One of my childhood friends said that she was going to grow up and marry Jani Lane of Warrant, so I’m sure she’s curled up in the WHY GOD WHY? position while clutching a poster of him and vowing to never let a piece of cherry pie touch her lips again. Because TMZ reports that Jani Lane (born name: John Kennedy Oswald) rode on a pair of hairsprayed hair wings to heaven last night at the age of 47.
The Los Angeles Police Department says that Jani was found dead in the room of a Comfort Inn in Woodland Hills, CA. No cause of death has been released yet.
Jani joined Warrant in 1986 and quit their asses in 1992 before coming back and quitting again several times over. Jani and Warrant went to their separate corners for good in 2008. Jani struggled with the booze bottle for years and was arrested for his second DUI last year.
Jani is survived by his two daughters (one with Bobbie Brown).
Rest in peace, Jani. Every stripper will be pouring their souls out on the pole tonight to this song:
