Mark Abrahamian, the lead guitarist for the band Starship, suffered a heart attack following a concert in Nebraska Sunday night and passed away. He was 46.

According to The Associated Press, Abrahamian collapsed in the group's dressing room following a performance in Norfolk. He was then taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

Wrote Starship on Facebook:

"We are all shocked and saddened at the sudden loss of our guitar player Mark Abrahamian. Mark was a kind, thoughtful and innovative soul. He was also a friend and family member. Mark also happened to be one hell of a guitar player. We are devastated by the loss of our brother and just dealing with it the best we can."

Abrahamian joined the band - whose hits include "We Built This City" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" - over a decade ago. We send our thoughts and prayer to his family and friends.
