They were inducted by Howard Stern, who provided many laughs at the event. "I don't think you can go anywhere in this world without hearing a classic Bon Jovi tune somewhere and it's pretty incredible their whole success story". 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.

The influential progressive rock group was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, ushered in by Heart's Ann Wilson, who said the band "took me from childhood to adulthood as a disciple". "That magazine is now a pamphlet", he said disparagingly, adding that he read an entire issue while hanging out backstage.

Their ten-ish minutes of stage time were then followed by ... nothing. 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. "And the truth is nobody knows not only me but the members of the band as well as Howard".

Flowers will deliver the induction speech to welcome The Cars into the Hall. Find other highlights from the rocking evening on the Rock Hall website. "It's quite unusual to be here without him", Ocasek said in reference to Orr.

Founded in Boston, The Cars had a strong connection to Cleveland, the hometown of late bassist Benjamin Orr, who sang lead vocals on some the band's biggest hits like "Just What I Needed", "Bye Bye Love" and "Drive".

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

Tharpe will be inducted with the "Award for Early Influence", while the other five acts will be inducted as performers. Van Zandt endeared himself to the crowd as he gave shoutouts to the Agora, DJ Kid Leo and locally based concert promoters the Belkins.

Presenting blues, jazz, R&B, pop and folk artist Nina Simone was Mary J. Blige.

Blige inducted Simone, contacting the singer "daring, powerful, weatherproof and fearless". Some days, I write the "Thank you" speech.

As Rolling Stone notes, following a "hilarious" speech from presenter Howard Stern, the members of the group spoke about their history in the band, and what their induction means to them.
