(Newser) – John "Sib" Hashian, former drummer for the arena rock band Boston, died on board a cruise ship Wednesday, the AP reports. He was 67. His son, Adam Hashian, said Thursday a cause of death had not yet been determined. Hashian was listed as one of the featured performers on the Legends of Rock Cruise, which departed from Miami on Saturday and was scheduled to visit Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.

Hashian played on Boston's first two hit records, their self-titled debut album in 1976, featuring the hit song "More Than a Feeling," and the 1978 followup, Don't Look Back. The original band, made up of Tom Scholz, Brad Delp, Barry Goudreau, Fran Sheehan, and Hashian, had one of the most successful debut records in history, selling more than 17 million copies, with the singles "Long Time" and "Peace of Mind."
