Bon Jovi Bassist, Alec John Such, Asked Friend For Help Just Before Passing Away

Alec John Such, original Bon Jovi member and bassist, passed away on Saturday, June 4. A friend who was staying with him at the time says Alec asked for help in the middle of the night. Accordingly, EMS was called and attempted to save him, but Alec was pronounced dead.

According to TMZ, the Chief Deputy Coroner for Horry County says Alec’s friend was woken up when Alec needed to use the bathroom. Evidently, the friend was asked to assist Alec back to his bed around 2:15 A.M. The friend checked back in with Alec afterwards but he was thereupon found dead. Presently, no foul play is suspected.

Singer Jon Bon Jovi recently commemorated his friend and longtime bandmate via Instagram.

A short caption of, “Alec, you will be missed” was posted three days ago.

The post contains three pictures, the second which has a longer statement.

“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.”

The third slide contains an “In Memoriam” video montage of Alec.

The Bon Jovi bassist was with the band from 1983 and 1994. He left but returned for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony. He was not part of the recent Bon Jovi tour.

Details of Alec’s death have not been released to the public.
