Jani Lane - Dead at 47

Wow, only 47. I guess that's old in the world of Rock n Roll. (Unless you're the Rolling Stones).

Sad, very sad.

Although Warrant was not one of my favorite badns of that era/ genre I was a fan. I have seen them in concert 3 or 4 times and they certainly had an impact on the music of that time.

RIP Jani Lane.

47 is the new 27.
How wrong is it that I chucked just a little bit when I read that?

That said, I always kind of liked some of Warrants tunes---secretly, that is. They weren't as cool as GNR or even Skid Row. And certainly they were laughable once grunge-rock came along. (I wouldn't have been caught listening to their music for many years due to this.) But at least they were better than Winger. And I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for "Down Boys", "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and, heck, even the acoustic version of "I Saw Red', because honestly who doesn't enjoy a good power ballad? May your soul be at peace, Jani Lane.
