Warrant Artist Bio and Lyrics
Warrant came crashing down on the L.A. club scene in 1984. The band that Erik Turner started in July of 1984, would have acquired Jani Lane, Steven Chamberlain, and Joey Allen by 1987. Lane began writing songs for Warrant, and in September 1987 they gained enough recognition to finally record a demo.
Recording on a deal with Paisley records, Warrant recorded a song for the movie Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. The song “Game of War” however, was pulled from the soundtrack just prior to the release of the movie and the band lost their deal with Paisley.
Despite their lack of success, Warrant signed on with Columbia Records in January 1988 and would finally strike gold. Their debut album, Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich, gave way to two chart topping power ballads, “Heaven” and “Sometimes She Cries.” It also produced an eventual rock anthem, “Down Boys.”
Following their major hit record, Warrant would tour with other superstars of the time such as: Paul Stanley, Cinderella, Queensryche, Motley Crue and Kingdom Come. After touring with Kingdom Come, two members Rick Steier, and James Kottak would leave and join Warrant.
Warrants second album, released in 1990 would lead to more intensely successful songs such as “I Saw Red,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” and the title track “Cherry Pie.” However the band would have to overcome some major challenges in the nineties. Lane would leave the band and they’d be dropped by Columbia after releasing an unsuccessful album.
Despite the challenges, Warrant would release albums throughout the nineties and into the millennium. In 2006 they would complete their seventh studio album, titled Born Again.

Brent Woods contact???
They say he is not online at all and refuses to join the computer age. He plays Hollywood with some "all star" band called the Big Ball All-Stars and they have a MySpace page. You could contact Brent there.
He plays in Jani Lane's back up band now. Sad. The guys you have to feel for are Jimmy D'Anda, Kevin Blades and Brent. I mean, there had to be a time that these guys thought they were going to be big rock stars in the Joe Perry, Neil Peart, Eddie Van Halen way. And now, even though they really haven't done anything wrong or embarrassing, they are reduced to being the nameless backing band for the most inconsistent guy in rock music. Wow...that's really got to hurt.

Brent Woods produces no name D list bands and plays Hollywood once a month in that junky cover band. He wears a wig like Robin McCauley does.

Brent Woods from Wildside?
There's a name I haven't heard in ages! Is that fag still around? Biggest asshole in Hollywood who's still a Sunset Strip loser. Brent Woods is a 100% tool bag with a horse face.
