Rocker faces fans' ire for Bon Jovi death hoax

Washington, Wed, 28 Dec 2011 ANI

Washington, Dec 28 (ANI): The rocker who spread rumours of Jon Bon Jovi's death has now become the target of angry fans after he confessed to his actions.


Jeffrey Goho from Pennsylvania, US, has admitted to penning a fake press release stating the 'You Give Love a Bad Name' singer had died after falling into a coma in a New Jersey hotel on 19 December, and posting it online.


Bon Jovi's representatives were quick to dismiss the hoax but not before the news reached worried fans.


"I'm in a band as well, and I was going into the recording studio, and we had talked about how the music industry just started taking a turn into crazy new worlds that no one, really, can assess," Contactmusic quoted Goho as telling Asbury Park Press.


"Long story short, I was talking to my band members on their down time, and we got so worked up in the conversation, I just kind of took the liberty and started (the rumour), because I was so irritated," he said.


However, now he admits his post has had serious consequences.


"I'm not proud of it. I'm getting a lot of backlash from it, but as stupid as it sounds, that's how it started. I just had a blurb and went with it," he said.


He has urged angry rock fans to stop sending 'hate mail' to his bandmates in Philadelphia-area group Minutia as "they are in no way involved". (ANI)
