Goodbye to another amazing celebrity, this time at the age of 70.
Despite the fact that Alec John Such was listed as the bass player on the first Bon Jovi albums, the majority (if not all) of the bass tracks were allegedly recorded by their current bass player Hugh McDonald.
Including coming up with the trademark bass lines in Living On A Prayer, his death news has made him even more famous. It looks that his band has been through more heartbreak than his followers.
By listening to the records they recorded together, his band members are undoubtedly remembering their dear band member.
The cause of Alec’s death has yet to be revealed, despite the fact that his band Bonjovi announced his death on social media.
Bonjovi Band Reveals The News Of Their ‘Dear Friends Death’
The band announces the death of Alec John on their Instagram page. The band stated that they are heartbroken to lose a band member and friend like him, but that they have found a way forward because of him.
They also stated that he was full of light and that his memories would always be with each member of the band.
“We are heartbroken to hear the news of the passing of our dear friend Alec John Such. He was an original. As a founding member of Bon Jovi, Alec was integral to the formation of the band.
To be honest, we found our way to each other thru [sic] him – He was a childhood friend of Tico and brought Richie to see us perform. Alec was always wild and full of life. Today those special memories bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. We’ll miss him dearly,” the band noted.
