Rocker Becomes Target of Bon Jovi Fans After Fake Death Hoax

From Facebook

We can relax.  We now know where the rumor that Bon Jovi died originated.

A Pennsylvania band member has become the target of angry Bon Jovi fans after confessing he sparked the hoax suggesting Jon Bon Jovi had died just before Christmas.

Jeffrey Goho of a Pennsylvania-based rock band “Minutia” admitted to writing a fake press release stating the Jon had died after falling into a coma in a New Jersey hotel then posting it online. In an interview with the Asbury Park Press, he says,

“All I heard was ‘Bon Jovi this,’ ‘Bon Jovi starting a restaurant.’ The Advil commercial. It was like, ‘Jeez, (Bon Jovi) was a household name due to music, not business.”

“Long story short, [my band and I] got so worked up in the conversation, I just kind of took the liberty and started (the rumor), because I was so irritated.”

No word on whether Jon will take any legal action, but even Jon had fun with it, posting a picture on his Facebook page with the date and his signature.

The funniest part of the story?  At the height of the online popularity of his death rumor Jon Bon Jovi was actually performing onstage.
