"If I'm dead do I still have to pay taxes?" the 52-year-old rocker wrote. He later posted a photo of an apparent apparition above a mixing board. 

The death rumors spread on Tuesday after being published by a fake MSNBC site, leading fans to tweet their condolences. This is the same site that posted a false claim about actor Macaulay Culkin's supposed death last month.
