Jack Sherman, a guitarist who joined the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers for its debut album and first U.S. tour, has died at age 64, the band said.
“He was a unique dude and we thank him for all times good, bad and in between. Peace on the boogie platform,” RHCP said on Instagram.
Sherman’s cause of death has not been released.
“We of the RHCP family would like to wish Jack Sherman smooth sailing into the worlds beyond, for he has passed. Jack played on our debut album as well as our first tour of the USA. He was a unique dude and we thank him for all times good, bad and in between. Peace on the boogie platform,” the band’s full statement reads.
According to a CNN report, Sherman was the second of at least eight guitarists with the chart-topping band over the years.
The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012; however, Sherman was not included, according to CNN.
