Jani will be missed by all. Very unexpected and tragic news of his untimely death. Jani just wrote the updated bio (himself) and had been recording lots of new music. God bless him.
Do make sure that you go and check out his updated bio. It’s the most personal thing I’ve ever read on any artists webpage.
Quite a few of his fellow musicians have made posts/tweets with their condolences.
Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, who wrote, “I just heard the sad news about Janie Lane. So hard to swallow when people have kids. RIP.”
Poison singer Bret Michaels, said, “We’d like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Jani Lane regarding their loss. Respectfully, Bret and all at MEGI.”
Former MTV VJ Martha Quinn writing, “Super sad news. Janie Lane, dead at 47 … #RIP Jani Lane.”
Slash, Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, former Guns N’ Roses member Steven Adler, Ratt singer Stephen Pearcy and wrestler/rocker Chris Jericho also have made comments as well.
Michael Sweet of Stryper has made several tweets:
I’m sure there’s going to be quite a few memorial guest books floating around but here’s one I’ve found so far…http://www.legacy.com/memorial-sites/music/. You can also go to Jani’s Facebook page and give your condolences there, as well.
Again, we will continue giving you all the news as we get it.
