Boston‘s original drummer John “Sib” Hashian has died at just 67. According to TMZ he passed away after collapsing on board a cruise ship; his son Adam said his father was in the middle of a set on board the Legends Of Rock Cruise when he collapsed and could not be revived yesterday.
The Legends Of Rock Cruise departed Miami this past Saturday, with stops scheduled in St. Maarten, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. It was to return to Miami this Saturday, according to the itinerary on the cruise website.
Hashian played on Boston’s first two albums.
Meanwhile, Dwayne Johnson put up a heartfelt tribute:
Rest In Peace & Love to my second dad Sib Hashian. Don’t know why things have to happen the way they do sometimes. When loved ones leave us so suddenly without having a chance to say goodbye. Perhaps the lesson here is the reminder to live our lives as full and as present as we possibly can, because we just never know what’s around the corner. What a full and exciting life this man lived. What an amazing family he created, loved, watched over and protected. Being on stage, in front of adoring fans, friends and family. Keeping the beat one last time. Your passing in this manner is extremely poetic and somehow beautiful. Thank you for the many life lessons you’ve taught over the years. Grateful. We love you Sib. We miss you.

Love, Dr. Scott James
