Warrant Singer Jani Lane Found Dead
Jani Lane, the former singer with hair metal band Warrant, has been found dead. He was 47. Lane's body was found yesterday (August 11) in a Comfort Inn motel room in the Woodland Hills area of California, near Los Angeles. No cause of death has yet been established. He fronted the band until 2004 then appeared on the US reality show "Celebrity Fit Club", rejoining the band in 2008 but leaving again only months later. Warrant's best known hit with Lane on board was 1990's "Cherry Pie" which shot to notoriety, not least because of its saucy video. Since leaving Warrant, Lane had been arrested twice for drink driving and had also spent time in jail, reports Billboard. Lane was born in Ohio on February 1, 1964 as John Kennedy Oswald. He changed his name in 1983 before moving to Los Angeles to start a band. He was married three times and is survived by a wife and four children. Thanks for the report to NME.com.
