Warrant’s lead singer dies: The man who belted out the lyrics “heaven isn’t too far away” will now get to find out for himself. (That seems more fitting than a “Cherry Pie” reference, if you ask us.) Jani Lane, the lead singer and lyricist of the band Warrant during their heyday — he’s the blonde dude in the center — was found dead in his apartment last night. He was 47. The cause of death is as yet unknown.
