This Rock Band Still Has Heart
Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are the creative sparkle behind 'Heart', a rock group that initially found success in the mid - '70s on AOR Radio, only to reach greater heights after engineering a major comeback with 'Power Ballads' on Pop FM Radio in the 80's.
Al & Jeff covered this great show Friday night for Ireport...
The 70's songs like 'Crazy On You' and 'Barracuda' were the AOR (Album Orientated Rock) classics, the 80's tunes like 'What About Love' and 'Never' were the 'Power Ballads' that rocked top 40 Radio.
Its safe to say that fans of both decades were not disappointed...
Ann was on fire during “Straight On” and when she brought out her flute for “Dog and Butterfly” she changed directions and turned the show into a Lovefest.
'Magic Man' was a classic, 'These Dreams' had me singing in the aisle, and 'Kick It Out' had me kicking my feet lol...loved the tune 'Never' too...
The entire band came back on stage for the last song and raised the roof with a cover of Led Zeppelin’s classic “Misty Mountain Hop.” Ann was the star of this number as she belted notes that would make Robert Plant cheer...
But why end with a Led Zeppelin song? With their huge catalog, this made no sense to us.
Overall, it was a great night of Rock and Roll!
