    The Official Warrant Thread

    Okay, not even sure how many of you care enough about Warrant to post here, but I'm curious of what you all think. They started as a typical hair band with plenty of pop hits, and even a few great songs like Uncle Tom's Cabin, but it was the later unknown stuff that rocked. The albums Ultraphobic and Belly To Belly are very deep, with a real progressive sound. 2001's Under The Influence kicked ass too, with some awesome covers and some great originals. The new album without Jani Lane, Born Again, is very poppy, more so then the first 2 albums, which is kind of dissapointing. The great progression they had with Lane over the years, not to mention his talent, is severly lacking. Any thoughts?

    I thought they did good ole str8 forward rock, which I love, good writing and playing. Jani was a good lyricsist, but when I saw him live, he was horrid.

    I like Warrant. Uncle Tom's Cabin is my favorite song by them. Cherry Pie is cool too. I also think Machine Gun is great rocking tune! The Power from the Gladiator (Boxing) movie is a good song to work out too. I also like their ballads I Saw Red, Heaven are really nice ballads. Oh yeah Bobbie Brown was really hot in the Cherry Pie video! Jani was a lucky man.

    Ditto that.

    I saw them open for Motley Crue years ago...they were terrible. The funniest part was at the end of their set, Lane goes, "See ya next year when we're headlining!!" yeah, ok

    They did headline, I think it was 1991 though (They opened for Crue in 1989) It was Firehouse/Trixter and Warrant headlining. (Hide the hairspray tour? LOL )

    They are ok on the albums, live eh.... nothing really great about them, Ultraphobic does have a few good tunes on it, a lot heavier than the earlier pop stuff

    BMG sent me their live disc last year and it sucked. I do have the Cherry Pie cd, and I really do like Dirty Rotten cd. I usually put that one on when I'm playin Grand Theft. Uncle Tom's Cabin is great, and I also dig In The Sticks which as cheezy as 80's rock gets.

    We played a show with them last year. Steve Sweet is a Class A human being. He was totally cool. We all ended up going out to eat afterwards.

    I'm a huge fan of these guys. I always thought they were unfairly grouped into that 80's label. Most of the albums are solid, Dog eat Dog being one of the bands best. Ultraphobic and Belly to Belly were attempts by the guys to get into that Seattle vibe in the 90's and overall the records are very good. The two new tracks off the covers album were very good. Face is one of my all time faves from the band. Undertow, Family Picnic, Machine Gun, Medecine Man, Southern Comfort are all great songs.
    The lineup has all the original guys back except Jani who's gone solo. From what I hear the guy became a real wreck and for the band to go on it needed to leave Jani behind. Guys like Steven and Joey Allen wouldn't have come back if Jani was still fronting the band. I'm not sure about Jamie St James as the frontman. I've never heard any material from his band Black and Blue and I've only heard a couple of snippets from the new record. I hope its a good cd and I look forward to picking it up. How much of the new record have you heard Aint Talkin Bout Love??? I thought it came out at the end of March.

    I've heard the whole thing. And btw, Tommy Lee knows a thing or 2 about Bobbie Brown, and from what he says she's a nutcase these days, haha.

    By the way, does anyone know who Jani Lane wrote I Saw Red about?

    God I can't believe I am going to post here.

    They were better than what they were given credit for. I actually liked the Belly to Belly album. I guess I always gave them some leeway since Jani is from the Akron area. When they would come to Cleveland it would be a different show than normal.

    I remember one year, there was a group show. Slaughter, Warrant, Dokken (when they reunited with George for that grunge album) and Alice Cooper.

    We had a terrible storm and since this was an outside venue, everybody got cut to a 25 minute set with no sound checks. Really sucked. Jani felt bad and somehow arranged an after show show at a local club. Was pretty cool. Various members of the band were jamming covers. The funniest was when they did Little Wing. Don Dokken would never quit playing the guitar or singing. They tried to end it 3 different times and he would keep on playing.

    Unfortunately George Lynch decided to sit that one out.

    Me Likey!

    I really was only a fan of their early couple of records, but I saw them on the Historic tour with Warrent/Firehouse/Trixter in Chicago. Warrant was really great! Very entertaining, and I was really impressed how well they sounded musically.

    Of course, I also like poison... : )

    Years later, I wondered if that stuff would still hold up, so I bought a DVD boot of that tour from EBAY, and man...I loved it! They rocked and sounded great..if you like them get the boot from Japan on the Cherry Pie tour..its on EBAY all the time. Good stuff!

    Oh, and I believe that tour was officially called the Sex, Booze and Tattoos tour : )

    I heard that they didn't even play on their own records and guys like Reb
    Beach were called in to either show them how to construct a solo or play
    it for them. True or not, it was bands like this that killed rock, not Nirvana
    and Pearl Jam.
