ID:	3011The music has stopped for Warrant's Jani Lane.

    On Thursday, the heavy metal singer was found dead in his room at a Comfort Inn in Woodland Hills, Calif., the Associated Press confirms. Police officers told the AP that the cause and circumstances of the rocker's death are not yet known.

    Lane (real name: John Kennedy Oswald) is survived by four children, Taylar, Brittany, Madison and Ryan, from two previous marriages. (Taylar's mother is model Bobbie Brown, his first wife, who starred in Warrant's classic "Cherry Pie" video.) According to his Twitter account, his third wife is named Kimberly.

    Lane joined hair metal band Warrant in 1984 and wrote the group biggest hits, including "Heaven," "Down Boys" and "Cherry Pie."

    He quit and returned to the band numerous times -- finally leaving for good in 2008. In 2005, the then-overweight singer appeared on season 2 of Celebrity Fit Club. Last summer, he toured with the band Great White, filling in for lead singer Jack Russell.

    The blond crooner had a history of struggles with alcohol; just last year, he was ordered to serve 120 days in jail following his second DUI arrest.

    I'll be shocked if this wasnt alcohol or drug related. From I have heard and know, Lane has been a mess for a long time. not quite to the extent of some since he was mroe alcohol based than drugs, but pretty bad.

    Tune from a band he fronted in the early 200's called "Saints of the Underground" with Ratt drummer Bobbi Blotzer and Pittsburgh native , later Ratt Bassist Robbie Crane and Kerri Kelli whose played on a lot of stuff as replacement guitarist..

    They said they found pills and a half bottle of vodka. If you are going to be a rockstar and die at least pick an original way to go. I wanted to be eaten by a shark or something.

    A friend of mine posted this on Facebook. Thought I would share it.


    Jani Lane: His Only Real Friend... That Killed Him in the End RIP


    People have been asking me about Jani Lane & I really don't know what to say. Picturing him by himself in a Comfort Inn in Woodland Hills with a bottle of vodka & a bottle of pills is so typical of what a rock musicians life actually is. It is a life marked by extremes. Extreme attention from people you don't know, while all the work & travel takes you away from those you actually do know. Playing to thousands of people & then going back to your hotel room & shutting the door. When the door shuts... the quiet is the exact opposite of the volume of the concert. The solitude of the empty hotel room becomes the diametric parallel of the adulation of strangers. For some, the bottle of vodka or whatever becomes a friend that is always there for you while others come & go. Yes I have felt these emotions myself. If you see me going head over heels over a girl, it's because all I have ever wanted is to have a girl to love & share my life with, & for the one I love to be with me wherever I'm at, travel with me to distant locales & stay in nice kick *** hotel suites & have fun & sing & dance & see the world. But so far this is a fantasy. Just like Jani, I spend most of my time alone in a hotel room dreaming of a girl I love who is somewhere else. I bet Jani Lane felt exactly what I feel. How could he not? I remember decades ago being invited to Janis house for a barbeque, which we went to. But Jani didn't show up. So I spent the afternoon with Janis dad cooking burgers & steaks & having a wonderful day with his family. My condolences to his family & especially Janis children who now only have memories of their dad to hold on to. That is truly heartbreaking. Let this be yet another lesson to tell someone some kind words sometimes... before it's too late... while they are still alive. I can guarantee Jani Lane would not have anticipated everyone coming out of the woodwork extolling the life & times of Jani Lane. Which is why he probably died alone. In a hotel room. With his only real friend...that killed him in the end.

    Wow, that puts a different perspective on it from someone who knows what his life was like. Thanks for sharing that.
