Like a lot of heavy metal snobs, I took my share of jabs at Warrant for being too “fluffy.” I do, however, admit to liking some of their songs and I always appreciated Jani Lane’s party-guy personality. Although I never met him, he seemed like a cool guy. Like his music or not, Jani is still somebody’s son, father, friend and loved one, so show some respect. He made a lot of people happy with the genre he helped define and now he’s gone too soon.
RIP, Jani and thanks for living our dream.
