Jani Lane, who once fronted the 1980s rock band Warrant and wrote its biggest hit, ‘Cherry Pie,’ was found dead at a hotel in Woodland Hills, California on Thursday night.

No cause of death is known at this time, but Lane had a history of alcohol problems. He was arrested for DUI in 2009 and 2010 — the latter earned him 120 days in jail and a three-year suspension of his driver’s license.

Lane was 47 years old.
