Heart Ready for Fans to "Walk All Over" Them as They Receive Their Hollywood Star Today

Luck MediaHeart's busy fall continues, as Ann & Nancy Wilson receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday.  Their star, number 2,481 if you're keeping track, will be located at 6752 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of The Musician's Institute.  If you can't make it in person, you can watch it stream live at WalkofFame.com starting at 11:30 a.m. PT.

Comparing this particular accolade with the others they've received in their long career, Ann Wilson tells ABC News Radio, "It's a good one. We've never received an honor like that before."  Nancy, meanwhile says, "We don't have to try to figure out where to put it in our house 'cause it's already on the street over there by the Musicians Institute." 

But while they don't have to ponder where to keep the award, they do have to make a decision about something equally important. "I gotta figure out what to wear [to the ceremony!]," says Ann.

Nancy tells ABC News Radio that one thing they think is special about getting a star on the Walk of Fame is that it's a permanent piece of the landscape that their descendants can visit.  "It'll be really fun for our kids and their kids, y'know, future generations...to just be able to walk by there and go, 'Ooh, yeah I'm related to those sisters,'" says Nancy. "I think that's the coolest thing about it."

The sisters don't even mind that people from all nations will be stepping on their names for all eternity.  "Just walk all over us!  I don't care! Go ahead!" they laugh. 

Heart's new album Fanatic will be in stores October 2.  Their memoir Kicking & Dreaming is in stores now.
