Heart-Frontfrau ANN WILSON huldigt auf „Immortal“ verstorbenen Rock- und Popgrößen

A cover album by Ann Wilson (68), completely without Led Zeppelin songs. This is surprising at first glance, and that is why it is worth asking for. We also want to know why she recorded a cover album again. After all, 2007 saw the release of "Hope & Glory" - the "Immigrant Song", of course - a complete work with cover versions. And we need to shed some light on the rumor jungle around Heart.

eclipsed: An album with cover versions of you, and there's no Led Zeppelin song on it. That's surprising!

Ann Wilson: That didn't fit into the concept, because "Immortal" is about paying tribute to the rock and pop greats that have passed away in recent years.

eclipsed: Therefore not Led Zeppelin, but David Bowie, Tom Petty, Chris Cornell, Amy Winehouse, George Michael and Leonard Cohen?

Wilson: It's a tribute to the music that has shaped me and generations. With the statement: The protagonists are unfortunately dead, but their songs with partly great poetic lyrics live on.

eclipsed: There are obvious songs like "Back To Black" by Winehouse or "Politician" by Cream and then again more insider tips like "I'm Afraid Of Americans" by Bowie or "Luna" by Tom Petty.

Wilson: I actually dared to approach the songs from the lyrics. That's the main reason.
