Former “Boston” Drummer Sib Hashian Dies During Cruise Ship Performance

On March 18th, The Legends of Rock Cruise began in Florida, with scheduled stops in Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.

Sib Hashain, who was with Boston in it’s early days, was playing the cruise, and collapsed half-way through his set last night, according to TMZ. Neither CPR or the use of a defibrillator could save Hashian.

Hashian was part of Boston’s self-titled album, which includes the 98.7K-LUV listeners favorite, “More Than A Feeling”.

As for the cruise, the show must go on, and other musicians will play tributes to Sib today.

Sib Hashian leaves behind his daugher Aja Hashian, Lauren Hashian (in a relationship with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson”, the father of her daughter).

Sib hadn’t been with Boston for over 3 decades according to Boston’s publicist, who shared their deepest sympathies.

Sib was 67.

Sincerest condolences to “Boston”, their fans, and those closest to Sib Hashian.
