Anne and Nancy Wilson are taking some time off from each other this summer, largely in part to a public incident last summer when Anne’s husband Dean was arrested following their August 26th show in Auburn Washington. According to reports Dean Stuart Wetter assaulted his nephews – the twin 16 year old sons of Nancy Wilson.
Last summer, The Seattle Times quoted court reports, which stated that after the boys left and didn’t close the tour bus door: “Wetter allegedly started calling them names, and slapped one of the boys in the back of the head. He then punched him in the head with a closed fist, ‘causing him to see stars’ and grabbed him around the throat. . . When the other boy tried to help, Wetter grabbed him by the throat ‘and squeezed to the point that he could not breathe for about five seconds before letting go’ The boy complained of a sore throat, pain and ‘fear of dying.'” Wetter was subsequently arrested and was freed on $10,000 bail. Ann Wilson and Wetter married in 2015.
Nancy, who recently released the first single from new side project ‘Roadcase Royale’, will be at an upcoming Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp this summer in LA but admitted that she really wanted to be spending the summer on tour with Heart.
