Jani Lane

Warrant to Honor Singer Tonight

At Live Concert

8/12/2011 10:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jani Lane Warrant Concert
Jani Lane's former band will pay tribute to the fallen singer at their concert tonight in North Dakota ... TMZ has learned.

Guitarist Erik Turner -- who co-founded the band -- tells us, "We will be making a tribute before we play the song 'Heaven' tonight."

He adds, "We never thought that when the song 'Heaven' was written we would be playing it someday in the memory of Jani's untimely death. This is a very sad day for rock and roll. One of the great things about music is that it lives on forever."

Lane penned the song "Heaven" back in 1989 -- and it's said to be the band's most commercially successful single.

Another junkie bites the dust. Well be sure to put up lots of shrines in his honor, give him a posthumous award, and make sure the sales of his music go up.

Lot of Hair bands in the 80's/90's that made it and Warrant was one of them. He did have his problems but he wasn't the only one. Met the band in Japan once and they were the nicest guys ever!!! All of them were. It's sad that he left 2 daughters behind. Why wouldn't the band make a tribute for him if they were playing tonight anyways!!

The Truth is....now Jani Lane will burn in Hell where he will be forced to listen to nothing but his pathetic, sappy, piece of **** song ironically titled 'Heaven' for all of eternity.
