Heart was the first hard rock band to feature women as its lead singers. The Wilson sisters are credited with inspiring many other women to follow their example. Both sisters developed an interest in music during their schooldays, with Nancy dropping out of college to concentrate on her music career.
Before the band came to be called Heart, it underwent a number of name changes. These included Army, the original name, followed by White Heart and Hocus Pocus. Its earliest success was with its debut album, "Dreamboat Annie," which was released in Canada first and sold 30,000 copies.
Among the band's other popular songs are "Magic Man," "Crazy on You" and "Heartless." Owing to its powerful vocals and music blending rock and folk elements, six of the band's albums were in the Top 10 and 20 of its singles were in the Top 40.Learn more about Classic Sports
