Lord, we sure do live in different worlds.
Jazz legend Nancy Wilson passed away at 81 years old on December 13 after a long illness. She died at her home in Pioneertown. Social media has been mourning her passing, but white Twitter thought that another Nancy Wilson passed away — the guitarist from the rock band Heart.
The band Heart is known for songs like “Crazy on You,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You” and “These Dreams.” The band Heart was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013. See one of their songs “Barracuda” below, which is considered one of their most iconic hits. Nancy Wilson is the blonde guitarist.
The white Nancy Wilson is 64 years old and still touring the world with her sister Ann Wilson, who is considered one of the greatest singers in rock music. She actually posted about the passing of Wilson on Twitter, writing, “#NancyWilson my namesake did a great thing in the world when her most common of names meant so much to so many people everywhere. Rest In Peace.”

Hey, Arnie. Nancy Wilson is Heart's guitarist. ANN Wilson is the singer. Not that it matters.— cmsof (@cmsof) December 14, 2018
