The Los Angeles County coroner’s office announced Wednesday that ex-Warrant singer Jani Lane died as a result of “acute ethanol intoxication,” otherwise known as alcohol poisoning.
They were among the bands that ruled the Los Angeles hair-metal scene in the 1980s. And on Aug. 29, they’ll join forces on the legendary Sunset Strip to honor one of their own.
Quiet Riot, Great White, LA Guns, Enuff Z’Nuff and Slammin’ Gladys are the featured acts for the free, all-ages tribute concert in memory of late Warrant singer Jani Lane at the Key Club in West Hollywood.
Jani Lane, who once fronted the 1980s rock band Warrant and wrote its biggest hit, ‘Cherry Pie,’ was found dead at a hotel in Woodland Hills, California on Thursday night.
No cause of death is known at this time, but Lane had a history of alcohol problems. He was arrested for DUI in 2009 and 2010 — the latter earned him 120 days in jail and a three-year suspension of his driver’s license.
