I was just rewatching that VH1 'Heavy: the Story of Metal' special the other day. It's rather sad how many musicians who appeared in it have died since then.RIP, Jani Lane.
Lane just had very unfortunate timing.Ten years earlier, and his music would have been appreciated just for what it was without having to do the hairspray/makeup thing.Lane just proves that once you sell yourself out, no matter how much you get it usually isn't enough to buy yourself back with.RIP.
According to Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, "GLAM means 'Gay LA Music'". Methinks Robin's needle/HIV story may only be a cover. On a more serious note, the autopsy showed that cause of Lane's over-consumption of Cherry Pie. Interestingly enough, my Google search for "Jani Lane dead" returned this result:http://hamptonroads.com/2011/08/warrants-jani-lane-dies-bert-ernie-officially-not-gay. I guess Bert and Ernie dig Megadeth.
Mustaine is right. Warrant weren't even remotely "metal"I have seen at least 3 headlines calling them metal. They were late glam, but mostly just arena-rock hair band. Glam is really bowie, ny dolls, etc.
thanks Chez. I always loved Uncle Tom's Cabin and hated Cherry Pie, so I'm good.
