Hashian is heard on Boston"s self-titled debut album, as well as on the follow-up Don"t Look Back, although the drum parts he played on many tracks were note-for-note transcriptions of Masdea"s original drum arrangements. Hashian was involved in the early sessions for Boston"s Third Stage album, but was later replaced when Masdea returned. After leaving Boston, Hashian sued Boston band leader Tom Scholz for back royalties and the two later settled out of court.
Other projects and recent history
Hashian was also the drummer for fellow Boston member Barry Goudreau"s self-titled solo album which was released in 1980.
Boston and the Barry Goudreau album were the last mainstream projects Hashian worked on. He went on to own a chain of tanning salons in Boston, as well as a small record shop.
He occasionally plays gigs in the Boston area with former bandmates, including Goudreau, Fran Sheehan and also, prior to the singer"s suicide in 2007, Brad Delp. In 2004 he returned to the stage at the Tremont Theater for the Boston premiere of "9-Ball" which he also produced along with Ernie Boch Junior.
In 2006 he recorded with Ernie and the Automatics, a band that features Goudreau on guitar.
In 2012 he began co-hosting Scorch"s PFG-television, a local television show in New England, episodes of which were regularly featured on the Opie and Anthony Show, although each segment was centered on mocking PFG-television"s entire show.
