The Greatest American Rock Band Bracket!
First Round, Classic Rock Division
The Eagles (2) vs. Heart (15)
Country-rock hitmakers versus the Zep-loving Wilson sisters
"The Eagles were unquestionably the biggest mainstream American rock band to emerge in the 1970s. Not only did they sell more records and concert tickets than their peers, but they captured the shifting zeitgeist of the '70s, riding the country-rock hippie hangover at the end of the '60s until it reached the slick, expensive, and expansive pop/rock of Southern California in the late '70s. "
"Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are the creative spark behind Heart... a hard-hitting hitmaking machine with both hooks and attitude. Their eponymous eighth album reached quintuple platinum status [and delivered] its first number one single...Heart managed to land Top Ten albums in each of the band's four decades." --AllMusic.com
