Bon Jovi Among 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2018 Inductees

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced its 2018 inductees.

The Cars as well as first-time contenders. Bay Shore native LL Cool J, who received a Kennedy Center Honor earlier this month, was also nominated, but not selected. All Inductees are ultimately represented in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, the nonprofit organization that tells the story of rock and roll's global impact via special exhibits, educational programs and its library and archives.

Bon Jovi serve as the heaviest of the new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Class, starting their career with their self-titled 1984 effort, and finding their breakthrough with 1986's Slippery When Wet.

"It's a Christmas miracle", says Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan in a statement.

Edge is the only remaining member of the original lineup of the band, which scored its first hit with "Go Now" in 1965.

The ban applies to both civilian and military networks and follows an order earlier this year for official agencies to remove the antivirus software within 90 days.

Rock band Bon Jovi has sold more than 120 million albums and performed more than 2,600 concerts. "We'd love it if they played with us".

Late vocalist Nina Simone is also one of the inductees.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe - who died at the age of 58 in October 1973 - rose to fame in the 1930s and 40s with her gospel recordings.

Tharpe's influence can still be felt today as she inspired legendary acts including Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins. The "You Might Think" rockers will be inducted on April 14 in Cleveland, where the band's founders, Ric Ocasek and the late Benjamin Orr, who was born and raised in a Cleveland suburb, first met before relocating to Boston.
