Bon Jovi reunites in Cleveland to enter Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

He peppered his remarks with his typically lewd comments about threesomes and other sexual acts while acknowledging that "hell must have frozen over" because he left his home to come to Cleveland, something he has complained vociferously about ever since he found out the Inductions were taking place this year in Cleveland and not NY.

Stern joked about Rock Hall co-founder Jann Wenner, questioning why he was qualified to vote on who enters the prominent organization. "That magazine is now a pamphlet", he said disparagingly, adding that he read an entire issue while hanging out backstage. New Rochelle resident Jennifer Vivolo-Carsen says Bon Jovi has been a part of the soundtrack of her life.

There was an "oooh" moment at the start of the Q & A with the members of the band, however, when a reporter asked Jon Bon Jovi if Richie Sambora would be playing on the group's next album.

"I've been writing this speech since I first strummed a broom and sang at the top of the stairs of my childhood home", he said. The band's current lineup - featuring longtime members Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge - will perform, while the group's founding keyboardist Mike Pinder and original lead singer Denny Laine are expected to be in attendance.

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. There was no performance following the band members' speeches. "They turned my black and white town into color", he said before kneeling to hand the band their award as they walked to the stage.

The Cars gave an awesome showing of "I Guess You're Just What I Needed".

Bon Jovi brought their set to an emphatic close with a rendition of "Livin' on a Prayer" that featured Sambora on talk box.
