RIP Jani Lane, 47
Lead singer of hair metal band Warrant, one of the bands that defined the genre. And though they've been ragged on over the years, take a listen to "Heaven" again and you will be instantly transported back to 1989. Here's Jani sharing his thoughts on "Cherry Pie" - the other big Warrant hit:
"I don't think all music has to have any political significance or a deep religious meaning. You can have fun rock and roll. That's the roots of rock and roll. Chuck Berry wrote about cruising around in the car, in the back seat with a girl, so that's what 'Cherry Pie' was, and you can take it for what it's worth."
