RIP – JANI LANE


EXPIRED: 08/11/11 – Jani Lane, 47, was born John Kennedy Oswald in Ohio. He was the sometime drummer and lead vocalist of the 80’s hair metal band Warrant, known for their debut album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich with the singles “Heaven,” “Down Boys” and “Sometimes She Cries.” Their second album, Cherry Pie, had 3 more hit singles, “Cherry Pie,” “I Saw Red,” and “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” Both albums made the Top 10. But internal fighting and subsequent quitting, rejoining and quitting the band made Warrant less vital and after a crap solo record, his big claim to fame was being on the reality show Celebrity Fit Club, getting a well-publicized DUI charge in 2010, and serving 120 days in jail. He was found dead at the Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills, California.
