Video of Bon Jovi's induction during 33rd annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Cleveland's Public Auditorium on Saturday, April 14th has been posted online. "I've been writing a speech like this since I first strummed a broom and sang from the top of the stairs of my childhood home," said Bon Jovi. "I've written it many ways and many times. Some days, I write the Thank You speech. Other days, I write the F*** You speech. Writing it has been therapeutic in a lot of ways. I certainly see things differently tonight than I would have 10, 20, 30 years ago. In the end, it's really all about time." Former guitarist Richie Sambora added: "If I wrote a book, it would be called The Best Time I Ever Had." According to BW$BW the band then took the stage for a four-song set that featured: "You Give Love A Bad Name", "It's My Life", "When We Were Us" and "Livin' On A Prayer".
