Admittedly, my musical taste veers toward masculine players. My favorite genre is rock, and though some females definitely rock (Debbie Harry, Stevie Nicks, Chrissie Hynde, Janis!), most of my favorites are male bands. But when I discovered the sister duo that is Heart, I found female refuge. The Wilson sisters — Ann the brunette, Nancy the blonde — were so cool. I love to watch live performances of theirs from the '70s. This is one of my favorites songs and who can forget it blasting during one of the best scenes in The Virgin Suicides?! Oh, Trip Fontaine . . . Note Nancy's awesome guitar intro in her sparkly peach wrap dress. Then Ann takes the stage in her blue dress with silver stars and heart mirror pin. Style and substance, wish I'd been a Wilson sister . . .
