The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inducts The Class of 2018

One imagines Tico Torres, Phil X, Hugh McDonald, David Bryan, and Alec John Such were happy to get the public acknowledgement by name, when so numerous media sometimes seem only aware of Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora. This year, the Rock Hall inducted Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, The Cars, and Nina Simone in addition to "Early Influencer" Sister Rosetta Tharpe. The dream I'm talking about is that this great band of brothers are finally joining their fellow musicians in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "This is really more about a group of people more than one person, it's a collective, a brotherhood and that's something that needs acknowledging tonight". All of the other artists inducted had a celebrity give an induction speech to introduce them.

As Flowers told Rolling Stone, "To pay tribute to Tom Petty who has just done nothing but enrich our lives, and then for me to get to induct the Cars into the Hall of Fame, I mean, this is a hell of a night for me".

It was a rock and roll night filled with glitz, glamour and plenty of hairspray as music legends arrived on the red carpet for the 2018 Rock Hall Induction Ceremony.

Bon Jovi's portion of the four-hour-plus event ran an hour-long on Saturday night, with Jon Boni Jovi giving a lengthy 20-minute speech onstage.
