Top 7 Women in Rock: Ann and Nancy Wilson 

Posted on Sunday, June 28, 2009 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments3 Comments

Ann and Nancy Wilson are two rocking sisters – and together they comprise the core of Heart. For that reason, the Wilson sisters share the number two spot on our countdown of the top seven women in rock.

Heart formed in the 1970s and went on to make a splash in the hard rock world – not something common then for a group fronted by women. Heart churned out some amazing singles, especially “Alone,” “Crazy on You,” “These Dreams,” “What About Love?” and “Barracuda.”

Many female artists have covered Heart songs over the years – and “Alone” is an American Idol staple for female hopefuls with a rock edge.

Heart is currently on tour – some dates are with Journey.

YES!!!

In my world, Heart is the best band ever, but I'm just happy to see they made the list.

Ann and Nancy are groundbreaking artists that deserve a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Male or female, Ann's voice can't be beat, and Nancy isn't called "whizfingers" for nothing.

Thanks for recognizing Heart!

I think when I see them in September, it's going to be my 32nd time! I can't get enough.

If they're playing anywhere near you, go see the show. You won't be disappointed!
