Nancy Wilson and her sister Ann showed the world that women can rock when their band Heart first shot up the charts in the 1970s with a string of hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man” and “Barracuda.” Now, with over 35,000,000 albums sold and the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nancy is still rocking.

In the July 2013 issue of Premier Guitar magazine, Nancy, described as a “Goddess of Rhythm,” talks about the journey and her gear. EHX is proud that Nancy uses a Holy Grail reverb and Small Stone phase shifter.
