BOSTON (Combined Sources) — Sib Hashian, a former member of the rock group Boston, died after collapsing onstage on March 22.
Hashian’s wife, Suzanne, said the 67-year-old drummer collapsed while performing during the Legends of Rock Cruise.
“It is with deep and profound sadness I share the news of my husband’s, John ‘Sib’ Hashian, sudden death,” said Suzanne Hashian, his wife of 38 years.
Hashian played on Boston’s first two hit records, including their self-titled debut album in 1976 featuring the hit song More Than a Feeling, and their second album, “Don’t Look Back.”
Hashian, who called Lynnfield, Mass. home, owned a record shop and a string of tanning salons in Boston.
Hashian’s sudden passing prompted an outpouring of social media tributes among the classic rock community — and one particularly poignant post from actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who called Hashian his “second dad.”
