The body of the musician, 47, was discovered at the Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills. No official cause of death has been released.
Lane's rock peers were stunned by the tragic news, and have taken to their Twitter.com pages to express their grief over his passing.
Bret Michaels tells fans, "We'd like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Jani Lane regarding their loss."
Sixx states, "I just heard the sad news about Janie (sic) Lane. So hard to swallow when people have kids. Rip", while Adler adds, "Jani Lane, you were a great talent. The world will miss you. R.I.P. my brother."
In a post on his page on the microblogging site, Slash writes, "Just heard about Jani Lane. What a shame. Rip man."
Lane, who fronted the Cherry Pie hitmakers between 1986 and 2004 and briefly reunited with the group in 2008, was married three times and is survived by a wife and four children.
