Alexander "Alec" John Such (born November 14, 1951) is a retired American musician.

He is the former bass guitarist for the rock band Bon Jovi, playing in the band from 1983 until his dismissal in 1994. Band members agreed that they would not officially replace Such, and he was replaced unofficially by Hugh McDonald, who had already played bass guitar on "Runaway" on Bon Jovi's debut album. However, in 2016, the band announced that McDonald had become an official member.

After leaving Bon Jovi, Such has managed a couple of local New Jersey bands, and also owns a motorcycle shop in New York City. Such managed the Chicago-based rock band 7th Heaven in 1998 along with James Young of the band Styx.

Such joined Bon Jovi at Giants Stadium at the end of their One Wild Night Tour in July 2001. Afterwards he retired from the music industry.
