Bucks County Resident Reveals He Started Jon Bon Jovi Hoax
Jeffrey Goho, a musician from Fairless Hills, Pa has revealed that he started the Jon Bon Jovi death hoax earlier this month. Goho did so to protest JBJ's non musical activities.
Goho now admits he was wrong.
“All I heard was ‘Bon Jovi this,’ ‘Bon Jovi’s starting a restaurant.’ What was the latest one? The Advil commercial? It was like, ‘Jeez, Bon Jovi was a household name due to the music, not the business.’ So 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.”
Goho started the hoax on a friends Twitter account, but did not expect worldwide re-tweeting of his prank on the evening of December 19th. Goho tweeted that Jon was found in a coma at the Empress Hotel in Asbury Park. Hundreds of reporters hung out at Jersey Shore Medical Center to learn of Jon's condition.
But Jon was just fine as he was getting ready to preform with Bobby Bandiera, Southside Johnny and New Jersey 101.5's Big Joe Henry at the Hope Concert to benefit The Cancer Institute of New Jersey at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank.
Goho says he's been getting a “s#$tload of backlash from my most recent stunt” and adds "I never really thought it would get out of the state of Pennsylvania."
