2 min read

One of the most talented bassists and the man who blessed the world with the legendary rock band Bon Jovi, Alex Jon Aise has died at the age of 70 and fans around the world are mourning.

Bon Jovi revealed the news of Alec’s death via Twitter, although the cause of Alec’s death has not yet been revealed to the public.

Alec was an important member of the group from 1983 to 1994 and was involved in the production of some of the band’s classic hits such as “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “Keep the Faith”.

Alec, along with the rest of the Bon Jovi line-up, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, where Alec returned for a brief performance and practically stole the entire show.

Alec was almost a decade older than the rest of Bon Jovi’s line-up, and this was one of the reasons he left the band early. Alec explained that he left the band in 1994 because he was starting to feel burned out by all the work of being the bassist of one of the biggest rock bands in the world. Alec explained that he left when he felt that all the music he had created and performed “began to feel like work.” Alec stated that he didn’t want to work because one of the reasons he first joined the band was to avoid work.

Before joining Bon Jovi and becoming one of the founding members, Alec had a full-time job, where he worked as the manager of the concert venue Hunca Bunca Ballroom. Naturally, this was the work Alec referred to when that statement was made.

The official Bon Jovi Twitter account talked about how Alec was always full of life and that the band and fans will remember him forever.

David Bryan, one of the other band members who were there from day one, also tweeted, “Rip, my soul brother. It was an honor and a pleasure to share the stage and life with you.”

The bassist will be missed and his memory will live on forever.
