In addition to his work with Boston, Hashian played on bandmate Barry Goudreau’s 1980 self-titled record. He also sang backing vocals on Sammy Hagar’s 1979 “Sittin’ On (The Dock of the ebony porn
Hashian, who called Lynnfield home, owned a record shop and a string of tanning salons in Boston.
Suzanne Hashian said arrangements will be announced at a later date.
