Popular 70's Rock Star Dead At 67

The music industry lost another talent last week.

Sib Hashian, best known as the original drummer for the rock group Boston has suddenly passed away after collapsing on stage during a performance last Wednesday.

According to TMZ, the musician son, Adam, confirmed that his father was on the Legends of Rock Cruise when the tragic incident took place. Despite resuscitation efforts, the 67-year-old rocker couldn't be revived.

Sib along with his Boston bandmates were known for their iconic 1976 hit, More Than a Feeling.

He is survived by his children, Adam, Aja and Lauren, who is in a relationship with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

The Rock shared a heartfelt post on Instagram following Sib's passing dubbing him as his "second dad" and noting that the manner in which he died "is extremely poetic and somehow beautiful."

Rest In Peace & Love to my second dad Sib Hashian. Don't know why things have to happen the way they do sometimes. When loved ones leave us so suddenly without having a chance to say goodbye. Perhaps the lesson here is the reminder to live our lives as full and as present as we possibly can, because we just never know what's around the corner. What a full and exciting life this man lived. What an amazing family he created, loved, watched over and protected. Being on stage, in front of adoring fans, friends and family. Keeping the beat one last time. Your passing in this manner is extremely poetic and somehow beautiful. Thank you for the many life lessons you've taught over the years. Grateful. We love you Sib. We miss you. Yhmwitcoltroml. "Hasan burgers" for everyone in heaven.
