Warrant posted the following note on their blog tonight:
Warrant was founded on the notion that any press is good press, and for that, we would like to thank AOL, Perez Hilton andTMZ for their continued front page cover stories regarding Jani Lane. When you run your next update, please note that he is NOT the singer in Warrant. With the exception of a failed 11 show reunion in 2008, he has not been affiliated with Warrant in over 7 years.
To all of the promoters and ticket holders for our upcoming shows, please know that Robert Mason “the” lead singer of Warrant, along with original band members Joey Allen, Jerry Dixon, Steven Sweet and Erik Turner, will not be in jail and are ready to rock and roll as scheduled. If you (the press) are going to run these stories, please spell our names correctly and get the facts straight. Also, please mention our web site, warrantrocks.com, as we can always use some extra web traffic. Thanks for the free support.
P.S. We do wish Lane all the best in his on going efforts.
HRH Note: The TMZ Report is below!
TMZ has learned former Warrant singer Jani Lane just plead no contest to DUI stemming from his most recent arrest back in May — and has been ordered to serve 120 days in jail. As we first reported, the ’80s rocker — who was also busted for DUI in 2009 — was arrested in Woodland Hills, CA on May 9 after crashing into a parked car … and then blowing twice the legal limit during a breathalyzer test.
Besides the jail time — Lane will lose his license for three years and will have to complete a 30-month alcohol education program.
We’re told Jani is scheduled to surrender on July 27.
