Warrant was a little before my time & I was never really into the glam rock scene. However, I do remember this song. I used to see it on commercials for a compilation album…the song would play near the chorus. I saw the video a few years ago through Comcast on Demand. I had never seen the band before and couldn’t believe the lead singer’s eyes. Sparkling bright blue.
Heaven was released in 1989 from the album Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. It reached #1 in Rolling Stone, #2 in Billboard’s Hot 100, and #3 in Mainstream Rock Tracks. It was written by lead singer, Jani Lane.
Unfortunately, on August 11th Jani passed away at the age of 47. The cause of death has not been released and it’s so sad to see another person gone, especially at a young age. 2011 has been a tough year and it’s definitely hit the music scene…Mike Starr, Amy Winehouse, Dan Peek, and now Jani Lane.
Rest in Peace, Jani. Heaven isn’t too far away…
