The Wait is Over for Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi have responded to the news that they are to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. The godmother of rock and roll, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, will also receive the Early Influence Award.

Singer Jon Bon Jovi reacted to the news by telling The New York Times that it was "about time", adding to USA Today that the band were "really pleased, obviously, relieved, humbled" and that "timeless and classic was always the goal".

When the acclaimed art-rock band received its first nomination into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on October 5, Radiohead responded the logical way: by scheduling a show in Buenos Aires the same night as the induction ceremony.

The other inductees were all inducted the first time on the ballot, though "Money For Nothing" rockers Dire Straits have been eligible since 2003, "Nights in White Satin" The Moody Blues have been eligible since 1989 and "Feeling Good" singer Nina Simone has been eligible since 1986.

"Wenner used to run the Hall of Fame, but he's lost his clout", one insider said.

The ceremony will premiere on TV network HBO and will be broadcast via SiriusXM, with further details to be announced in due course.

Likewise, former Moody Blues' members Mike Pinder and Ray Thomas could rejoin the pioneering English band after many years apart.

The Cars also recognized the honor on Twitter early Wednesday.

Artists are eligible for inclusion in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the release of their first commerical recording. The top five artists from the fan vote comprised the Fans' Ballot that was tallied alongside the other ballots to determine the 2018 Inductees.
