ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: Late disco queen Donna Summer, hip hop pioneers Public Enemy and American rock band Heart were among the eight new inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's ceremony in Los Angeles on Thursday (April 18).
"We dare to get sentimental sometimes, we dare to get emotional and speak in simple human terms and we're not ironic necessarily. I think that might be one thing that makes a lot of people be able to bring us to them," said Ann Wilson on why fans were so drawn to their music.
Heart scored hits with "Magic Man" in 1976, "These Dreams" in 1986 and "Alone" in 1987.
The eight inductees were chosen from a shortlist of 15 nominees. The inductees were chosen by some 500 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, which includes past inductees, and for the first time this year fans were also allowed to vote.
Candidates for the Cleveland-based Hall of Fame must have released their debut album or single at least 25 years before 2012 to be eligible.
