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.
