  • Cleveland hosts Rock Hall Induction Ceremony

Rock Hall voters have recently opened their hearts to progressive rockers, which benefited "Nights in White Satin" singers The Moody Blues, to be inducted by Ann Wilson of Heart.

Howard, now known for his X-rated Sirius XM radio show, introduced Bon Jovi with a raunchy pseudo-stand-up routine.

Perhaps owing to the absence of the Knopfler brothers, Dire Straits - for the first time in the entire Rock Hall history - didn't have an induction speaker present them at the ceremony.

The president went as far to say the two of them were the same person and calling the agency a "den of thieves and lowlifes". The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee responded to the release of the report by attacking Republicans.

It was a banner night for Bon Jovi, as the legendary band earned its rightful place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But while he was excited about the Rock Hall honors, Ocasek downplayed the chance for a future Cars album without Benjamin Orr. Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard and guitarist Felicia Collins (who plays guitar in the Marie & Rosetta stage show) performed in honour of another 2018 inductee, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Although it rained during the ceremony, not even a single fan left the arena. 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".

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". David Bryan bandmembers Jon Bon Jovi and Tico Torres Equipped with Alec John along with former bandmates Richie Sambora.

The Cars and four first-time nominees, including Nina Simone, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, make up the 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame class.

Bevin insinuating that a peaceful protest by teachers would lead to sexual assault are reprehensible", Wise tweeted. But they also applauded Republicans who said they were voting to override the vetoes in order to fund education.

Jon Bon Jovi gave a 20-minute-long speech he explained he was creating for ages. The ceremoney started with The Killers giving tribute to the late Tom Petty.

The 2017 induction ceremony will be broadcast on cable channel HBO on May 5.

"It's terrific that Tharpe is inducted this year", said Greg Harris, the chief executive of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The event also saw the band's reunion with former member Richie Sambora, who shared a microphone with the band's lead singer on 'When We Were Us'.

He said at a press conference in London: "I've got to congratulate the fella, he's done very well". It was gathered that the radical boxer would return against an unnamed opponent in Manchester.

According to USA Today, Howard Stern said of the group's rise to fame, "Aside from the incredible music accomplishments, they are some of the nicest men I ever met, humble and gracious". With the much-publicised non-appearance of former Dire Straits frontman and songwriter Mark Knopfler, and the odd absence of a fellow artist to introduce them, it fell on his former bandmate and longtime friend John Illsley to induct the group himself.
