That's just sick to post fake info like that. I don't mean the OP, I mean the asshole who put it on a website.
Fuck off r8. I got sucked in and I apologized.
Boni Jovi was always a bit of a flake in Rock music, so a few aging Fraus might get upset if this actually ever happened, but no serious musician would morn the loss. His guitar player, maybe.....
He really will be preceded in death by his career.
C'mon OP - you post something based on a site like that, instead of checking a reputable site? If it ain't on CNN, BBC, or the NY Times site, it's not the truth. You should have known better.
I think you wanted your five minutes of drama.
He's a "legend"? With all due respect, what would that make Chuck Berry or Jerry Lee Lewis or Buddy Holly or Little Richard, or Elvis? Etc, etc!
OP needs to be banned.
Still 'Living on a Prayer".
DELETE THIS THREAD PLEASE
Did they pump out gallons of semen out of his stomach?
I don't blame OP for this; I've jumped the gun in my day.
Of all of the offensive crap posted on this site all the time, people are offended by THIS? WTF?
Fuck you, OP.
OP should have known better. This article was poorly written and riddled with errors. Don't you read, OP?
That pic at R25 is endearing and funny. Has the OP been banned yet?
God I hope they remove those veneers in the pic at the link. I'd hate to go to my next life with those choppers.
Guys there's no reason to believe that OP did this intentionally for fuck's sake. Relax.
"OP should have known better. This article was poorly written and riddled with errors. Don't you read, OP?"
You are assuming that honest reports of celebrity's death are never poorly written or riddled with errors. And you are assuming erroneously.
This one's almost as good as that Alyssa Milano death rumor that floated around here a year ago.
Farewell everyone, OP here.
Webmaster has advised me that I've been banned and that this will be my last post. Despite being here since 1999 and a paying member ever since that came into play, I guess this one f*ck up was just too much. I just wanted, for once, to start the thread that announced that big news. Every time I've tried, I always get r1 saying 'We already HAVE a thread!' and then linking to it. I should have known better. In grade school we put on the play '17 Snow whites and the 18 Dwarves'... and I still played a TREE!!
Just once I thought I would be queen of the Datalounge but instead I end up banned and humiliated.
I'm glad it's a hoax. I spent the afternoon tearfully spinning my favorite 45s of his that all turned out to be Huey Lewis and the News singles, but anyway I'm glad he's okay.
OP needs to be banned. I think he did it on purpose.
[quote]Yeah, we've covered that already, [R32], Check out [R25] for starters.
No, for starters check out R2, where the OP announced that it turned out to be fake and apologized.
I'll bet OP created the fake news page himself.
Plus, if the WM had banned him, he would also have taken down this thread.
This thread is full of hoaxes!
I couldn't care less about the rock world and its pathetic denizens. But Bon Jovi always seemed miles above above his colleagues--he was a civilized, disciplined, loving family man. To post a hoax about his death, if that's what it is, is nothing short of abhorrent and horrible.
Yes, r40, really. Do you know anything about the music world? Or anything?
empress motel was a lesbian joint back in the day and is now the big gay bar/hotel in town owned by Shep Pettibone..."Paradise"...and no such thing as north beach Asbury Park...so dorky...Us Joisey Girls know the 411
Please be advised that I am considering banning anyone who is arguing for the re-instatement of the OP of this thread.
I have had it.
r11 Fuck you. What do you know about anything. This guy has outlasted many "real" musicians who couldn't stay sober and killed themselves with drugs. Bon Jovi has not only sold over 100 million records, he has started many foundations for philathropic causes, donated millions and millions to Habitat for Humanity started a successful indoor football team whose profits go exclusively to charities, supports political candidates that he believes in. Not to mention, he's also a family man and has managed his band and brand successfully and pulled Richie Sambora away from self destruction. What do you do??
We want our money back.
Hi everybody, OP here.
I am sending this from a laptop that some schizophrenic kid is letting me use at the hospital. He says he’s fine but that the voices are getting a bit heavy so he checked in. He’s nice. Don’t tell the webmaster.
This whole experience has sort of spiralled out of control and here I am. As I said earlier, I never really get to stand out, be noticed, be recognized, and I guess I’ve spent much of my life focussed on this… in the end I just felt like a failure and this experience, while not the worst thing that has happened to me, was nonetheless the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. After being banned from Datalounge I went for a walk and I have to say that the world outside is quite nice. It’s cold but not freezing and there are some stars in the sky. I remembered how as a child I would look at the stars in amazement and wonder. When did I stop doing that? I stopped on a bridge over a river and gazed at the water below, reflecting the sky, flowing steadily… and I guess I decided that I’d had enough and decided to put an end to everything. I climbed the railing and jumped to the cold water below.
F*cking swimming lessons from grade school!! It seems you can’t just ‘will’ yourself to drown if you know how to swim. Despite myself I still struggled to the surface and caught my breath. I remembered why I lept and let myself go under again. No luck. I bobbed back to the surface and resumed breathing. I had no choice but to make my way to shore and begin slogging along in my cold soaked clothes. I made it two blocks when a police car pulled up. The cops were actually kind of cute. They said they had a report of a jumper and was I okay. I assured them that I was fine but they said they would have to take me to the hospital anyway. So here I am, under observation. The humiliating part is that they called my little brother, a successful lawyer with a wife and twin sons. I’m just some schmuck who lost his call centre job last October. Mom left us when I was 8 and he was 5, and Dad hanged himself three years ago next February.
In the end I guess what I take from all of this is that there is no escape from being dull unremarkable me. I don’t like being me. I would never choose to be me. But I guess I have to be me. It’s the only thing I’m remotely good at.
Why bump this fake thread?
Webmaster, could these fake thread trolls be banned after 1 or more? Some fan type could read these and have a heart attack (I know; MARY!)
