This Sunday, June 5, the world of music is in mourning, since the emblematic band Bon Jovi announced the death of its former bassist Alec John Such, who turned 70 on January 5.
The musician Alec Such was a member of the group since its foundation in 1983 and until 1994. The group headed by Jon Bon Jovi through social networks lamented said death.
In a statement, Bon Jovi said he had his heart for the news of the death. In addition, they described the artist as “an original man, a founding member of Bon Jovi, Alex was integral in the formation of the band”.
Days before Alec John Such death, Benedetta was reportedly unresponsive and taken to a hospital, where he was placed on a ventilator with symptoms of COVID-19. The cause of death was not disclosed.
The musician opened a thread to publish a video in memoriam of the bassist, in which we see some photographs of him, we hear words where he says “we had a lot of good times together” and we hear the song Blood On Blood. Likewise, we see images of an interview in which he assures us that the band is like a family.
To be honest, we found our way with each other through it.
“He was a childhood friend of Tico’s and brought Richie to see us live. Alec was always wild and full of life. Today those special memories bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. He will be sorely missed.” finished the band
Similarly, the group shared a video in which they collect photographs and unforgettable moments of Alec on stage.
Although his departure from the band Bon Jovi was much talked about, Alec played with the group at special events such as a 2001 concert and Bon Jovi’s performance when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2018.
