Warrant Lead Singer, Jani Lane Found Dead at 47

Who could forget this face?


Wow. Another rocker dead–probably from substance abuse. Former Warrant lead-singer Jani Lane was found dead at a Comfort Inn in Woodland Hills, California today.

via TMZ:

“Lane famously penned the band’s biggest hit “Cherry Pie” back in 1989 … before eventually leaving the band to pursue a solo career.

Lane had a history of alcohol-related issues — he was ordered to serve 120 days in jail after he was arrested for DUI in 2010 … his second DUI in two years.

Lane was 47.

RIP, Jani.

Again, no cause of death has been announced, but I guess we can theorize that it may be have been from one substance or another given his history. Sad story, indeed.

RIP, Jani.
