Free piano sheet music from Heart
Heart are an American rock band that started in Canada and have been performing folk rock and hard rock for over forty years, making them a hallmark in the music history.
Ann Wilson and Nancy Wilson are the two band members, also sisters that have lasted throughout more than three lineups throughout the years. Ann’s voice as the main vocalist and Nancy’s exceptional guitar play has made the band rise to success, especially in the 1970s period.
The 1967 band called "The Army", after going through personnel changes, renamed itself in 1969 to "White Heart" and, one year later, the name remained only "Heart". During 1970-1975 they played in Canada, especially in Vancouver and, with the aid of producer Mike Flicker, the band debuted with "Dreamboat Annie".
In the US, the album spawned two hits, "Magic Man" and "Crazy on You", the first one making it to the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 1977, the band released two albums, "Magazine" and "Little Queen", the single "Barracuda" from "Little Queen" selling over 1 million copies. This success made the band be featured on the cover of magazine "Rolling Stone" and even got them to perform in Texas, alongside great names such as Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Van Halen and others.
The 1978 album "Dog and Butterfly" reached top 20 on the charts and spawned two hits, "Dog and Butterfly" and "Straight On". In 1980, the "Bebe le Strange" album reached fifth on the charts, spawning hit song "Even It Up" and "Tell It Like It Is". That same year, "Greatest Hits/Live" was released, where they covered Led Zeppelin and The Beatles.
In 1982 Heart released "Private Audition" and, one year later, "Passionworks", the latter spawning hit single "How Can I Refuse", which topped the Mainstream Rock Charts.
In 1985 they signed with Capitol Records and released the album "Heart", which topped the charts and spawned the following hit songs: "What About Love", "These Dreams", "Never" and "Nothin’ at All".
The 1987 album "Bad Animals" was a change towards the arena rock genre, spawning the hits "Who Will You Run To", "There’s the Girl", "Alone" and "I Want You So Bad". Other albums were "Brigade" in 1990, "Desire Walks On" in 1993, "Heart Presents a Lovemongers’ Christmas" in 2001, "Jupiters Darling" in 2004, "Red Velvet Car" in 2010 and "Fanatic" in 2012.
