Heart - The Rock Band That Endures
There is something "feel good" about a band that not only features two sisters, but that the band that started in the 70's, continues to draw huge crowds and is capable of being in the top 10 spot some forty years later.
The sisters, Ann and Nancy Wilson brought their music to popularity in the early 70's. The two are the only members who have been constant through the years, and they are just as exciting, if not more so, than when they showed up in Seattle, Washington with their music that was influenced by hard rock as well as folk music.
Heart has sold over 35 million albums worldwide - now that is something to feel good about!
