Both couples controlled the band. In 1979, the relationships ended; Ann stated that Michael had fallen in love with another woman and they parted. Wilson married Dean Wetter in April 2015. The pair dated briefly in the 1980s before rekindling their relationship years later.

Ann Wilson Young

Ann Dustin Wilson was born in San Diego, California. Her father was a major in the U.S. Marine Corps. Due to her father’s military career, the Wilson family moved frequently.They lived near American military facilities in Panama and Taiwan before settling in Seattle, Washington, in the early 1960s. To maintain a sense of home no matter where in the world they were residing, the Wilsons turned to music. “On Sunday we’d have pancakes and opera,” her sister Nancy Wilson recalled. “My dad would be conducting in the living room. We’d turn it way up and rock. There was everything from classical music to Ray Charles, Judy Garland, Peggy Lee, bossa nova, and early experimental electronic music.”

Wilson’s family eventually settled in Bellevue, a suburb of Seattle, Washington. In 1968, she graduated from Sammamish High School. Shy because of a stutter, Wilson sought fulfillment in music. In the early 1970s she joined a local band, White Heart, which changed its name to Hocus Pocus, and then in 1974, to Hear.

Ann Wilson Personal Life

As a child, Wilson was bullied for being overweight. She revealed that in the 1970s and into the early 1980s she would starve herself and use diet pills to stay thin. By the time Heart made a comeback in the mid-1980s, In music videos, camera angles and clothes were often used to minimize her size, and more focus was put on the more slender Nancy. Ann stated she began suffering from stress-related panic attacks due to the negative publicity surrounding her weight. She underwent a weight-loss surgery called “adjustable gastric band” in January 2002 after what she calls “a lifelong battle” with her weight.

In November 2009, Ann collapsed. Her sister went with her to the doctor, where Ann received news that she had liver problems resulting from drinking. While she had stopped using drugs at the birth of her daughter, she had increased her drinking; Nancy and other family members and crew had been concerned for some time. They planned to confront her about it, and had even built a break into the tour to allow for treatment. Ann ultimately got therapy on her own. In the band’s 2012 autobiography, Wilson revealed her past struggles with cocaine and alcoholism. She stated she has been sober since 2009.

Ann Wilson Career

In 1973, her younger sister Nancy joined Heart, and the band moved to Canada. Heart recorded their first album Dreamboat Annie in Vancouver in 1975. It was released in the United States in 1976, with “Magic Man” becoming Heart’s first Top 10 hit in the United States, peaking at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, and “Crazy on You” hitting number 35. Both songs were co-written by Ann and Nancy Wilson. In 1977, Little Queen was released, and in 1978, Dog & Butterfly. In 1992, Wilson appeared on Alice in Chains’ EP Sap; she sang on “Brother” and “Am I Inside”. In 1993, Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley contributed to vocals on “Ring Them Bells”, a Bob Dylan cover from Heart’s album Desire Walks On. In addition, Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez and touring guitarist Scott Olson appeared on Heart’s 2003 release Alive in Seattle.

The Wilson sisters started a recording studio, Bad Animals, in Seattle in the mid-1990s. They formed a side band, the Lovemongers, which performed “The Battle of Evermore” on the 1992 soundtrack to the Cameron Crowe (Nancy’s then husband) movie Singles, and later released a four-song EP. The Lovemongers’ debut album Whirlygig was released in 1997.

Wilson joined producer Alan Parsons in the 2001 live tribute tour to Beatles music called A Walk Down Abbey Road.

In 2006, Wilson began recording her first solo album, Hope & Glory, produced by Ben Mink, and released by the Rounder (Zoe) Music Group on September 11, 2007. Hope & Glory features guest appearances from Elton John, k.d. lang, Alison Krauss, Gretchen Wilson, Shawn Colvin, Rufus Wainwright, Wynonna Judd, and Deana Carter. Nancy also contributed. Three singles were released from the project, “Little Problems, Little Lies”, “Isolation”, and “Immigrant Song”. That same year, Ann and Nancy were on stage for a series of concerts in Las Vegas.

The Hope & Glory version of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” which is available on Wilson’s official MySpace page charted as “the No. 9 most podcasted song of 2007” on the PMC Top10’s annual countdown.

On November 22, 2012, Wilson sang an original arrangement of “The Star-Spangled Banner”, accompanied by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, at the beginning of the Thanksgiving Day football game between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Composer Gary Fry created the arrangement specifically for its premiere performance by Wilson and the DSO.

On July 13, 2015, Wilson announced a solo tour, The Ann Wilson Thing, which began on September 21. She released her first EP, The Ann Wilson Thing! – #1, digitally on September 18.

On July 22, 2016, Wilson announced the release of the second EP from The Ann Wilson Thing!. The EP is titled ‘focus’, and Wilson will play a Florida minitour in September 2016 as The Ann Wilson Thing! in support of this release.

On October 12, 2017, Ann’s first feature film, ‘ann wilson / in focus’ was released. It features an intimate interview conducted in Ann’s home by Criss Cain along with twenty complete live song performances from the ‘Ann Wilson of Heart’ tour stop in Wilmington, North Carolina on March 21, 2017. The director’s cut is now streaming via the ‘Ann Wilson of Heart’ YouTube channel.
