Foo Fighters have been spending the week on Letterman as his resident band, and yesterday pulled off an awesome cover of Heart’s classic Kick It Out, a pumping track they released back in 1977. What made the cover special was that Heart’s siblings and Seattle rock royalty Ann and Nancy Wilson were there to race through the track with them, and the energy was awesome.
Here’s a clip.
I loved Heart as a kid, thought the sisters were both stunners, and saw them live at Wembley Arena in 1990. Now, in 2014, Ann is 64 and Nancy is 60, but they’ve still got it. Indeed Ann, who wrote this track, still has one of the best female rock voices I’ve ever heard. It’s so great to see them continuing to rock their socks off.
