It was the 69th episode of 'That Metal Show' and it was teeming with '80s legends like the late Jani Lane, Faster Pussycat's Taime Downe and Stryper's Michael Sweet. In normal circumstances, these guests, who celebrated and recalled the Sunset Strip, would remind fans and viewers of the '80s glam rock heyday, but given Lane's untimely passing on Aug. 11, it was a bittersweet and unintentional farewell to the former Warrant singer.
More details surrounding the investigation into the death of Warrant singer Jani Lane have been made available in the past day or so. First, an autopsy performed on the singer, 47, was inconclusive, according to the L.A. Times. It did not reveal the cause of death and the results of the toxicology report won't be returned for at least a month-and-a-half, if not longer.
After news of the tragic death of former Warrant singer broke late Thursday, fellow rockers such as ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, Motley Crue/Sixx: A.M. bassist Nikki Sixx and others took to their Twitter accounts to mourn his loss.
Jani Lane, who shot to fame in the '80s as the singer of the rock band Warrant, was found dead at a hotel in Los Angeles on Thursday night. TMZ reports that Lane's body was discovered at a Comfort Inn hotel located in Woodland Hills, CA, which is just outside of Los Angeles. As of now, the official cause of death has not been released by authorities.
