Former Red Hot Chili Peppers Guitarist Jack Sherman Dead at Age 64


Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Jack Sherman has passed away at the age of 64. The cause of death is not yet known.

Sherman appeared on RHCP’s eponymous 1984 debut. He also co-wrote a substantial amount of the material on the band’s sophomore effort, Freaky Styley (1985), although he does not actually play on that album.

Said the Red Hot Chili Peppers in a statement:

“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.”
