A third of the nominees for the 20-12 class at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are women. They include Heart, one of the groups profiled in the Hall’s “women who rock” exhibit that opened this spring.  

The Rock Hall’s Lauren Onkey says Heart broke the mold of the male-dominated genre with songs like “Crazy on You” and “Barracuda” in the 1970s.

“Their first record came out, it felt comfortable on FM radio, you heard a woman rocker’s voice behind this turn-up-the-radio, kind of rock n roll of the mid 70’s. I mean that guitar is as driving as any guitar on a Zeppelin record. “

Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson have been with Heart through all four decades of the band’s career.  The other female nominees are Joan Jett, Laura Nyro, Rufus with Chaka Khan and Donna Summer. The final class of 20-12 is expected to be announced before the end of December.
