Iconic rock star Ayub Bachchu, a celebrated guitarist, singer, song writer, composer and founder of rock band LRB, died of cardiac arrest at his Moghbazar residence in the capital yesterday at the age of 56, reports UNB.

Dr Mohammad Nazim Uddin, spokesperson of Square Hospitals Ltd, said the driver of Ayub Bachchu took him to the hospital around 9:40 am and doctors declared him dead around 9:55 am.

Bachchu made his debut in the music industry by giving voice in the song ‘Harano Bikeler Golpo’. In 1986, he released his first music album ‘Rakto Golap’. His success story began when his second album ‘Moyna’ was released.
