Alec John Such, the original bassist of Bon Jovi, has died at the age of 70.
The band posted the following message on social media earlier today, June 5th:
“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 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.”
