Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are the creative spark behind Heart, a rock group that initially found success in the mid-'70s via guitar-heavy radio hits like "Magic Man" and "Barracuda," only to reach greater heights after engineering a major pop comeback a decade later. Drawing from progressive rock, hard rock, and folk, the band's 1976 debut, Dreamboat Annie, and 1977 sophomore effort, Little Queen, helped establish Heart as a hard-hitting hitmaking machine with both hooks and attitude. Their eponymous eighth album, 1985's Heart, reached quintuple platinum status via more mainstream fare such as "Alone," "What About Love?," and "These Dreams," the latter of which scored the band its first number one single. Heart managed to land Top Ten albums in each of the band's four decades, despite taking a break in the late '90s to pursue other interests — the Wilsons released a pair of roots-oriented LPs under the Lovemongers' moniker in 1997 and 1998. Upon reconvening in 2004 with Jupiter's Darling, Heart issued a string of successful albums, culminating in their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
