She influenced countless musicians, including hip-hop artists Jay-Z, Kanye West and others who first discovered her from a 2015 Oscar-nominated documentary. There was no accompanying live performance, but by contrast, Jon Bon Jovi had opened proceedings with a speech that lasted close to 20 minutes, after an introduction by broadcaster Howard Stern.

The band paid tribute to the late founding bassist and co-lead singer with a performance that inlcluded his biggest songs. "I don't think you can go anywhere in this world without hearing a classic Bon Jovi tune somewhere and it's pretty incredible their whole success story".

"Pay some rock "n" roll respect.to the eternal Tom Petty", frontman Brandon Flowers said, as photos of Petty were displayed in the background.

The ceremony will air as an edited special on HBO May 5, but you can also see their backstage press room chat below.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted its class of 2018 Saturday night in Cleveland, rolling out the red carpet for The Cars, The Moody Blues, Bon Jovi, Dire Straits, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe (though as usual, not for these three criminally neglected bands).

Bon Jovi, The Cars, Nina Simone, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues and Sister Rosetta Tharpe were the Class of 2018 for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Band members thanked fans as they accepted their award after a speech from Ann Wilson, who praised their "natural intelligence".

Tharpe will be inducted by Brittany Howard, of Alabama Shakes. Mary J. Blige will induct Simone, who died in 2003.

The Cars members bass player John Illsley and keyboardists Alan Clark and Guy Fletcher were at the ceremony, but frontman Mark Knopfler was absent.
