As Ann Wilson put it on Saturday night, midway through Heart’s set in front of several thousand gleeful fans at Van Andel Arena, “In the ’70s, there weren’t really any women in rock ‘n’ roll. Women were in the basement and the garage trying to get it right.”
So, there’s little doubting the impact that highly successful female-fronted rock bands such as Heart and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts have since had on generations of artists who’ve followed them.
