Lamont & Tonelli talk with Heart’s Nancy Wilson as she shares a touching story on how she gave Eddie Van Halen his first acoustic guitar. They also reminisce about playing the Led Zeppelin tribute at the Kennedy Honors.

As for what’s next for Heart? “There’s a huge offer for a Heart tour still…and we’re excited to do that, if possible,” says Wilson. But in the foreseeable future, Heart will be both inducting The Doobie Brothers and take part in an Alice In Chains tribute for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony on November 7th.
