Tom Petty honored at Rock Hall opening ceremony

Tom Petty honored at Rock Hall opening ceremony

Featuring food from notable city chefs, it was a kind of calm before the ceremony storm (both literally and figuratively given thunderstorm predictions for Saturday) - albeit a loud kind of calm thanks to music from Philadelphia's Low Cut Connie, which covered favorites by Rock Hall inductees and also dedicated a version of Black Sabbath's "Changes" to the late Charles Bradley, who had covered the song.

A classically-trained pianist, Simone is often referred to as "The High Priestess of Soul".

Killers frontman Brandon Flowers will induct The Cars, whose four surviving members - Ric Ocasek, Elliot Easton, Greg Hawkes and David Robinson - will give a reunion performance.

Gov. Phil Murphy made the declaration hours before the platinum-selling New Jersey band was to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Cleveland. "We help people get through". He's disappointed that the group won't be performing and said he expected Knopfler wouldn't show up, but added that hasn't diminished his enthusiasm for the induction.

Each member of the band then delivered a speech, and Bon Jovi's stretched about 20 minutes.

Founded in Boston, The Cars had a strong connection to Cleveland, the hometown of late bassist Benjamin Orr, who sang lead vocals on some the band's biggest hits like "Just What I Needed", "Bye Bye Love" and "Drive".

Tharpe died in 1973 at the age of 58, but her music lives on and is being appreciated by a new generation just learning of her legacy.

The presenter who'll induct Dire Straits hasn't been announced yet, and only three of the band's members will be on hand for the event: bassist John Illsley, and keyboardists Alan Clark and Guy Fletcher.

The Rock Hall induction was expected to include all the original members of the band, including guitarist Richie Sambora, bassist Alec John Such, keyboardist (and Tony Award victor David Bryan), and drummer Tico Torres.

English rockers Dire Straits were inducted without its leader Mark Knopfler, or his brother David Knopfler.

Alabama Shakes singer Brittany Howard will pay homage to late gospel artist Tharpe, an early influence on the music that became rock 'n roll.
