Hair Metal Mansion



The official HMM fan group for Cinderella

Members: 220
Latest Activity: Dec 17, 2014



Started out as strictly a glam band, but evolved into a much more bluesy, melodic band in the 90's. Became MTV darlings with a string of catchy singles and successful albums. Little label or media support slowed the band down in their later years, but they continue to have a loyal following.

Members came and went during their formative years in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, including Michael Kelly Smith who would later resurface in Britny Fox. By the time Jon Bon Jovi had discovered them and recording had started for what would become Night Songs the band was comprised of Tom Keifer (vocals/guitar), Jeff LaBar (guitar), Eric Brittingham (bass) and Fred Coury (drums). Success was instant, while they toured with some of the biggest names of the era the album shot up to #3 on the charts on its way to selling over three million copies behind such hits as "Nobody's Fool" and "Somebody Save Me".

Long Cold Winter had similar success, with hits such as "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)", "Coming Home" and "Gypsy Road", before the group got more in touch with their bluesy roots for the third album, and then the bottom fell out. Heartbreak Station sold a disappointing (for Cinderella) one million copies, and by 1993 Coury left (joining Arcade) to be replaced by Kevin Valentine whom would himself leave half way through recording sessions for Still Climbing to make room for Ray Brinker. The group called it a day in 1995 and went their separate ways without much fanfare.

The original band reformed in 1998 for the Unfinished Business tour and released a couple live albums. They continue to tour to this very day, but rumored new material has yet to come forward. In 2004 LaBar and Brittingham formed Naked Beggars while Keifer began work on a solo album as well as recording with American Idol alumni Bo Bice. Down, but never out, Cinderella will be sure to usher in the new wave of hard rock.

In 2006 Cinderella toured with Poison. Both bands celebrated the 20th anniversary of their debut albums, Night Songs and Look What the Cat Dragged In. The tour was a success and became one of the most successful tours of 2006, averaging about 20,000 people in attendance per night.

Cinderella planned to tour in 2008 with Warrant, Lynch Mob, and Lynam, but on June 13th that year, Tim Heyne, the band’s manager, said in a press release: “It is with unbelievably deep regret that I must announce that Cinderella’s Tom Keifer’s left vocal cord has hemorrhaged, thereby making it impossible for him to sing in the immediate future.” More recently, Eric Brittingham was a guest on "The Classic Metal Show" and explained Cinderella's current situation. Eric stated that Tom's left vocal chord has hemorrhaged but he did not pop it open. Tom is resting for this summer and Cinderella also tried to aim for a tour sometime in the near future.
