Rock Hall proves it has Heart

The journey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame can be a long and winding road for some acts. For Heart, it took more than a decade, and sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson admitted they were losing hope.

“[The] running joke in the band was [we] would never get in,” Ann said.

But all that changed when the group made the class of 2013, announced this month.

“Well, it just goes to show you that just when you think you know the shape of rock ’n’ roll, it changes shape on you,” Ann said. “This is really more than thrilling.”

Her younger sister, Nancy, was glad the speculation over whether they’d make it was finally put to rest.

“We feel like we deserve it, so we’re happy to be here,” Nancy said.

Since their seminal 1976 release “Dreamboat Annie” that spawned the classic hits “Magic Man” and “Crazy on You,” the band went on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide. They took time off in the 1990s so Nancy, then married to director Cameron Crowe, could raise her family, but have been performing and touring for the past several years. This year, they released their 14th studio album, “Heart Fanatic,” and also released the book “Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock & Roll.”
