Day 2: Ann Wilson (right) & Nancy Wilson (2) (left)
Staying in the mid-70s to early 80s today, this may be another off-base selection: Heart wasn't even the sisters' band to begin with, which was started in Vancouver back in the mid-60s by Steve Fossen (bass) and brothers Roger Fisher and Mike Fisher (both on guitar) - initially as The Army, and later White Heart. Ann and Nancy came by way of Seattle, having grown up as Marine brats in SoCal and overseas. The band had dropped the "White" by the time Ann joined them in 1970. Nancy came into the fold a few years later, and the sisters were romantically involved with the brothers.
