Bon Jovi is finally being honored by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and it’ll be none other than Howard Stern who’ll induct them at the ceremony later this year. The announcement was made on Wednesday morning’s Stern Show during Jon Bon Jovi’s interview with Howard.
“I am so honored that you asked me. I am thrilled to do it," Howard told Jon.
Jon explained he spent a lot of time considering who should be the one to induct him and his band into the Rock Hall, but in the end he knew it had to be Howard. “Our careers have paralleled in a lot of ways and whether it was the ups or the downs, we’ve come through everything together,” Jon said on the air. “Nobody knows not only me but the members of the band as well as Howard.”
