Jani Lane Arrested For DUI


I don't watch Celebrity Fit Club that often, but the season Jani Lane, the former lead singer of Warrant was on the show was one of the seasons I was hooked. I remember seeing the guy struggle so much with not only his weight, but his alcohol problem and was really pulling for the guy. Unlike Daniel Baldwin who came on the show and was a complete menace, I actually thought Jani was really trying to get better and to get his life back on track. I think at one point during the show he had a blackout and everyone thought he had killed himself.

Last night he was involved in a car accident and was arrested for suspicion of DUI. Hopefully this is just a slip. I'm not excusing the guy for drinking and driving because there is no excuse at all for that. I am hoping though that this was just a slip and that maybe getting arrested for DUI will bring into focus the fact he needs some help and that he needs to be a role model for his two daughters.

I feel so sorry for him. Not excusing the DUI - that is just stupid and he's lucky he didn't kill someone or himself. But when you see interviews with him, especially when they talk about Cherry Pie, and he's almost in tears... "That song is my legacy. I'm the Cherry Pie guy. I could kill myself for writing that song".
The song is so cheesy but the rest of that album was actually alright. They had to put Cherry Pie on there because the record company needed a hit.And it's all he's remembered for. I'm rooting for Jani. I hope he cleans up and gets to have a glorious comeback.

I actually forgot about Warrant, but then I thought of 'Cherry Pie' and instantly went back to 1990. Cheesy, but undoubtedly brings on the nostalgia. I looked him up and I have to say that there is a great sense of weirdness in looking at him now, compared to then. Aging is not for the squeamish.

you know, we live in a time where everyone is aware of the dangers of drinking and driving. i don't get why people STILL insist on poor judgement. for alcoholics, i get it...that must be a huge demon to battle, but damn. just damn.

He went seriously downhill after his time in the spotlight~ lots o drugs, drinking and fame gone missing can do that to a person....

Sorry Jani.

BTW he was married and had kids with Bobbi Brown~ the "Pamela Anderson" wannabe in the Cherry Pie vid~ now she has nothing to do with him and has nothing nice at all to say about him either...

Ok - I'm going to admit that I am watching I'm a Celebrity, etc. And the person I loved was Daniel Baldwin. He was the most earthy, real guy in the joint. The fact that he hates Janice didn't hurt, either ;)
