Fans are still reeling from the surprise, unfortunate death of former Warrant lead singer Jani Lane. The musician was found unresponsive in a Woodland Hills, California Comfort Inn yesterday evening, and by the time the police arrived, he was dead. At first, authorities were mum on the details surrounding Lane's passing, but earlier today, sources revealed prescription pills and a partially consumed vodka bottle were found in the hotel room.

According to TMZ, the death is being looked as a possible accidental overdose. An autopsy is scheduled for later this afternoon in an attempt to figure out what exactly happened. If it does prove to be an overdose, the coroner's report will need to wait on toxicology results which could take upwards of a month.

Jani Lane's long strange trip started in Ohio. By the age of eleven, he was playing drums at local clubs and handling the percussion duties in several bands. Singing lessons soon followed, and Lane moved out to Los Angeles in the mid-1980s to make his mark. His group Plain Jane became a regular on the burgeoning club scene before he and bandmate Steven Sweet left to join Warrant. Six top forty singles followed spread across two multi-platinum albums before infighting and a shift in popular music caused numerous break-ups and reunions over the years.

Pop Blend would like to send out its thoughts to Lane's family, as well as all those who loved Warrant's music. Jani Lane might have been a bit cartoonish and over-the-top, but it's impossible to deny he had a perfect voice for 80s glam metal. Take a listen to Warrant's “Cherry Pie” below…
