Ann Wilson and her younger sister, Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart stormed the charts in the 1970s, and the music scene has never been the same since.

Whether it was hits "Crazy On You," "Magic Man," or "Barracuda" – the first decade they performed – or later works like "These Dreams," "Alone," or "What About Love" of the '80s and '90s, their music has had a profound influence on rock music.

Heart performs on Monday, Sept. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Puyallup Fair's 2012 Concert Series, presented by Columbia Bank.
