Sad news for rockers all over the world.
Original BON JOVI bassist Alec John Such has died at the age of 70.
Legendary Jon Bon Jovi broke this news on his social channels, saying:
“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 him — He was a childhood friend of Tico [Torres] and brought Richie [Sambora] to see us perform.
Jon Bon Jovi added:
“Alec was always wild and full of life. Today these special memories bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. We will miss him dearly.”
