Went to the Rock n' Roll HOF Induction Ceremony
Howard Stern inducted Bon Jovi, his speech was funny but also sincere. Bon Jovi (the band) sounded better than Bon Jovi, the singer
Disappointing, the 3 Dire Straits band members outside of the Knopfler brothers gave a brief speech about how the band has personal issues, and didn't play a song.
The Cars played well, the Moody Blues were good, and the artists that did tributes to Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe were very good as well.
Ann Wilson and Jerry Cantrell did a tribute to Chris Cornell, playing Black Hole Sun, that was killer, and The Killers did American Girl by Tom Petty that was also very good.
A very unique experience, my first induction show. Unfortunately there was no group jam session at the end.
Very cool, Pat. I've always wanted to attend a R&R HOF ceremony.
The broadcast will air on HBO on May 5, and is usually available to stream for several weeks afterward.
