On top of this, the little-known but highly influential figure of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, sometimes dubbed "the godmother of rock'n'roll", is also to be inducted with a special Early Influences award.

With a string of quickly memorable hits such as "Livin' on a Prayer", "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Wanted Dead or Alive", Bon Jovi became kings in the 1980s, packing arenas on their exhaustive tours full of pyrotechnics.

I'm talking about the 2018 inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Ready to rock! The 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees were announced on Wednesday, December 13.

This is the stuff you dream about when you start making records, and they established this Hall when I started making records.I was able to go to that first one, and you dream about it but it seemed surreal at the time.

The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees have been announced, and there's some black girl magic on the list!

"It's a Christmas miracle", Bon Jovi keyboardist David Bryan told Rolling Stone.

The 2018 Rock Hall inductees were determined by a committee of 800 artists, historians and music industry members, as well as a fan vote. Richie is estranged from the group, but admitted when the Hall of Fame nominations came out in October that he would totally be down to join them if Bon Jovi made it in. Among the more controversial choices, at least for a vocal group of dissenters, have been disco queen Donna Summer - now the subject of a musical at the La Jolla Playhouse - in 2013, gangsta rap group N.W.A.in 2016 and folk legend Joan Baez and deceased hip-hop star Tupac Shakur in 2017.

Dire Straits also got a boost from MTV exposure on its hit "Money For Nothing" after its breakout song "Sultans of Swing" emerged in the late 1970s, featuring guitar mastery by frontman Mark Knopfler.

The public was invited to participate again this year in the fan vote, which drummed up record numbers with more than 6.8 million votes cast. It honored rappers the last two years, describing rock "n" roll as more attitude than musical genre.
