CLEVELAND, Ohio — A new artifact is on exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Bonnie Raitt’s resonator guitar was chosen via an online member vote, beating out an electric guitar owned by Neil Schon of Journey, an outfit worn by Jon Anderson of YES and an electric guitar used by Josh Klinghoffer’s Red Hot Chili Peppers.

According to a release from the Rock Hall, Bonnie Raitt used the guitar for both touring and recording, including on the track “Cry On My Shoulder” from her 1989 album “Nick of Time.” The album was Raitt’s commercial breakthrough and won three Grammy Awards.

The guitar will remain on display through next year’s vote and is featured in the Ahmet Ertegun Main Exhibition Hall, adjacent to the Right Here, Right Now exhibit.

We are rocked to the core to hear of the passing of our dear friend, bandmate and musical genius, Mike Finnigan. He fought his long illness with the same fearlessness and ferocity he brought to every part of his life. Our deepest condolences go out to Candy, Kelly, Bridget and all his family.

Mike was one of the most powerful, virtuosic soul/gospel/blues singers and Hammond B3 players you’ll ever be blessed to hear. Respected and emulated by musicians the world over, his legacy of staggering
performances across his 60+ years career will stand the test of time. He stopped our show nearly every night. There was simply no one like him.

He was whipsmart, incredibly articulate and funny as hell. He was as devoted to his beloved family and friends as he was to helping so many struggling to get and stay sober. He and his wife Candy were instrumental in my own sobriety and I will be forever grateful.

Rest in peace, dear Mike. I know you’ll be shaking that Heavenly Choir to new heights as only you can do.

Here’s a clip from our 2013 Slipstream tour, where he tore up the place every night with Ray Charles’ iconic “I’ve Got News for You.”
