Sad to hear about the passing of Jani Lane. Jani was a good guy and one of the best songwriters in the late 80s Dog Eat Dog-very underrated

To a guy who not only represented the youth of my generation but was sadly to say, "a star burning brightly", that just could not bless us with his presence completely. You will be missed Jani
