Dude, R.I.P. Jani Lane

Half an hour ago, one of my kids was asking me who Frankie Valli was, noting that he would be appearing at the state line casino in a few weeks.  I was explaining that he was a musician from my mother's era, but that he had a cameo in the movie Grease, which might explain why he looked somewhat familiar to the kids.  I jokingly said that I wasn't aware that Valli was still alive, much less touring.

Now I read that Jani Lane, lead singer of hairband Warrant, has died.  I feel old.  And bummed.  I loved this song, back in the Spandex day...

Warrant has been touring this summer, but don't know if he was touring with them or not.
