Rock legend, and founding member of Heart, Nancy Wilson and her movie director/writer husband Cameron Crowe have filed for divorce after twenty-two years of marriage. In papers filed in the L.A. County Superior Court the reason given for the divorce were irreconcilable differences.

Cameron Crowe and Nancy Wilson were married on July 23, 1986. They have twin 10-year-old boys. Nancy is seeking joint custody of the children and is asking the court for spousal support.

Nancy Wilson along with her sister Ann Wilson founded the now legendary rock band Heart in Seattle, Washington in the early 1970’s. After a few years trying out different names and playing small clubs they settled on the name Heart and signed with Mushroom Records. The band quickly found success on rock radio and charted a top ten hit “Magic Man.” Heart recorded and toured regularly over the next fifteen years. As the band’s popularity declined the Wilson sisters started a side project before finally getting Heart back together in the late 90’s.

Nancy Wilson also co-wrote many of the original songs that appear in her husband’s movie Almost Famous. Cameron Crowe has also directed such hits as Jerry McGuire and Vanilla Sky. He is also credited as one of the writers of the iconic movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Their divorce brings Nancy’s name back into the spotlight at an interesting time. Just a few days ago American Idol announced their new judges: Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler. I think Nancy Wilson would have been a much better choice than Jennifer Lopez. For starters Nancy Wilson writes her own songs, she plays instruments and she sings live. She doesn’t dance and lip sync.  She knows what it is like to struggle in music, not be given a record contract because she is a popular actress. She and Steven Tyler would make a very interesting team to say the least. Maybe if JLO doesn’t work out, they can give Nancy Wilson a call.
