What In The Hell Happened To Warrant?
March 27, 2009

Let me take you back to a special day. Montreal, Canada - late June. A beautiful afternoon with two amazing ladies. (Heavy Metal Mamma and Morgan) Vince and myself are pounding back some very cold yet expensive drinks. The next thing that happens blows me away. Out on stage walks Warrant. The ORIGINAL Warrant. That's not the shocking part because we knew they were on the bill and together for the first time in 14 years. The amazing part was they were good - I mean damn good. Jani was in fine form, he even told us to fu*k off when we started cheering for a ballad. I mean if you can make me cheer for a horrendous song like Heaven then you must be creating a good vibe.
So after the set Vince and I are talking about how much money these guys are going to make with this line-up and set list when all of a sudden something terrible happens. I swear to god that our plane hadn't even touched down back home before Warrant threw out the voice of Warrant.

What in the hell happened. Apparently Jani is useless drunk bastard and the guys from Warrant don't want to make any money. Sorry folks but I stand by the fact that if the "voice" isn't there you don't have the band. Ask Motley Crue about the John Corabi incident.

I agree that Jani has some horrible episodes that you can view on YouTube, but lets face the facts, Warrant isn't Warrant with out Jani. They have Robert Mason from Lynch Mob on vocals but it just sounds like Robert Mason doing Warrant cover songs.

So I say this to Warrant and Jani - get your heads out of your collective asses and give us fans what we want to hear.


Show me your horns,
