The Popdust Files: jani lane, RIP, warrant

Jani Lane, the former lead singer of ’80s glam band Warrant, was found dead on Thursday, the Los Angeles Times reports. The 47-year-old’s body was found at a Woodlands Hill, Calif. Comfort Inn near Los Angeles. No official cause of death has been determined at this time, and the case has since been turned over to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.

As Warrant frontman, Lane was responsible for many of the band’s hits, writing “Down Boys,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and their most notable chartopper, “Heaven.” He first left the band in 1992 before subsequently rejoining and leaving multiple times. After his departure in 2004, Lane resurfaced on the Vh1 reality series Celebrity Fit Club a year later. For Lane, the past few years were not without legal troubles. Police note that the singer received two DUI charges, one of which required jail time.
