Highlights From Last Night's Rock Hall Induction Ceremony

Cleveland hosts Rock Hall Induction Ceremony
British rockers Dire Straits estrangement continued with the group's frontman, Mark Knopfler, declining to attend the event alongside his band, who inducted themselves into the Hall.
Once the tension was lifted, Bon Jovi spoke about the affection for his bandmates. Their concept album "Days of Future Passed" is considered a classic and includes the hit "Nights In White Satin".
Dire Straits, The Moody Blues and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who died in 1973, will also earn the prestigious honor at the organization's 33rd annual ceremony at Public Auditorium in Cleveland, where the Rock Hall is based. "He referenced a new Rock Hall Induction category noting six influential songs, including Link Wray's Rumble", Chubby Checker's "The Twist" and Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild".
An inspiration to musicians from Elvis Presley to Johnny Cash, Tharpe was called "the godmother of rock and roll" Saturday night by Alabama Shakes lead singer Brittany Howard, who inducted one her biggest influences. Fans expecting something special were left disappointed.
The group then delivered a spotty performance - mostly due to Bon Jovi's uneven vocals - of "You Give Love a Bad Name", "It's My Life", "When We Were Us" and "Livin' on a Prayer".
There was an "oooh" moment at the start of the Q & A with the members of the band, however, when a reporter asked Jon Bon Jovi if Richie Sambora would be playing on the group's next album.
Now that the Induction Ceremony will be taking place every other year in the Rock Hall City, fans can look forward to the 35th affair when acts such as Weezer, Oasis, Daft Punk and Usher are eligible.
Jon Bon Jovi gave a 20-minute-long speech he explained he was creating for ages.
The evening was opened by the Killers, who marked the 2017 passing of Tom Petty with a version of his early favourite with the Heartbreakers, "American Girl.' The passing of Chris Cantrell was acknowledged with a take on Soundgarden's 'Black Hole Sun" by Heart's Ann Wilson and Alice In Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell.
Bon Jovi, the Cars and four first-time nominees, including Nina Simone, will be inducted as the 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame class.
The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will air on HBO May 5 at 8 p.m. (Meanwhile, Mark's brother David said his own absence was due to the Rock Hall "reneging" on its promise to pay his full travel bills, while drummer Pick Withers also hasn't commented publicly.) Members of a band skipping the ceremony for personal reasons isn't inherently unusual for the Rock Hall, but this year, something changed - the inclusive spirit of the induction took a full 180 when the participating Straitsmen came on stage, as the two fundamental tenets of the process were completely eschewed.
Howard Stern did the honors for the band, with one of the night's more entertaining speeches.

There were loud cheers when the radical Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema paid tribute to Mrs Madikizela-Mandela. In 1991, a court found Madikizela-Mandela guilty of the boy's kidnapping and assault and sentenced her to six years in jail.
