'It's about time': The 2018 Rock Hall inductions

New Jersey Gov. Murphy Declares April 14th 'Bon Jovi Day'

"That magazine is now a pamphlet", he said disparagingly, adding that he read an entire issue while hanging out backstage. Songwriter Desmond Child even mentioned how his son has Jon Bon Jovi as a godfather.

There was an "oooh" moment at the start of the Q & A with the members of the band, however, when a reporter asked Jon Bon Jovi if Richie Sambora would be playing on the group's next album.

"It's an honor to be here tonight, ladies and gentlemen", Stern said during his speech. The set included Bon Jovi classics such as "You Give Love a Bad Name", "It's My Life", "When We Were Us" and "Livin' on a Prayer".

During a 20-minute speech, Jon Bon Jovi recounted the band's rise to superstardom from basements to sold-out arenas.

Up next was Dire Straits, with integral band members Mark and David Knopfler not present. There was no performance following the band members' speeches.




Now that the Induction Ceremony will be taking place every other year in the Rock Hall City, fans can look forward to the 35th affair when acts such as Weezer, Oasis, Daft Punk and Usher are eligible. "It feels odd to be up here without him", Ocasek said, who noted he lived in Cleveland for a while.

Founded in Boston, The Cars had a strong connection to Cleveland, the hometown of late bassist Benjamin Orr, who sang lead vocals on some the band's biggest hits like "Just What I Needed", "Bye Bye Love" and "Drive". During an In Memoriam tribute, old photos of deceased rock "n' rollers showed as part of a video treatment, and Heart singer Ann Wilson and Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell performed a rendition of the Soundgarden song "Black Hole Sun" as a tribute to Soundgarden Chris Cornell, a close friend of Wilson's who passed away past year".

The evening performances included tributes to musicians who died in 2017, with the Killers performing Tom Petty's "American Girl" and "Free Falling" and Ann Wilson of Heart and Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains paying tribute to Soundgarden's Chris Cornell with the artist's 1994 hit "Black Hole Sun". Tharpe, dubbed the "Godmother of Rock and Roll", and known for her finger picking guitar technique, is said to have influenced the likes of Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry. Van Zandt endeared himself to the crowd as he gave shoutouts to the Agora, DJ Kid Leo and locally based concert promoters the Belkins.

Blige inducted Simone, contacting the singer "daring, powerful, weatherproof and fearless".

R&B star Mary J. Blige will welcome Simone into the Rock Hall, while contemporary R&B singer Andra Day will perform in Nina's honor. "Some days I write the thank you speech, other days, I write the fuck-you speech".
