Sad news coming out of L.A. tonight... TMZ reports that Ex-Warrant singer Jani Lane was found dead at a Comfort Inn in Woodland Hills California.

There's been no official word yet on what may have been the cause of Death, but according to TMZ, half a bottle of Vodka, and prescription medications were found in the hotel room.  Jani had a very public history with alcohol abuse. He was sentenced to jail time last year for his second DUI in two years.

He was 47 years old, and leaves behind his wife Kimberly and four children, Taylar, Brittany, Madison, and Ryan.

On July 23, Lane took part in a taping of an upcoming episode of the "That Metal Show" with Michael Sweet from Stryper and Taime Downe of Faster Pussycat. The program featuring Lane is scheduled to air  October 1 on VH1 Classic...

In a 2010 interview, when asked if his treatment involved going to a rehab, Lane replied,

I have gone to rehabilitation, absolutely. I know some people who want to be quiet about that kind of stuff, but I am not the kind of person who pride is going to win out over saying, 'Hey, I'm honestly getting this in check and fixing this.' It is a very important thing to me. I mean, this just doesn't affect me like it used to. It affects everything in my life, including the people I love. To be honest, I get tired of giving ammo to the people who don't wish me well.

R.I.P Jani Lane...

Jani is credited with writing, what has to be Warrants most famous song, "Cherry Pie"...
