Nancy On Popdose Listmania: Top 50 Guitarists List

Nancy was named #41 on Popdose's list of the top 50 Guitarsists =)

41. Nancy Wilson. In the ’70s and ’80s, Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson made the list of many male music fans (you know the list I’m talking about), but as a guitar player, it’s arguable that Wilson hasn’t gotten a quarter of the acclaim that she deserves. For nearly four decades, Wilson has been the secret weapon of the band – contributing masterful guitar parts (both rhythm and lead), particularly when she’s armed with an acoustic. Combine that with the legendary powerhouse vocals of sister Ann Wilson, and there is no question why Heart are still considered one of the greatest live bands on the classic rock circuit – and thankfully, they show no signs of slowing down.
