Jani Lane's Final Recording Release Postponed

(Rock News Desk) Justin Murr of Liberty n'Justice has postponed the planned release of Jani Lane's final recording, and apologised to friends and fans of the tragic singer for having appeared to act insensitively. Former Warrant singer Lane, 47, was found dead in a California hotel room last week, having struggled with alcoholism for many years.

His last recorded work was the track Sin with Murr's band, and earlier this week it was announced the single would be made available months earlier than planned because colleagues felt people should hear it.

But the move provoked a backlash and Murr has held back the release. "When I woke on Tuesday morning I had 322 emails. Some stated they couldn't wait to hear the song and others were condemning me for exploiting Jani," he says. "Included in these emails were over 30 requests from radio stations wanting the song to play as soon as possible. The last were the most convincing: they were from people close to Jani, asking me to wait till at least after the funeral." more on this story
