    I guess because I actually met the guy this caught my eye. When I owned a bar in Atlanta, the band Warrant stumbled in very very drunk. It was late and I told them I couldn't serve them but the singer convinced me they were not going to cause trouble. Well, I let them have a few before the bass player started acting up..and I had to give them the boot. Jani Lane, was a pretty nice fellow and handled the situation well. It's sad he died so young.

    And yes..his smoking wife was there as well.:lol:

    Sad, he was a cog in the hair metal machine. The whole band wanted out to do thier own music.

    Cherry Pie made him suicidal and ended the bands career.

    Ever hear thier song; Uncle Toms Cabin?
    It was going to be the lead off song instead of Cherry Pie and would have sent the band on a very different direction.

    I wasn't a fan. I knew the popular songs but not much more.

    I just remember this fellow being a pretty good egg that night.
