Jani Lane, the former lead singer of the metal rock band Warrant, has died in Los Angeles. He was 47.
Officer Sara Faden says Lane's body was found Thursday in a Woodland Hills hotel. She had no immediate information on the cause or circumstances of his death.
He joined Warrant in 1984 and wrote such hits as "Heaven," ''Down Boys" and "Cherry Pie."
He left behind two daughters. This is one of those cases where you could see it coming. Jani just could never get quite right and was always slipping. He kept trying until the end, but it just was not meant to be.
