So sad! I saw Warrant in Bakersfield in 1991, and it was one of the most fun concerts ever! I was in the second row (front row was empty and roped off) and Jani came down and stepped up on the seat right in front of me and sang for like 5 minutes. It was awesome!!

UGH! Another celebrity bite the dust because of prescriptions/illegal drugs and alcohol.

I don't know who this guy is, but I do hope he find peace in after life. My condolences to his family and friends.

That motel is right next to the 101 freeway at Winnetka offramp in Woodland Hills and a Denny's is on the same lot. Next door is another hotel called Extended Stay. Both of these hotels are popular with porn girls living in LA temporarily and also prostitutes freelancing and "touring" while posting internet ads on sites like humaniplex and backpage. He probably got a room to meet a girl and party a little. Innocent enough. He still had the rock and roll in his soul that's for sure.

You know it is bad enough that the people such as Jani Lane have to live in the public view and media at their heels all the time do you have to drag them through the mud?? I am sure his family is mourning their loss as most of us all would. It would just me nice for a chance that you let the dirt sweep under the rug and let the people who are feeling the loss at this time to well ... have a little peace ya know?? It is so sad when this happens and most of us in the real world have vices but airing the dirty laudry to everyone in the whole world seems like "immoral" Let him rest in peace for heavens sake!! RIP Jani you will be sorely missed and blessings and prayers to his family!!!!
