It has finally happened. After a wait that was way too long, Bon Jovi is going to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The word that Bon Jovi will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame came down earlier this morning on the Hall's website. Bon Jovi will be inducted along with The Cars, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

You may have caught me and Liz promoting Bon Jovi in our little grass roots campaign which was just our way of bringing attention to the fact that this band belonged in Hall years ago.

Congratulations, to not only Bon Jovi, but all their fans and the entire state of New Jersey. This is a big day for us all!
