Former lead singer for the eighties hair band Warrant, Jani Lane, was found dead at the young age of only 47.
He rose to fame with Warrant, with such hits like Cherry Pie and Heaven, in the eighties.
Jani went his separate way from the band and had a solo career. He most recently canceled his February tour dates, but had not provided a reason.
The singer was found dead at the Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills, California. There has been no apparent cause of death, but Jani did suffer from alcohol related issues.
He was previously arrested in 2010 for DUI and was ordered to serve 120 days in jail as a result. What a shame. He was a gifted singer and songwriter. May he rest in peace. “Heaven isn’t too far away”…
RIP Jani Lane (2/1/64-8/11/11)
