The hoax was first posted on a WordPress hosted blog – dailynewbloginternational.wordpress.com, which users on the social networking sites are sharing the link to the blog post.

He captioned the snap on Facebook as: “Rest assured that Jon is alive and well! This photo was just taken.”
This clearly indicates that Jon Bon Jovi still alive and kicking!
