From 1983 until 1994, he was a member of the band.

When the band came together, it recognized itself as the driving force behind the band.
There also were no specifics about how or where he died.
In a tweet, singer-songwriter Jon Bon Jovi said that Alec was “integral to the band’s inception”.
It’s true that we first met through him.
Bon Jovi also claims he invited guitarist and songwriter Richie Sambora, a childhood friend of drummer Tico Torres, to watch the band play.
A tear rolled down his cheek as he said, “Those wonderful memories still bring me joy and happiness to this day.” “He’ll be sorely missed.”
The beginning of Bon Jovi’s bassist
According to the Associated Press, Such, was born on November 14, 1951, in New York City.
Quickly rose to prominence in the New Jersey music scene, where the band had its genesis.
The Message was the name of his first band.
Before joining Jon Bon Jovi & The Wild Ones.
He was the manager of the Hunka Bunka Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey.
After that, the Asbury Park Press said that he said he was older than his bandmates.
A few years back, he stated, “The record label would lie about my age.” “I joined at the age of 31.
I was at least ten years older than the other members of the group.
My elder sister finally became enraged since the documents incorrectly stated that she was my older sibling.
He cited the age disparity as a factor in his decision to go.
It wasn’t until I was 43 that I began to feel the effects of burnout.
In my mind, it seemed like a chore, and a chore felt like labor to me.
I joined a band in the first place because I was tired of having to go to work. “
Hugh John McDonald took his place.
But he came back for the band’s 2018 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
As far back as I can remember, Jon Bon Jovi contacted me and begged me to join his band.
It wasn’t long before I realized that he was taking things very seriously and had a goal in mind for us.
“At the time, he stated this.
I’m grateful to have been a part of that vision.
