Former Boston drummer Sib Hashian dies onstage

March 23, 2017

Former Boston drummer Sib Hashian — who not only had one of the greatest afros in history, but was likely one of the most air-drummed musicians ever – died onstage Wednesday.


Hashian’s son Adam reportedly told TMZ the 67-year-old was performing on a Legends of Rock cruise when he suddenly collapsed during the set. CPR was performed and a defibrillator was used with no luck.


The cruise began March 18 in Florida and was traveling to various places, including the Bahamas and Puerto Rico. TMZ reported the cruise will continue with other musicians paying tribute to Hashian.

Hashian played on Boston’s self-titled debut record, which was released in 1976 and sold more than 17 million copies.


Hashian’s daughter, Lauren, has a daughter with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Boston is scheduled to play the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View with Joan Jett on June 14.
