Reading the news that Nancy Wilson is touring a band without her sister Ann, and calling the band 'Heart' is the final straw.

If you can't see past whatever personal problems you have, then you should just hang up the name, instead of watering it down for the sake of squeezing out the last available nickels.

Should Nancy Wilson tour? Absolutely. Should she be able to play her interpretations of those classic songs? Most definitely. But as soon as you hang the name 'Heart' on your show without your sister, you have killed the band. Hopefully, you haven't killed the legacy along with it.

Seeing the two Wilson sisters perform those songs that first introduced me to radio is a memory that will never go away. But I also refuse to dilute it with whatever version of Heart tours without them.

I'm afraid the most exciting thing about going to Nancy Wilson's Heart will be the $5 in free match play I'll get from the casino.

Michaels had the chance to catch Heart on tour last year, and he had a blast, probably because they're a great band. No telling how this new version of the band will be.
