Bon Jovi reunite with Sambora and John Such for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performance
Some bands do it right for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Bon Jovi reunited with guitarist Richie Sambora and bassist Alec John Such to perform at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday, April 4, 2018. The same cannot be said for many other hard rock and heavy metal artists induced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in recent years.
In 2012, Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose didn’t bother appearing at the iconic group’s Hall of Fame induction and the group ended up performing with Myles Kennedy from guitarist Slash‘s solo band handling the lead vocals. Ironically enough, Rose, Slash and bassist Duff McKagan ended up reuniting and embarking on one of the highest grossing tours of all-time dubbed Not in This Lifetime Tour starting in April 2016.
In 2014, the four original members of KISS — Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss — were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but Stanley and Simmons refused to perform with Frehley and Criss. KISS ended up not performing at all.
