Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl was left shocked earlier this week (begs05FEB07), when he was listed online as having passed away.
The incident marks the second time Grohl has been pronounced dead by internet pranksters.
Grohl's details on online encyclopedia Wikipedia were altered to read "David Eric Grohl (January 14 1969 - February 5 2007)".
The rocker found out about his supposed demise when worried friends began calling offer his wife JORDYN their sympathy.
He says, "I got a phone message from a friend saying 'Er, I guess... Jordyn... this is maybe... for you. I'm so sorry to hear what happened.'
"I heard this message and went, 'What the f**k?' They were leaving a message on my cell phone saying 'I'm sorry Dave died.'
"That was weird, but I guess I've finally graduated to that status of being an internet rumour. It weirded me out a bit, but it's stupid. I'm like a cockroach, don't worry, I'll be around for a long time."
Grohl was previously announced as dead in May 2006. Other rock stars to have had their deaths prematurely announced include Sir Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, and Paul Weller.
