Answer: Heart

Heart hit the rock and rock scene with their debut album "Dreamboat Annie" in 1976. Annie Wilson still claimed that Paul McCartney was her favorite singer when Heart was on tour in 2004 (she was the sister with a poster of Paul on her bedroom door in the late 1970's). During most of their concerts, they would perform their version of "Rock and Roll" by Led Zeppelin and I do have to say they did a great job of covering it.

In 1979 and 1980 they toured as the opening act for the Beach Boys and then later in the early 1980's they opened for Blue Oyster Cult.

After they opened for Cult they did a cover of Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild".
