I was flippin' throught he channels yesterday and stopped when I saw the band Heart playing live on the Ellen Degeneres show. I've always loved Heart especially their more 80's hard rockin stuff but...they were playing Barracuda and I thought it sounded horrible
The guitar playing was sloppy and over distorted. I can play that live waaaaaaay better than that. Anyone else see them? The vocals were great though. Have they always been sloppy live?


I was shocked and disappointed to say the least.

they were better in 02 and 03 when t hey had Alice in Chains basssit Mike Inez and Ex-GNR Guitarist Gilby Clarke in the band.......Then they were tight. I think Mike is still in the band.. he still has his long hair.. did ya see him?..personally. i liked heart way back when.. i dont care for em anymore.. but their new album is selling pretty good.. which feature gilby and mike on the album.. Gilby is not p art of it no more

If I could merge Ann and Nancy Wilson into one woman (plays guitar like Nancy and sings like Ann and as attractive as both), I would do whatever it took to get that woman to marry me.


That's too bad that they were not sounding too good. I've seen them play and sound great before so maybe it was just a bad night.

Yeah I agree ! They use to be awesome ! Thats great she had that surgery done cuz even tho Im a woman I'll agree that much more emphases is placed on how a woman looks than there is onna man ... I mean u can be a man and look like total ass and play guitar and your "all that" hahaha ... But us women gotta do both lol . Sad but true lol ! She has a killer voice tho . One of the only female singers I really care to listen to . She has a gift indeed !

Yeah, ya gotta watch out for that surgical procedure though. I know three people who have had it performed (the stomach thing) and they all lost an incredible amount of weight. However, a lady that I work with (1 cube over and down) had that procedure done and at least once or twice a day, she lets off some gas that smells horrible, like a Johnny on the Spot that tipped over or something awful like that. Reminds me of the scene in Shawshenck Redemption near the end where Tim Robbins' character break out of jail and has to crawl through like 3 football fields length of sewage pipe to get out. Ewwww!...........Uhhhh, but anyways, yeah...Heart. Great band.

I've seen em live bout 10 years back. they rocked. but i never heard band play on a talk show that sounded really good, and they didn't sound horriblr, but my question is, the bassist looked like the dude from poison. ithink it was.
