Sambora thanked band-mates along with his fans, " the paper reported. They all hugged as a group afterward. "To all of you who have been a part of this ride for the last 35 years, and all the fans, we share this honor with you - because this life is a gift", Bon Jovi said. In the end, it's really all about time'. "It took a lot of people to get us here tonight".

Bon Jovi had the most incredible reunion at their induction to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at the weekend.

After an "In memoriam" montage of those who passed in the past year, Heart's Anne Wilson and Alice in Chains' Jerry Cantrell delivered a tribute to Chris Cornell. He began by milking the crowd for a standing ovation before saying a word. Day, a Grammy-nominated R&B singer, hit high notes that also earned her applause.

Soul singer Nina Simone, who raised awareness with a dazzling voice during the civil rights movement, is rock and roll royalty.

"Writing it was therapeutic for me", Bon Jovi said. The dream I'm talking about is that this great band of brothers are finally joining their fellow musicians in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Wilson of Heart said the English rockers "are and have always been a kick ass rock band". 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".

"He just didn't feel like coming, it's as simple as that", Illsley, in an interview with Billboard, said of Mark Knopfler. "Some days I write the "Thank you" speech, sometimes I write the '(Expletive) you' speech", he said. "Let's just leave it at that". Illsley inducted the band himself. "Jann is in charge, but I don't know why". Look, this is an honor long overdue. I love these guys and so do you. The Cars, founded in Boston in 1976, combined New Wave and classic rock sounds. Ric Ocasek paid tribute to bandmate Benjamin Orr, who died in 2000. It feels kinda unusual to be up here without him.
