I want to make a joke about his death using the term cherry pie but I'm not sure I need an express ticket to hell.

This has saddened me a lot, such a shame he couldn't battle his demons. A real talent, wrote some wonderful songs. He'll be missed. RIP

Still a big fan of Uncle Tom's Cabin as well as the Dog Eat Dog album, so it's disappointing news for me Sympathies for his family & friends.

I do agree with the statement of too many glam bands, but I'd rather see someone from Cinderella go down before Jani Lane...I mean yea the bands existence pretty much thrived on "Cherry Pie", but their other music was far more tolerable than most glam bands music imo.

why someone from Cinderella? They are one of the few great glam bands.

Anyway... RIP Jani Lane.

Cinderella's music is vastly superior to anything Warrant ever did another musically very proficient glam band was Great White. Those two are the only glam bands I could tolerate back in the day together with Skid Row and Guns and Roses

Great White was good, but I guess Cinderella never caught my fancy. Skid Row was great too.

Either you're joking or incredibly talented at avoiding TV-based memes.

If you aren't joking, it's David Caruso. He's a hacktor (hack actor). He's known basically for delivering corny lines in a cheap, raspy voice and removing his sunglasses before putting them back on while he delivers said corny line.

I'm not joking, I seldom watch T.V, and when I do, it's a re-run of an early Spongebob Squarepants episode, the new South Park, or cable news.
