It’s no secret that Bon Jovi had a tough go following up their self-titled debut album with Jon Bon Jovi even saying of ‘7800° Fahrenheit,’ “I always overlook the second album. Always have, always will.” Despite this, “In and Out of Love” is still a really great rock song and is another example of Tico Torres really being a damn good drummer.

Sad news today as it has been reported by the Bon Jovi band that Original Bon Jovi Bassist Alec John Such has passed away at the age of 70

Alec left the band in 1994 replaced by Hugh Mc Donald and many NJ rock natives may remember him from his club days in the band Phantom’s Opera.

The band posted on their Social Media sites….

“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 [sic] 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 tear to my eye. We’ll miss him dearly”….

What a New Jersey memory below……Rest In Peace Alec.
