A death in Ray Davies' family kept him from attending the Songwriters Hall of Fame Thursday, but Jon Bon Jovi closed the three-hour event by performing Kinks hits such as "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night". Davies, who was dealing with his sister's death, accepted the honor in a video, saying he was proud to be part of the 2014 class that included Donovan, Jim Weatherly, Graham Gouldman and Mark James. Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds received the Hal David Starlight award and performed a slow, piano version of the Grammy-winning "Radioactive," which he wrote along with his bandmates.The 26-year-old musician said songwriting had strengthened his relationship with his father, who Reynolds said worked a lot because he was raising nine children.
