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.”
Performers 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.
