Dean Wetter is the husband of one of the best female vocalists in rock music history, we are talking about, Ann Wilson, the former Heart lead singer and songwriter.
Dean Wetter and Ann haven’t been married for long but the problems for the couple are already there. According to reports Dean is being held on investigation of assaulting two relatives during the group’s show in Seattle.
Dean Wetter appeared in court on Monday and his bail was set at $10,000. The 65-year-old apparently got physical with two boys who where trying to take a peek inside his wife’s new tour bus.
According to court records, Dean confronted the boys and started yelling after they left the bus door open and allegedly punched one of the boys in the back of the head before grabbing him by the throat.
When the other boy stepped in, Wetter allegedly also grabbed his throat.
His wife of little over a year, began her career from a local band, White Heart, in the early 1970s. However, this band changed its name to Hocus Pocus, and then in 1974, to Heart. The same year, her younger sister Nancy joined Heart and they moved to Canada. They recorded their debut album Dreamboat Annie in Vancouver in 1975 and released it in the United States the following year, with “Crazy on You” hitting No. 35 on the US charts. In 1977, they released their second album, Little Queen, and in 1978, Dog & Butterfly.
Ann Wilson is currently touring solo and is scheduled to play in Florida next month.
Dean Stuart Wetter and Ann Dustin Wilson were married on April 2015.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Wetter, said “I do” under a floral-adorned arch in front of an intimate group of friends and family in Topanga, California, in her manager Carol Peters’s backyard.
Dean Wetter and Wilson actually go from way back. The now husband and wife first met back in the 80’s. At the time they went on a date where they both got ‘smashed’ as described by Wilson. She tried to seduced him but ‘the gentleman’ that he is, declined. The two got back in touch in recent years and it just worked.
Wilson was famously linked to Heart counterpart Mike Fisher in the ’70s. She has two adopted children, Marie and John.
Dean Wetter is a multi-generational community developer. Wetter is scheduled to appear in court again Wednesday.
