CLEVELAND, OH - The 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony was particularly important this year with the long anticipated induction of Bon Jovi. With Howard Stern doing the introduction, it was a spectacle.
Howard Stern was none to pleased with how long the committee took to induct the band. “Bon Jovi has sold 130 million albums.”, remarked Stern. To make his point, he compared that to a set of remarkable comparisons. One of the most well received (by the audience and band) was the observation by Stern that each male ejaculation contained only 100 million sperm. Stern proclaimed, “Bon Jovi is bigger than sperm!”
