    About the name debate....when Warrant was at the hotel that I worked at they called him Janie...and I asked them how he pronounced it and that is what I was told too.....

    You still have all of me.

    i am watching it right now.

    i think jani seemed to be in pretty good shape.

    The grossest thing to me about seeing Taime Downe now is that you just know there are probably still skanky women lining up to get with him. He looks like he needs some penicillin.

    Depends on the person and their tollerance level. I don't drink so I'd probably be gone after like 3 beers!

    Come on girl - you know Sweet looked hot - he is pushin' 50!!! LOL!!

    I thought Jani looked kinda good - better than he did on Celebrity Rehab for sure. I never thought of him as "hot", but he seemed to be able to hold a good conversation. Ya jus' never know...

    Great video, good guitar work. Say what you will about the hair bands, they knew how to play.

    I saw Jani Lane on That Metal Show yesterday. It was taped not long before Jani's death. He didn't look particularly good (very gaunt). RIP.

    He also is one of the very few rockers from that era that looks better now than he ever has.
    Don't forget Reb Beach, Winger's guitarist. Pretty good shredder IMO.

    I'm with you. The spandex and spiked hair got to be a little much, but the hair bands knew how to play their instruments. Enter grunge where, with notable exceptions, every band member stood glued to the stage wearing the same flannel shirts. Musicianship and showmanship became uncool thus they never had to learn more than three chords. The notion that grunge "rescued" us from the 80's hair bands is absurd.

    I was bummed when Jani died. He and his family lived in Ohio for a few years near where I worked, and I would see one or all of them on a weekly basis. The last time I talked to him was about 2 years ago. I stumbled on his Myspace page and sent him a message wondering if he remembered me. He seemed very happy when he wrote me back, telling me how he and his daughter were doing out in Cali.

    Fads change, trends change, music changes. You didnt.

    Each generation likes what the previous one didnt.

    For me I grew up with this hair metal stuff. Dudes with make up , long hair , assless chaps and spandex was the 80s generation. Many of thoes bands did indeed suck but many were great talents. Grunge wiped out the ripping guitar solos and replaced the hair bands with flannel clad angry kids and college students with guitars.

    I read another internet forum that is aimed at Gays. It's lots of people with supposed gossip and lots of rude bitching, but funny. Anyhow, one day somebody posted they just had sex with Jani Lane. Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's made up unless he was really good at hiding his conquests. Anyhow, after he died, people started freaking out and thinking they killed him. LOL

    Posters were worried that he somehow came across this thread during a google search and decided to end it all. Oi Vey.

    Thanks for the link. I read the entire thread...all 20 some pages. I tend to believe OP and concur that perhaps news of his man-on-man encounter was enough to make him go on a final bender. Maybe he was afraid that he'd be outed? Cr

    i don't believe a word of it. whoever the poster was started out by implying that he was in a luxury home. jani was living in shit hotels.

    not that there there would be anything wrong with whatever he was into. it just reads like a silly attention troll.

    I haven't read the article, but it sounds good, so I'll look it over. I have always gotten a gay vibe from him. He has a little bit of the gay face. I am giving no creedance to the poster at that forum, just sayin this doesn't shock me at all. Plus, even if he wasn't gay, if he was using he probably hooked up with a few dudes from time to time. Happens.

    I just read the entire thread (obviously have too much time on my hands) and I don't know what to believe. The OP sounded believable in the beginning but then ended up recanting when word got out on other forums. I kinda think it happened simply because who would pick Jani Lane of all people? Maybe in 1989 but 2011?

    I like his original name. No wonder he changed his middle name though. I finally saw his TMS episode from last year, and thought he looked pretty damn good for his age and all the rest of the shit. He claimed he was healthier, guess something happened and he started drinking again. Seems odd someone would make it to that age, then die from alcohol poisoning. Maybe it's because I would associate something like that with a person who is MUCH younger, and doesn't know any better, like a teenager or young adult... Or, someone who had quit, then started again, and overdid it.

    I think about Jani Lane quite a bit... because I constantly listen to "Hair Nation" when I'm driving and they play a lot of Warrant. The whole thing just makes me sad. While some of their songs were hokey, many were actually quite good (and catchy) and he wasn't a half bad vocalist. I hope he is at peace.

    I met Jani Lane in a bar where he was doing a solo show. It was my 28th birthday, and he found out from the opening band (who I knew). During the set he took out his acoustic, sat on a stool and played "Sad Theresa" for me, because the other band told him it was one of my favorite Warrant tunes. After the show, he hung out and had a few drinks with us and we talked about music for awhile. He was a great guy, and a very underrated talent.

    yeah i read that thread too! 'i hope he doesn't kill himself', 'narcissists commit suicide when they are revealed'. some pretty freaky stuff, even if it didn't really happen, and i have no idea if it did.

    That is really a cool story... I wasn't a huge Warrant fan, but just from what I have read about him I think you are right - her was underrated and never got over the "hair band cherry pie" stigma... =(

    I'm not saying it's not made up, but..... You can bet your last dollar if any sane person was looking for attention, they wouldn't say they'd slept with Jani Lane to get it. :shutters:


    Maybe in 1990 and if you liked cherub faced rockers with jacked teeth, but I'm thinking that's about it. LOL If it was attention they were after, Kip Winger would obviously be the better choice.

    Yes, yes, I can see that as well. Mick Mars. Egad. If there's really an Angel of Death it looks like Mick Mars.

    Housekeeping didnt want to touch him.

    http://www.themortonreport.com/enter...ch-the-body-1/

    Operator: Okay. So what’s the problem? Tell me exactly what happened.
    Receptionist: Okay. The housekeeping, when they were about to clean the room, they knocked the room door three times and he didn’t open the door. They finally opened it and one of the housekeeping checked they guy, like, ‘Maybe he’d dead,’ because, his eyes…
    Operator: Okay. Do you know about how old, approximately what age the patient is?
    Receptionist: Maybe like 50.
    Operator: Male or female?
    Receptionist: Male.
    Operator: So do you know if they’re conscious? You don’t know?
    Receptionist: No. Because when we opened the door they didn’t go closer.
    Operator: So you guys don’t know what’s going on there?
    Receptionist: No, because --
    Operator: You have a defibrillator?
    Receptionist: Uh…
    Operator: A shock box for the heart. Do you guys have one?
    Receptionist: No.
    Operator: Okay. Paramedics are on the way, okay? Just stay on the line, I’ll tell you exactly what to do next. Does anybody there know CPR or first aid?
    Receptionist: I - no…
    Operator: Is there any way you can transfer me to the room? Is there anyone there that’s willing to go into the room and see if we can maybe do CPR? Or do you think the patent has already passed away?
    Receptionist: I think passed away, because when they checked the guy, like, his eyes were open and his mouth, he wasn’t breathing.
    Operator: Was there an odour? Was he stiff?
    Receptionist: The guy? The room? Odor?
    Operator: Was there an odor? Did it smell?
    Receptionist: No. They didn’t really, like, go inside, so housekeeping think he’s dead.
    Operator: Okay, well, tell you what ma’am, if somebody is willing to go there and go check it out, then give us a call, okay? We’re on our way. You don’t have to - but if this person needs help, if we need to do CPR, it would be nice to at least know if we could help him. If not, if he’s passed away, there’s nothing else we can do.
    Receptionist: So you want us to go in the room and -
    Operator: Well, it’s up to you ma’am. Are you, is someone willing to go in the room, or…?

    That's kind of sad. Why call 911 if you're not going to do anything? Draw straws or something, but don't just leave the operator hanging!

    Sorry. I had to delete my last post because I had to re upload the video. Here's a small video I did in the room. I have another long video with the 911 call behind it but someone asked me to take it down... Do you guys think I should put the long one back up? I really want to put it up but I don't want people getting all pissed at me for being the first person to have gone in there and filmed. What do you guys think?

    Here's the small one...
