Jani Lane - Jani Lane Death Stuns Bret Michaels And Co

Jani Lane, the American rocker and former Warrant frontman, has been found dead at the Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles. Lane, who had a history of alcohol-related arrests, was found on Thursday evening (11st August 2011) but a cause of death is yet to be released, reports Tmz.com.
The death has stunned friends of the singer, including Poison singer Bret Michaels, who tweeted, "We'd like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Jani Lane regarding their loss. Respectfully, Bret and all at Megi". Professional wrestler Chris Jericho paid tribute to the "underrated" Lane, saying, "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". The singer had often found himself in trouble with the authorities, including one incident in 2009 when he reportedly crashed into a parked car. A year later, he was given a 120 day jail sentence for a similar incident.
Jani Lane wrote and sang most of Warrant's biggest hits, including the 1989 power ballad 'Heaven' - the band's most commercially successful single. The song reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
