Jani Lane, who was found dead in a hotel in Los Angeles on 11 August, was the former lead singer of the "hair metal" band Warrant.

With his long blond hair and tight leather outfits, Lane embodied the excess of the 1980s. He joined Warrant in 1984 and had an on-and-off relationship with the band. Warrant came to fame in 1990 with their album and video Cherry Pie. In recent years, he appeared in VH1's Celebrity Fit Club and spent 120 days in jail in 2010 for drink-driving.
