Heart’s Nancy Wilson said she “felt like [she] got into the cool ball team,” adding that many artists already in the Hall were some of Heart’s biggest influences. Heart was also acknowledged by Public Enemy’s Chuck D, who compared the Wilson sisters’ breaking of barriers to that of his own band. “Heart persevered and just broke through a mould and it's the same thing with us in our genre," he said. Other inductees included Quincy Jones, Randy Newman, Donna Summer and blues great Albert King. “Albert King is why guitar-face was invented,” said John Mayer.
