Where was his girlfriend, "Zit TIts?"

He had much talent, but way more beer.

Wow    

Which means he was impaired and could have killed us or anyone we love. I don't know when this country is going to take this seriously and make people really pay for driving drunk. "Jani" is 45 years old and needs to 1.) Grow up and 2.) Stop being a selfish jerk.

He was on celebrity rehab a few years ago and he was a drunken hot mess. Do yourself a favor and just add him to your celebrity death pool asap!

----Could be just me, but it seems like they should be charged with attempted murder when they drink and operate a vehicle- any vehicle- cars, boats, etc. They know they could potentially kill somebody and they drive anyways.. Sounds like attempted murder to me...

Leave him alone, he probably wasn't too drunk or he would have called a cab. It was a parked car for pete's sake!

His mother should be shot for naming him Jani (Janey) I'd be drunk, too.

get it right    

I was in a hotel in Charlotte a couple of years back and he happened to get on the elevator with me. He was double fisting and had a drink at the bar while he was waiting for his two carry along companions. Celebrity Rehab or Celebrity Fit Club neither did him any good... he looked like a bloated fish with bad skin then, I'm sure he looks like a dead bloated fish now... ewww gross

I was madly in love with this guy when I was a teenager. I loved the 80's glam music. And to this day as far as I am concerned, Jani Lane wrote the best love songs. Anyways obviously he looks different today, but idolizing him as a kid I wish he would clean up and get his act together. I don't think he really ever planned for his future, when his band and that kind of music died out.. He should have socked his money away. It looks like he didn't because he can't even make bail. I hope that getting arrested will make him sober up. BTW this man has two teenage daughters. He should really put himself in the shoes of being a dad and worry about his kids every time they get in a car, they too can be taken out by a drunk driver. No excuse for any of it and I hope that he cleans up and I am glad no one got hurt.

I don't think it was Celebrity Rehab, it was Celebrity Fit Club.
