Ann Wilson's Tribute

Singer plans album of songs by dead musicians


On her next album, Ann Wilson of Heart will reveal the gratitude inside her own.

The 67-year-old "Barracuda" singer is planning an album of cover songs written by musicians who died over the past couple of years, including David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Tom Petty.

The working title: "PDG," which stands for Project Dead Guys.

The new venture is "very near and dear to me," Wilson said on Twitter and other social media outlets. "I am deeply inspired to make this music and can't wait to take you all on the journey with me."

No release date has been announced.

Currently touring as Ann Wilson of Heart, she is performing tonight in Charenton, Louisiana, tomorrow in Biloxi, Mississippi, and Sunday in Grayton Beach, Florida.

Wilson has been estranged from her sister and Heart partner, Nancy, since August 2016. That's when Ann's husband, Dean Wetter, assaulted Nancy's 16-year-old twin sons backstage at a concert in Seattle. He later pleaded guilty and was placed on probation for two years.
