How Warrant's Jani Lane Ended Up at a Comfort Inn

When we heard the news that Warrant lead singer Jani Lane was found dead in a Comfort Inn of a possible drug overdose last week, we thought two things--one, How sad! We totally had a crush on him from the "Heaven" video. And two, how did he end up in the budget brand of Comfort Inn? True, Warrant wasn't necessarily aging well but you know, "Cherry Pie" was a big part of rock history. Shouldn't that have at least afforded him a place with room service?

Well, TMZ (who else?) has the answer to our question:

Lane had been kicked out of the Hilton Woodland Hills sometime in the last month -- after hotel employees noticed that he had torn his room apart.

We're told Jani was "not rude" about the situation -- and understood why he had to leave.
