Dire Straits' Rock Hall Induction Was a Weirdly Beautiful Mess

Dire Straits' Rock Hall Induction Was a Weirdly Beautiful Mess

Whether this was at the behest of the Rock Hall or the lack of willingness by the band, though, only one thing for now remains certain: Be, bop, a, lua, baby, this was a major bummer.

Sambora left Bon Jovi in 2013 and Such in 1994. Their concept album "Days of Future Passed" is considered a classic and includes the hit "Nights In White Satin".

Howard Stern inducted rsquo & this year;so class, telling jokes along the way, for example one on Rock corridor cofounder Jann Wenner, questioning why he had been capable to vote on who enters the hallway.

CLEVELAND Bon Jovi reunited with former members Richie Sambora and Alec John Such for a powerful performance on Saturday night as the band earned a spot in the prestigious Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Overlooked but never unappreciated, Sister Rosetta Tharpe is finally a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer.

The original group, along with current members Phil X, John Shanks and Everett Bradley, then teamed up to perform 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".

Now that the Induction Ceremony will be taking place every other year in the Rock Hall City, fans can look forward to the 35th affair when acts such as Weezer, Oasis, Daft Punk and Usher are eligible. After Bon Jovi took up the first hour of the four-plus hour long event, three members of Dire Straits unceremoniously inducted themselves.

Of course, the rest of the evening was not without its other highlights, which also included a "greatest hits" performance from new-wave legends The Cars, a cover of Tom Petty's "American Girl" by The Killers, and a touching tribute to Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell by Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell and Heart's Ann Wilson.

The 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air May 5 on HBO and will also be heard on SiriusXM Radio.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Nina Simone were inducted posthumously.

"It's terrific that Tharpe is inducted this year", said Greg Harris, the chief executive of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard talked about her recent tour. Without any sort of presenter, they humbly accepted their award and apologized for the absence of frontman Mark Knopfler, whom bassist John Illsley said couldn't attend because of "personal reasons".
