Bon Jovi reunites to enter Hall of Fame

Richie Sambora

They were inducted by Howard Stern, who provided many laughs at the event. Jon Bon Jovi will be inducted alongside current bandmates David Bryan and Tico Torres, as well as former members Richie Sambora and Alec John Such.

Simone was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday night by R&B superstar Mary J. Blige, who described her as "bold, strong, feisty and fearless and so vulnerable and transparent at the same time". On Saturday, Bon Jovi gets inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame.

With the 2018 induction ceremony looming on Saturday (April 14) at nearby Public Hall, Hawkes and fellow Cars Ric Ocasek and Elliott Easton, along with members of Dire Straits and the Moody Blues, took in the bash along with the likes of The Voice Season 8 champion Sawyer Fredericks, Trans-Siberian Orchestra manager Adam Lind (who confirmed a 2018 TSO tour has been booked) and members of the Cleveland political, business and philanthropic communities.

Bassist John Illsley acknowledged the awkwardness of Knopfler not being present and then took a subtle swipe at his bandmate and close friend by saying, "it's more than one person, a collective". "We're very grateful to the Rock Hall of Fame for being that temple for all the music we loved while growing up", said Moody Blues singer-guitarist Justin Hayward.

'SNL': Robert De Niro plays Robert Mueller grilling Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen
The show's cold open had plenty of material to work with this week. "I mean you can milk anything with nipples", Stiller's Cohen said.

Tharpe, who died in 1973, will be inducted with the "Award for Early Influence", while the other five acts will be inducted as performers. This year marked the band's third nomination; Brandon Flowers, of The Killers, will induct the band.

The Cars, founded in Boston in 1976 and known for combining New Wave and classic rock sounds, were inducted this year after being nominated twice before.

A flawless Brittany Howard, of the critically acclaimed rock act Alabama Shakes, gave an extraordinary Tharpe impression onstage, winning over the audience with her rousing live performance in honor of the godmother of rock "n" roll. All of the inductees had to have released their first recording no later than 1992 to be eligible. The ceremony will air May 5 on HBO.
