And as mentioned above these are the other two mags Alec appeard in:

KERRANG! No.501 July 02 1994:
RAW-magazine no. 154, July 20th 1994

After reading the Kerrang article, did a bit of searching and found this gem:

26th June, 1994 "Night of 100 Guitars" @ Wembley, London UK (Paul Rodgers, Slash & Alec John Such):

And this is Bon Jovi @ MTV Movie Awards in 1994 with Alec playing "Good Guys...":

And here's Bon Jovi & others @ Brit Awards show on 15th February 1994 and I guess no Alec on bass, rather than guy named Kazim Sultan (according to that Kerran article):

Good Guys Don't Always Wear White - MTV Movie Awards 1994-07-18
Always - Festivalbar (playback) 1994-09-03
Always TOTP (playback) 1994-09-07
Always Niagara Falls TOTP (playback) 1994-09-22
Always MTV Studios, London 1994-10-08
Always (acoustic) TROS, NL - 1994-10-10(?)

It seems that the TROS show is Alec’s last known live performance in 1994.

Interesting to see that timeframe since the public perception for a long time was that he'd been fired because of those 2 interviews from July.
But obviously there were 3 month more in which more stuff must have been happened which led to that decision.

It must suck to have the name of a band tattoed on your shoulder and then get fired from said band. It would be much worse if said band name was your former boss's last name... :/ poor Alec....

I would love for him to release a tell all autobiography, or better yet, return to the band. Doubt that either would happen though.
I miss Alec in the band. He was cool as ****.

Raw magazine 154, July 20th 1994

Does Alec think that Bon Jovi have got out of control?
“I don’t really think so,” such says cautiously.“But what I intended it to be and what Jon wanted are two different things. I wanted to have fun, but then those guys wrote a hit song, and now there is so much pressure to keep having hit songs. I’ve always felt that you write a song and *others*(originally in cursive print) will tell you it’s a hit, you don’t write a song to be a hit and tell everyone,‘This is a hit song’.

This is it. Straight from the horses mouth back in 1994. This is one of the key reasons Richie left 19 years later.
