Warrant lead singer, Jani Lane died.
Warrant former lead-singer, Jani Lane was found dead Thursday in a Woodland Hills hotel, Los Angeles.
The lead singer of Warrant, the Hollywood metal rock band, Jani Lane, 47, was found dead in a Woodland Hills hotel on Thursday evening, according to the officer Sara Faden. She added there was no immediate information on the cause or circumstances of Jani Lane’s death.
With his long blond hair and tight leather outfits, Jani Lane embodied the excess of 1980s “hair metal” rock bands.
Jani Lane, born John Kennedy Oswald in Akron, Ohio on February 1, 1964, adopted his stage name in the early ’80s before he moved to LA and joining Warrant.
Jani Lane joined Warrant in 1984 and created the Warrant’s biggest hits “Heaven”, “Down Boys”, “Cherry Pie” and “Sometimes She Cries”,which displayed the yin and yang of teenage desire.
In the “Cherry Pie”, Warrant celebrates the woman describing her as a “cherry pie” and the result was a scream-along anthem tailor-made for testosterone-fueled pop metal heads and the women who loved them.
However, as a self-respecting metal band, Warrant and the bleached-blond Lane had a softer side, that could be seen on full display in the video for “Heaven,” a love ballad with the slow motion images of Jani Lane and the band enjoying their rock-star lives. We can see Lane showing off his tattoo, swinging around on a band member’s back, performing at massive outdoor concerts, dancing in the back of a limousine, signing ecstatic fans’ T-shirts and twirling in front of the mike stand, his perfectly coiffed hair shining like a lion’s mane.
The albums Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich (1989) and Cherry Pie (1990) went double platinum.
Warrant and Jani Lane rose on the Sunset Strip circuit in the mid 80’s alongside kindred spirits Guns N’ Roses, but, ironically, one of their early fans was funk singer Prince, who tried to sign with the band to his Paisley Park imprint. Warrant eventually signed with Columbia Records.
Their wave of success lasted until early 90’s. Jani Lane had an on-and-off relationship with the band, leaving it in 1992 before returning and quitting again several times. At that time, grunge had replaced metal on the rock charts and the band’s hits stopped coming
Eventually he left the band to pursue a solo career. In 2005 Lane joined VH1′s Celebrity Fit Club. He rejoined Warrant in 2008 only to leave it again months later, for good.
According to TMZ, Lane had a history of alcohol-related issues, and was arrested twice on DUI charges.
Celebrities reacted to former Warrant singer death on Twitter: Dane Cook said, “RIP Jani Lane your music was my youth.”
From glam rock contemporary Bret Michaels: “We’d like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Jani Lane regarding their loss,” wrote the Poison singer.
Jani Lane is survived by two daughters from two previous marriages.
