Heart Still Blame Sarah Palin for Fans Hatred

'Some of the fans decided they didn't like us and didn't like our music any more,' Nancy Wilson says about people's reaction after their song was used in Palin's political campaign.

Heart sisters Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson are still fuming over their public spat with Sarah Palin. They were forced to improve their security arrangements after receiving death threats.

The "Alone" hitmakers blasted the former U.S. Republican vice-presidential candidate after she used their hit song "Barracuda" in her 2008 election campaign. They issued an angry statement reassuring fans they do not share Palin's political views - but the incident caused some supporters to walk away from the band, and the rockers were later targeted by "crazies".

Nancy Wilson tells Classic Rock magazine, "Some of the fans decided they didn't like us and didn't like our music any more. At least for a while. We were out on the road, and the next show that we played after that was somewhere in Florida - which is not where you wanna be if you're a Democrat." She adds, "We were kinda nervous, but we upped our security and kept a close watch on people walking in. Luckily - knock on wood - of all the crazies who have threatened to take us down, nobody so far has done that."

should read: I don't think her supporters (of which I am one)need to be doing so ....
posted by arjj on Sep 15, 2010 my knowledge, Palin has not condemned Heart...and I don't think her supporters (of which I am one) do not need to be doing so either. Regardless, Jesus said judge not lest you be judged...I love Heart's music and find Ann and Nancy as well as Sarah Palin inspiring in different ways. God gave us free will to have our own opinions. But to threaten others because it differs from ours? Does not compute...Life is too one another.

The "Heart" sisters,who haven't aged well, are morbidly jealous of Gov. Sarah Palin's beauty, charm, & style.
