"I've Become My Own Cliche" Jani Lane

Found this buried in a bin of puppets....
1997 Warrant Tank Top.
Got this when I went to Toad's Place to see the band with Tricky, Itch E., and a gentleman named Andy...
 I was never really a fan of the band.  Itch and Tricky kept trying to get me into them.  Then I heard the 1996 album "Belly 2 Belly Vol. 1"
And it wasn't the "Cherry Pie" Warrant.  I dug it.  It was heavy, musically and thematically.
So I was happy to go to the show.

After we stuck around to meet the band.  I had most of them sign the shirt.  
And Itch made sure we got pictures...  And he even sent  them to "Metal Edge".
I hung onto this all those years.  Dug it out to get a laugh today...

I think Andy must have took the pictures, since he's not in them...

Here's a track from Belly 2 Belly...

Jani Lane passed away in 2011, after years of substance abuse issues.
I hope he found peace.

And it still fits!!!

And thanks to Nate for crushing on me more than Jani in the 1997 picture....

My first ever "crush" as a kid...  Is retiring...  
Makes me feel old.  
At the same time I think: "We should all be so lucky to love a job so much" that we stay for 44 years...  
Thank you Sonia for helping me learn my ABC's and so much more.  The old  'hood won't be the same without you.

Good luck and again, thank you.

For the record...  Joan Jett was my second crush.

And Brie is my forever crush
