HEART: 2013 Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

Heart was recently nominated (not for the first time) to be inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, along with a venerable group of nominees, including my picks: The Meters, Deep Purple, Albert King, and Rush. All truly remarkable, all memorable, all who have put their stamp on music history. And for the first time in history, fans themselves will have the opportunity to help determine who gets in. 
Between October 4 – December 3, 2012, YOU can vote for the five nominees you believe most belong in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. 
Voting ends December 3. Vote now! http://rockhall.com/get-involved/interact/poll/

Ann and Nancy Wilson
How do you know if a band truly belongs in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame? Is it the number of fans, number of hits, years on the road, recording revenue? Is it the number of tribute bands that have sprung up in its wake?

Heart's original members, Ann and Nancy Wilson, Michael DeRosier, Roger Fisher, Steve Fossen, and Howard Leese, still rock on, influencing countless original songwriters, musicians, and tribute bands. The magic and whimsy of their creative songwriting pair with sheer rock chops--and that incredible Voice--powering their music on. Many of their songs are woven into the soundtrack of my life: Dog and Butterfly, Magic Man, Crazy on You, Barracuda, Little Queen…the list goes on. These sisters get my vote!!
