Loved Warrant in the day. I Saw Red is one of the most heartbreaking ballads ever written.

Such a shame! Jani was my 2nd favorite singer in the early 90's. He was a great singer and entertainer. I met him a couple of times and he was really nice too. He'll be missed.
Life is short. Be sure to spend as much time as possible on the internet arguing about politics and entertainment.

Unfortunately he released his best record too late, at the peak of Grunge.

Had Jon written this song, it'd be a hit:

Never took the time to get into Warrant, but I own the greatest hits album.

Really sad though.

If I die tomorrow, have I said all I can say?

Jani Lane was such an underrated songwriter and vocalist. I think it is sad that he will forever be known as "The Cherry Pie Guy" and that will be largely known as his legacy to the music world. The reality is, this dude wrote some phenomenal tunes across his career. Ultraphobic, in my opinion, was one of the best albums of the 90's - Belly To Belly and Dog Eat Dog were killer, too. I am friggin' shattered.
Interesting tidbit - I remember reading a couple of times that the song "I Saw Red" was apparently based on Jani Lane walking in on his then partner, Bekka Bramlett, in bed with Mr Richie Sambora...
RIP Jani.
