Seattle's Heart Nominated For Hall

Seattle based band Heart has been nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. The group was nominated along with Guns And Roses, Joan Jett and a few other legendary artists from the 70s and 80s.  The top vote getters will be inducted into the hall in April.
 Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are considered pioneers for giving women a much more dominating presence in Rock And Roll.  The group burst on the scene in the mid-seventies with "Dreamboat Annie" featuring catchy songs like "Crazy On You" and "Magic Man".  Other great hits are "Straight On", "Barracuda", and "What About Love" They are known as a great band to see live as lead singer Ann Wilson seems to be able to make piercing eye contact with every member of the audience.    I saw them in concert in 1978 at the University Of Idaho Kibbie Dome.
