Most people knew him by his stage name, Jani Lane, a hold over from his stint as the lead singer of the Southern California band, "Plain Jane".
I still listen to Hair Metal, or Glam Metal if you will, even though I enjoy some of the music the kids are listening to these days. Forever The Sickest Kids do a really great live show.
But, I guess somewhere along the line we begin, as we age, to leave pieces of ourselves in years past.
Perhaps, like Hansel and Gretal, those pieces we dropped along the way help us find our way home.
Hope you found Heaven, Jani.
