Jani Lane, the former lead singer of the metal rock band Warrant, has died in Los Angeles. He was 47.

Officer Sara Faden says Lane's body was found Thursday in a Woodland Hills hotel. She had no immediate information on the cause or circumstances of his death..

With his long blond hair and tight leather outfits, Lane embodied the excess of 1980s "hair metal" rock bands. He joined Warrant in 1984 and wrote such hits as "Heaven," "Down Boys" and "Cherry Pie.".

He had an on-and-off relationship with the band, leaving it in 1992 before returning and quitting again several times..

In recent years, he appeared in VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club" and made news for a drunken driving arrest..

He is survived by two daughters from two previous marriages..

I had the opportunity to meet Jani Lane twice.... I'd won passes to meet the band before the concert during warm up and sound check when they came to Knoxville with Poison... it was very fun!!!

Then I met them another time when a friends band opened for them at a small theater in Knoxville... that was a great show!!!

When I still had cable I would see him commenting from time to time on Metal Mania and That Metal Show. He did not even look like the same person. I know people age but I thought he was much older than in his 40s. That is the problem with sex, drugs and rock and roll lifestyle, it can kill you.

Pink told me about this this morning on messenger. In a way, it's hard to believe, but, then again, he was from the "decade of decadence" and it apparently caught up to him.

It's still sad though.

RIP Jani Lane.
