Former drummer of legendary rock band Boston, Sib Hashian, recently passed away. HASHIAN was a performer on the eight-day cruise, which departed MARCH 18th from MIAMI, FL, on MSC CRUISE's DIVINA ship.

After he suddenly collapsed mid-set, CPR was performed and a defibrillator was used to no avail and the rock star died at age 67, according to TMZ.

Accompanying Hashian on the cruise were fellow ex-band member Barry Goudreau, former Foreigner singer Lou Gramm, former Beach Boy David Marks and former Kansas singer John Elefante, according to Ultimate Classic Rock.

Besides his son, Sib is survived by two daughters, Asa and Lauren Hashian. He also played on Boston's next album, "Don't Look Back".

RB Eddie Lacy agrees to terms with Seahawks
Free agent running back Eddie Lacy will leave the Green Bay Packers for the Seattle Seahawks, according to multiple reports. Seattle ranked 20th in the league in rushing attempts a year ago , but that was well ahead of Green Bay, which ranked 29th.

He contributed to Boston comeback album Third Stage in 1986 but was eventually replaced when Masdea was welcomed back into the fold.

He appeared on Boston's 1976 self-titled debut, playing on all but one track - but only after Scholz painstakingly guided Hashian through the album's original six-song demo, so that his performance matched Masdea's.

Although "More Than a Feeling" was Boston's biggest hit, I always had a soft spot for the lesser-known track "Something About You", which I'm gonna crank right now. He also became a business owner of a record shop as well as a chain of tanning parlors in Boston.
