Hair band frontman scalped by IRS

His hair band’s album might have been called "Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich," but ex-Warrant lead singer Jani Lane is deep in debt to the IRS, public records show.

Lane, 45, who was busted late Wednesday in California for suspicion of DUI, owes $121,024 in federal income taxes, records show.

The Ohio native’s former band peaked in 1990 with the suggestive hit Cherry Pie, but Lane later left the band. He rejoined last summer for a short-lived reunion but they have since parted ways.

What’s owed:

The IRS filed a $121,024 lien against Lane and his ex-wife on April 4, 2005 in the Summit County (Ohio) Recorder’s office. According to this lien, Lane owes income taxes from 1996 to 2003.

His side:

Lane’s manager did not return repeated phone calls and e-mails seeking comment.
