stage of the historic Beacon Theatre is electrified with world-class talent - brought together to support God’s Love.

Other artists schedule to perform include Robert Plant, Sheryl Crow, Buddy Guy, Hozier, Billy F Gibbons, and many more. This year's event is sold out.

Heart - Ann & Nancy Wilson - will return to the road in 2019 for the first time in three years with their massive Love Alive cross-country summer tour. Produced by Live Nation, the expansive 39-city outing by the trend-setting, multiple-platinum Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame legends kicks off Tuesday, July 9th at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, MO and will make stops in Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Denver and more, before wrapping September 9th at the famous Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA.
