Jay Cooper of Slither Productions conducted an interview with guitarist Joey Allen of Californian hard rockers WARRANT earlier in the year. The chat is now available for streaming at this location.WARRANT released a statement last month regarding the reports that the band's former lead singer, Jani Lane, was arrested on June 17 in Los Angeles for a misdemeanor DUI traffic accident. The statement read as follows: "Jani Lane, who was officially dismissed from the band WARRANT in 2008, is in no way affiliated with WARRANT at present. It is to be known that Jani Lane's actions should not be misrepresented as those of the lead singer of WARRANT. WARRANT, whose lineup consists of Jerry Dixon, Joey Allen, Erik Turner, Steven Sweet and Robert Mason, express concern for the possible dangers that Mr. Lane's actions pose. WARRANT, represented by the William Morris Agency, are embarking on new ventures, including touring and recording. WARRANT wish to avoid any negative opinions and publicity that wrongful association to Mr. Lane might cause resulting from his poor judgment."
WARRANT announced in September 2008 that it was splitting with Jani Lane six months after the band first reunited with the troubled vocalist. He has since been replaced by Robert Mason (LYNCH MOB, CRY OF LOVE, BIG COCK). Behind-the-scenes footage of WARRANT on the road in Oklahoma on March 27, 2009 can be viewed below.
