RIP: Jani Lane (Lead Singer of Warrant)

Jani Lane, the lead singer of Warrant was found dead today at the age of 47.  We will admit, that this was not one of our favorite bands.  They were a little on the cheesy side even by their own aerosol genre and were not exactly the most respected.  Regardless, they did make it and were the last of their kind to make it big before the Grunge boom took over.  Over twenty years later, and at a time when we are a liitle less pretentious about our music, Warrant is thought of by us as a fun band who was never meant to taken seriously.  Cherrie Pie is no longer a guilty pleasure, but a bit of an "approaching middle aged" part anthem for us now.  We don't ever see them in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but they were among the select group of musicians who could say that they made it.   We'll celebrate that for today.

He would be briefly married to the video vixen from Cherry Pie, Bobbi Brown. She was as hot as anyone back then. Her career never took off, I actually saw her on an episode of Blind Date a few years ago.
