RIP Jack Sherman


I know I’m one among so many shocked people tonight with the sad news that Jack Sherman has passed away. He apparently died on Thursday from a heart attack, but the news has only broken publicly tonight.

Jack was the guitarist on the first RHCP album after joining the band to replace founding guitarist, Hillel Slovak, who had left the Chili Peppers to concentrate his other group What is This. Jack was very active on Facebook in recent years and interacted with many RHCP fans e.g. sending birthday greetings and editing photos for them- a hobby of his and his edited photos of celebrities featured heavily on his Facebook page. I know he will be sadly missed for his friendships as well as his skills as a guitarist.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jack’s family and friends at this very sad time.

About Squitherwitch

I've been a RHCP fan ever since I heard Under The Bridge way back in the mists of time. I brought BSSM and then their other albums but RHCP were just another band I listened to (I was a massive GNR fan at the time) but that changed once I heard Californication! I've been involved with the online RHCP scene since 2006, getting more heavily involved as time passed, and eventually the time was right to set up my own website dedicated to the band and thus, TheChiliSource was born. Since then I've also set up along with various Twitter, Facebook & Tumblr pages connected to my websites and RHCP.
