Never say goodbye to Jon Bon Jovi -- well, at least not yet, anyway. Because he's not dead!

On Monday, a troubling rumor stormed the web claiming that the "You Give Love a Bad Name" rocker, 49, had died while touring in his native New Jersey.

His rep quickly assured Us Weekly that the rumor was just that. "He's alive and well and performing yet another charity gig in Red Bank, NJ," the rep told Us Monday night.

And the still-dreamy frontman himself poked fun at the death hoax with a pic posted on his Twitter and Bon Jovi's Facebook page.

Clad in a trademark black t-shirt and silver chain necklace, Bon Jovi posed in front of a Christmas tree on Monday with the caption, "Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey -jbj. Rest assured that Jon is fine! This photo was just taken."
