And if you haven’t yet, be sure to read Steve Rosen’s Behind the Curtain entry about an embarrassing encounter with Heart in the 1970s, and an important lesson he learned through the experience. A choice passage, recalling his exchange with Roger Fisher (the band’s guitarist at the time):

There wasn’t a hint of Kryptonite in sight and Roger and I got on famously. I felt indestructible. I thought, “I can say anything to him” and so I did. And even as the words were leaving my mouth, my brain was saying. “Don’t say it, nimrod. Do not say it, nitwit.” You know you shouldn’t say it, your brain is screaming at you, every molecule in your body is telling you to back off but you don’t. You’ve all done it, right? Said things you should have never said and ended up apologizing for them for the rest of your life? Sure you have.

So there I was, lips parted, an intake of breath and expelling those nine fated words: ““Man, the band is great but lose the girls.”
