Warrant Issues Statement Regarding Jani Lane's DUI

Warrant has issued the following statement regarding Jani Lane's recently reported D.U.I. incident:

"Jani Lane, who was officially dismissed from the band Warrant in 2008, is in no way affiliated with Warrant at present. It is to be known that Jani Lane's actions, should not be misrepresented as those of the lead singer of Warrant. Warrant whose line-up consists of Jerry Dixon, Joey Allen, Erik Turner, Steven Sweet and Robert Mason express concern for the possible dangers that Mr. Lane's actions pose. Warrant, represented by the William Morris Agency, are embarking on new ventures, including touring and recording. Warrant wish to avoid any negative opinions and publicity that wrongful association to Mr. Lane might cause resulting from his poor judgement."

Well it's good to know they care about the well being of others and are not all concerned with what others think of them.

Atually, I've seen them (by default with Alice Cooper) with the new guy and he smokes Jani. He's WAY more talented vocally and he's not drunk off his a$$ stumbling around the stage like a drunken idiot. He's actually a professional musician. I'd pay to see him again, but not Jani.

This new singer Robert Mason is indeed quite the vocalist.. Check him out on the second and newest Lynch Mob albums... along with the band Cry of Love's second album Diamonds and Debris.!

I caught Warrant a couple summers ago, at a local bar... Jaime St James from the band Black n Blue was singing... and even he kicked Jani Lane's a$$ vocally..!! This new guy Robert Mason makes those two both sound like shlt.!!

AC/DC comes to mind immediately. AIC as well. Although it remains to be seen how well William will be received by AIC fans. Then theres KSE. It's certainly not unheard of.
