Alec John Such: Bon Jovi’s former bassist
We have so many rock musicians, and we describe them as legends. These are the ones, the people who make hit songs which will never be forgotten, in both music history, and, the music industry. Alec John Such is one of those musicians who will never be forgotten as he`s well known for his incredible talent for playing bass. Most rock artists desire to wake up one day and find themselves in the same band with this star, and Such is one of the people in the music industry that many upcoming bassists would love to emulate. 66-year-old Alec John Such was born in Yonkers, New York. The bassist came from a poor background and when he was a child, he worked as a bootblack. Such’s father played a Gypsy Hungarian instrument called the cimbalem though he didn`t like it. His mother played the violin and also wanted Such to play it too. He met a group that played around his house when he was a teenager and that band needed a bassist, so he decided to do grab and take hold of the opportunity. Without much information on how to do it he started with a borrowed bass, and with time he learned how to play the instrument perfectly. Such played in bands such as Cold Sweat and Phantom Opera. John Such worked on many albums including: “Keep the Faith”, “7800° Fahrenheit”, “Bon Jovi”, “New Jersey” and “Slippery When Wet,” which positively affected his net worth. He was inducted Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.
Such Reunites with His colleagues at the Rock Hall Inductions
“Bon Jovi`s” David Bryan and Tico Torres are expecting an emotional night on April 14 in Cleveland where the group including founding members Richie Sambora and Alec John Such will be inducted in the Hall of Fame. Drummer Torres told “Billboard” on a conference call with reporters they he needed help in order promote the second North American leg of Bon Jovi`s 'This House Is Not For Sale Tour,' kicking off on March 14 in Denver. Bryan confirmed that the reunited Bon Jovi musicians would play some songs with the former members in the ceremony. We`re looking forward to that since John Such left the group in 1994 and now it will be the first time Such will play with Bon Jovi since an on-off appearance back in 2001 and Sambora`s first time as well after departing in 2013. Bon Jovi will receive the Icon Award on March 11th at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and he is releasing the new songs so that Such can refresh his tour, 'This House Is Not for Sale.' John Such also intends to include them in the show, but Bryan doesn`t view them as a harbinger of the group moving over albums from individual songs though he is sure they usually make records. Bryan says that they love to mix up old and new songs which is what keeps it fresh. They got so many to choose from which makes them change sets each night, swap out a couple of songs. “The new songs are what that makes it fun and fresh” Torres added. They pinch themselves to the fact that they are amazing since then up to date.
