No Such Thing

“According to my tattoo artist,
this piece truly is a one-of-a-kind.
He said it’s the only time he’s ever seen a man
get a Bon Jovi tattoo.”

Alec John Such
Bassist, Jersey boy, stand-in.
November 14, 1951 – June 4, 2022.
Aged 70 years old.

Most recognized for: In their hair-metal heyday, he was the “original” bass player for Bon Jovi… or so it would seem. While Mr. Such was the one seen strutting around onstage & pouting for the cameras, his parts were often rearranged and rerecorded by session player Hugh MacDonald. But Hugh just didn’t look cool… and apparently, some myopic doofus thought Alec did. So when the demand for hairspray wore off in the mid-90’s, so did the need for Alec’s image… and Hugh finally got his due.
