The Wait is Over for Bon Jovi

Jon Bon Jovi and his band mates have been eligible for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame since 2008 but had never been nominated... until this year. Now the fan favorite according to the Rock Hall's own online balloting will lead the Class of 2018 which Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announces Bon Jovi, The Cars, more as 2018 inductees

The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Class was announced early Wednesday morning (Dec. 13), and while Bon Jovi, who topped the fan voting for the Rock Hall, found their way into the new class, Judas Priest, who also were included on the fan ballot, did not make the final cut.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe will receive a special Award for Early Influence. A nomination doesn't guarantee that the act will be inducted; Kate Bush, Rage Against the Machine and Depeche Mode were among the other acts who were nominated this round, but won't be inducted.

Klipsch Audio, a leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, is a strategic partner and presenting sponsor of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, its Induction Ceremony events and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's Main Stage. When asked about the band's inclusion Wednesday, lead singer Jon Bon Jovi said, "I really want to say it's about time".

"Thanks for inducting us into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame". An edited version will be broadcast on HBO and SiriusXM radio in spring 2018.

English Premier League Report: Southampton v Arsenal 10 December 2017
Following a 1-1 draw away to Southampton , it seems that Arsenal are well and truly out of the Premier League title race after just 16 games.

Likewise, former Moody Blues' members Mike Pinder and Ray Thomas could rejoin the pioneering English band after many years apart.

Bon Jovi has been eligible to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 2008 and has only been nominated once before, in 2011. Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first commercially available recording, which means The Moody Blues - who only made the ballot for the first time this year - have been eligible since 1989.

Ballots were voted on by over 1,000 artists; fans also had a say in a special additional ballot.
