THE BAND Members of the band Boston shown in 1976 included Brad Delp Tom Scholz Sib Hashian Fran Sheehan and Barry Goudreau

Soon after his fall, CPR was performed in an attempt to resuscitate the musician, but all efforts were unsuccessful. HASHIAN was a performer on the eight-day cruise, which departed MARCH 18th from MIAMI, FL, on MSC CRUISE's DIVINA ship.

Boston drummer Sib Hashian has passed away after collapsing on stage.

Rest in peace, Sib Hashian. Hashian's son Adam said that the cause of his father's death had yet to be determined. He stuck with the band as they released their sophomore album, Don't Look Back in 1978, which also enjoyed massive success, ultimately going Platinum seven times. The album, which included the smash hit "More Than a Feeling", sold upwards of 25 million copies, making it among the biggest sellers in music history.

The news was first reported today by TMZ, and Ernie Boch, who played with Hashian in his band the Automatics, confirmed the news via WCVB.




Hashian, who called Lynnfield home, owned a record shop and a string of tanning salons in Boston.

His daughter, Lauren, has been in a relationship with actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson since 2007.

His wife, Suzanne Hashian, said in a statement that arrangements would be made at a later date.
