Another musician is gone too soon. John Thomas “Sib” Hashian, drummer for the band Boston, passed away at the age of 67 after he collapsed during a show on March 22, according to TMZ. No further details as to why he collapsed, or if he was ill at the time, have been disclosed.
Sib’s son, Adam, told the site that his father suddenly collapsed during the middle of Boston’s set on the Legends of Rock Cruise. An eye witness told the site that CPR was performed on Sib and a defibrillator was used.
Suzanne Hashian, Sib’s wife of 38 years, confirmed his death on March 23. “It is with deep and profound sadness I share the news of my husband’s, John ‘Sib’ Hashian, the drummer formerly of the band Boston, sudden death,” she told ABC affiliate, WCVB.
Sib also has a daughter, Lauren Hashian, 32, who is actually the girlfriend of actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, 44. The two have one child together, a baby girl, Jasmine Johnson, 1.
The Legends of Rock Cruise that Sib was on when he passed, started off in Florida on March 18, and had various stops in places such as Puerto Rico and the Bahamas, according to TMZ. The cruise will reportedly still go on despite Sib’s unexpected death. However, musical tributes have been planned for March 23.
Sib was best known for donning his signature afro back in the day, and he is famously part of Boston’s massive 1976 hit, “More Than A Feeling.”
Our thoughts are with Sib’s family and friends during this difficult time.
