    I'm sure I've seen better footage from this live in '77. Saw them on that tour, Anne was so energetic, beautiful, just out to rock, she overshadowed her sister completely. Anne is still all those things. Agreed her voice did get stronger in time. She brought tears to Robert Plant's eyes at the Kennedy Centre (although I think the choir and the production instigated more of those emotions possibly). A woman who can, the only other additional singer to do STH with the best tone was Lou that guy sang! Kudos to Ken, I love your shirt in this video more than anything. 😉

    Speaking of eulogizing .. Could you please analyze Warrel Dane (RIP) with Nevermore doing The Godless Endeavor (live)? Pretty please! You can use this video too, that I produced myself .. (won't get a copyright strike; already tested) You can try and take a chance on the original official video of same .. (no lyrics provided) Do keep in mind that Dane had 4+ years of opera training in his youth .. Definitely an analysis worth doing .. BTW, Wilson's and Dane/Nevermore both -- from Seattle ..

    I have listened to Heart since their earliest days. This is the one that actually cracked me up from the first time I heard it in 1976. She sounded like a neighing horse on the chorus. And from that day until now, whenever I hear it, I neigh along with her at the top of my lungs. My husband automatically puts all the car windows down when he hears the intro.

  • Jet From Holland

    Have you ever heard of the Finnish band Nightwish? They are a symphonic metal band and have a frontwoman. This lady, called Floor Jansen, does a really good version of Alone, from Heart. Her vocal abilities range from opera to growling. She is also, like you, a vocal couch, although, with the success of Nightwish, she will probably not have time to teach much anymore. I would really appreciate it if you would take the time to check her out. She is from my country, The Netherlands. 🌷🌷🌷 This is one of my favourites from Nightwish with Floor I would love, love, love to know what you think. I’m not saying you have do a reaction vid, but I would love to know your opinion, Ken. Love from Holland. By the way, I love Heart❤️!

      also. I love your covers they are so good. Maybe you can make a covers album like Eddie Money did. and then piggyback your singing course somehow. because after all most people want to sing along to their favorites songs but cant. But now you can with Ken Tamplin.

    Ann became a better singer around the same time she gained weight. The whole world was brutal. I like and dislike heart, A little love, no hate. I believe we would have never heard them do any of this if there were no led zepplin. Heart was very creative, but Even the songs I really liked didn't keep me. I heard hot chocolate..everyone's a winner back in jr. High and I still can't get it out of my mind. When I think heart.... I think "magic man"!!!

    Wow. 1977. You probably think I’m crazy but never heard them before. It’s before my time. Love your honesty. Just like I did not think you’re absolut best on one of the Bon Jovi songs, you lacked some energy that time. But you did an amazing comeback on your next song! So being honest Works the best. I think she strugled a bit early in the song, but WOW, she went crazy crazy amazing from the midle part and out. Can’t belive this is live! 👏👏👏

    This performance was after Jon hurt his voice. To be fair to him, you should review a pre injury performance(like from Slippery tour). Jon just goes overboard now to protect his voice. It's much more nasally, soft and head voicey and has been for the last couple decades. Vocal coaching has obviously helped Jon protect his voice but the trade off is, he doesn't sound great anymore. He doesn't sound horrible either though. Besides, his fans are mainly there just to see him and share the moment with him. God Bless & Rock On!
