Details surrounding the death of former Warrant singer, Jani Lane, have emerged. Sources said that investigators who searched Comfort Inn in Woodland Hills, CA on Thursday, August 11 found a half-empty vodka and prescription medication in the hotel room where the rocker stayed.

Lane, who was pronounced dead on the scene, has a history of alcohol abuse. TMZ said that his death is treated as "an accidental overdose or a possible death from natural causes." Autopsy is to be held on Friday, August 12.

On another news, his former bandmates in Warrant have released a joint statement to express their regret. "We are deeply saddened to hear the news of Jani's passing," Warrant said. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Jani was a very important part of our lives for a long time. We will always be incredibly proud of the music we created together. He was a true talent and will be missed by all of us."

They have also scheduled a tribute in their Grand Forks, North Dakota concert on Friday.

In the meantime, Lane's rep Sullivan Brigg told E! News, "He was an incredible and gifted musician and a dear friend, but he had a lot of problems. It's no secret that Jani's had a difficult time for many years. Our genre of music has lost a real legend. I'll miss him."
