Bon Jovi Death Hoaxer Explains Himself
THe rumour was started by a Pennsylvania musicianRolling Stone reports that Jeffrey Goho told the Asbury Park Press that he was frustrated the rock star appeared to be concentrating on business endeavors that have nothing to do with music.
"All I heard was 'Bon Jovi this,' 'Bon Jovi's starting a restaurant,'" Goho told the paper. "What was the latest one? The Advil commercial? It was like, 'Jeez, [Bon Jovi] was a household name due to music, not business.'"
Goho admitted that he was wrong, though, saying that he had come to realise Bon Jovi's fame had "made the tri-state area prosper, hence more musicians having more available places to go, more people to play to, and I was quite wrong."
"None of this was expected, so I'm not going to sit here and complain about it," said Goho, "but it wasn't my initial intention. I never really thought it would get out of the state of Pennsylvania."
