He adds that Alec was also, by and largely responsible for Bon Jovi coming together in the first place — mentioning how he was friends with Tico Torres and Richie Sambora at the time and introduced everyone.

JBJ said that the memories bring a smile on his face and a tear to my eye. The circumstances surrounding his death were not disclosed.

As Jon noted, Alec was there since the beginning — he played with Bon Jovi from 1983 through 1994, including their heyday. He was a part of hits such as “Livin’ on a Prayer”, “You Give Love A Bad Name”, “Wanted Dead or Alive,” and “Keep the Faith,” among others.

While he departed from the band in the ’90s, Such rejoined them for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

He was 70.

RIP
