Who was Alec John Such? Exploring legacy of bassist associated with Bon Jovi following his death at 70

General0 Views

Alec John Such died at age 70. He was the first bassist for the band Bon Jovi and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In a social media post on Sunday, the band said that their former bassist had died. But no one knows what caused his death yet.

Keyboardist David Bryan, who asked Such to join Jon Bon Jovi’s band after “Runaway” became a hit in his home country, wrote about Such in a separate tweet: “It’s been a pleasure to work with you.”

“Rest in peace, my brother… It was a pleasure and an honour to share the stage and life with you…

From their 1983 self-titled album to 1992’s Keep the Faith, he played bass on songs like “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” and “I’ll Be There for You,” which became big hits. When Such left the band in 1994, Hugh McDonald was hired to take his place.

What is known about the late bassist of Bon Jovi, Alec John Such?

Alec John Such was born in Yonkers, New York, on November 14, 1952. He is an American musician who used to play bass for Bon Jovi. John Such was a veteran performer on the New Jersey rock circuit in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Before he joined the band with John Bongiovi in the early 1980s, he played a tribute to Phantom of the Opera with Queen and worked with Richie Sambora on The Message.

John Such ran the Hunka Bunka Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, at the time, and he booked an early Bon Jovi band to play there.

John Such brought in Tico Torres and Sambora, who also played in the Jersey circuit. Bon Jovi, on the other hand, brought in David Bryan, a childhood friend who used to be in the band Atlantic City Expressway.

Slippery When Wet, the band’s third album, sold 12 million copies and was a huge hit. Its follow-up, New Jersey, came out in 1988 and was just as popular, getting the band a summer gig at Giants Stadium in their home state.

John Such left Bon Jovi in 1994 because he was tired. In 2018, when the group was added to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he met up with his friends.

Hugh McDonald took over as a bassist. He had already played on a few albums since Bon Jovi’s first one. But he is not a “official” member of the band because Alec’s spot was not filled by him. So, he is not on the cover art or marketing photos for the album.

Since he left Bon Jovi, Such has been in charge of a few New Jersey bands, and he now runs a motorcycle shop in New York City.

In the United States, Alec John Such has a net worth of about $10 million.
