Jani Lane remembered by rocker friends at Key Club Tribute

August 31st, 2011

Jani Lane Legends

The Los Angeles rock community celebrated the late Jani Lane’s life Monday, August 29th in a memorial tribute at the Key Club. That club used to be Gazzarri’s, the very place where Lane’s band Warrant first rose to prominence on the Sunset Strip before eventually selling millions of records thanks to hit classic hit singles like “Cherry Pie” and “Heaven.”

janilane-keyclubPerformers included Quiet Riot (who lost their own lead singer, Kevin Dubrow, 8 years ago), L.A. Guns, Great White (who Jani just fronted while singer Jack Russell recovered from surgery) and Enuff Z’Nuff. Other musicians jammed at the end of the evening, and Jani’s first wife, Bobbie Brown (of “Cherry Pie” video fame) also was in attendance, along with his brother Eric Oswald.

Check out some videos from the Tribute, below.

    Wow,I can not believe I am just finding out about Jani Lane.I feel very fortunate to have seen him perform even though it was only once.I remember that he had a lot of struggles in life and I always hoped that he would pull through even though I did not know him personally.I am very sorry for his family and friends for this incredible loss in the music world.R.I.P.

    Was at a small gig in 2001 at Harpos in Detroit, small crowd he did not care he did his show repected his fans; even borrowed a cigerette from someone. I remember him as a realy cool genuine guy, being a counselor it is a shame to lose him this way. RIP Jani hope Heaven is not to far away for you..
