Bon Jovi Gets Inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!

Howard Stern is on his way to Cleveland

"The kindness of generations around this globe have allowed me, my guys.an opportunity to touch heaven, and so we now join a very elite group as members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame", Jon Bon Jovi told the crowd at the unveiling of the plaque and dedication of a new gallery at the Rock Hall.

With a string of quickly memorable hits such as "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive", Bon Jovi became kings in the 1980s, packing arenas on their exhaustive tours full of pyrotechnics.

"If he asks me", responded Sambora.

However, one of the most talked-about inductions this year came in the form of Bon Jovi, who announced in February that their original lineup was set to reunite for the induction performance, including famed guitarist Richie Sambora, who left the group back in 2013.

Sambora and the band also had an unsolicited reunion with a pair of disc jockeys from WAPP in NY who helped to give them their big break in the early 1980s by playing "Runaway". Next Felicia Collins ("Late Show with David Letterman") took over vocal duties for Tharpe's "Strange Things Happening Every Day".

Cars vocalist and rhythm guitarist Ric Ocasek attended Bowling Green State University earlier in his life, but it didn't last long, Mr. Milliken said. It feels kinda odd to be up here without him.

Benjamin Orr passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer in 2000, four years before The Cars were eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honors. "He referenced a new Rock Hall Induction category noting six influential songs, including Link Wray's Rumble", Chubby Checker's "The Twist" and Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild". "I'm honored to induct Sister Rosetta Tharpe into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame", Howard yelled following a video package featuring past interviews from Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin and others praising Tharpe's musicality.

As giant photos of Petty were displayed behind the stage, The Killers kicked off Saturday evening's tribute with "American Girl" one of Petty's best-known hits.

The band paid tribute to the late founding bassist and co-lead singer with a performance that inlcluded his biggest songs. R&B superstar Mary J. Blige welcomed Simone into the Rock Hall, and R&B singer Andra Day performed in her honor. She described Simone as "bold, feisty, strong and fearless", something Simone's brother confirmed in a rambling speech he made while accepting her award.

Instead, inductees the Moody Blues ended the night as the last act.
