Heart’s Ann Wilson opened up about The Beatles and revealed why she can’t stand the covers of the band. In a new exclusive interview with Forbes, the Heart frontwoman shared the process of finding her own voice and leading people to follow it.
Revealing that it wasn’t hard to find her voice, she said:
“I think when you’re writing songs, when I’m writing songs, it’s really easy to find my real voice, because that’s the voice that I write the lyrics in and come up with the melodies and all that, and it’s just an extension of my speaking voice.”
The singer then admitted the real reason why she finds The Beatles covers ‘cringe’:
“But when people cover your songs, that’s the tricky thing, like I’ve heard people cover Beatles songs, and I always cringe because it doesn’t matter who it is, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, it never sat right with me, it just didn’t because it wasn’t the authentic, it wasn’t John Lennon.”
Although the rocker doesn’t like the band’s covers, her admiration for The Beatles has been the topic of several interviews. The singer expressed her inspiration and admiration for the band many times, in fact, Wilson shared that she and her bandmate and sister, Nancy Wilson, wanted to be the female Beatles after seeing them on TV for the first time. The frontwoman still refers to the band as her favorite.
