New Jersey Gov. Murphy Declares April 14th 'Bon Jovi Day'

The Latest Past due Moody Blues inducted into Rock Hall

On Saturday, Bon Jovi gets inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame.

There may be something to that, since Bon Jovi - whose fans came out in thousands to see the band inducted - were the first band to be inducted at the ceremony.

The frontman said that although he and the other current members haven't spoken to Sambora since he left the group, he invited the performer, along with Such, to be part of the Rock Hall festivities.

Radio superstar Howard Stern inducted the band with an irreverent, profanity-laced speech and also led the crowd in singing "Wanted Dead Or Alive", one of Bon Jovi's biggest hits that helped them sell 130 million albums.

Dire Straits, led by Mark Knopfler, emerged from Britain's so-called pub rock scene of the 1970s, which emphasized blues roots and no-frills musicianship in an era of angry punks and flamboyant glam bands. In an interview ahead of the event, co-founding member and bassist John Illsley said Mark "just didn't feel like coming, it's as simple as that". He closed by thanking his wife, Dorothea, saying "I just want to make you tea and tell you that I love you". "Even if you hate rock "n" roll, you should love the Rock Hall because it's such a great asset for the community".

Kelly has been suspended for six games and was fined an undisclosed amount of money for hitting Austin with a pitch and fighting. Even without two of their hottest hitters, the Red Sox still bled Yankees starter Sonny Gray for six runs in three innings.


Tharpe will be inducted by Brittany Howard, of Alabama Shakes. Mary J. Blige will induct Simone, who died in 2003.

Simone, who won induction on her first nomination, was widely considered one of the most influential singers of the 20th century who brought the sensibilities of classical music to gospel and jazz.

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. Flowers recalled the first time he heard The Cars while growing up in a tiny, "no stoplight" town in Utah, saying "40 years later they still sound like a new band to me".

The shrine to rock culture surveyed some 1,000 historians and music industry players to select the new inductees.
