Jeff LaBar – One for the Road

Jeff LaBar - One More For The RoadEverybody goes: “Jeff who??”. Well, nothing strange about that at all, Jeff LaBar doesn’t really count as common knowledge. Even if you happen to be a metal head, the guy is quite anonymous. For you who don’t know who Jeff LaBar is, he is the rhythm guitar player from 80’s hard rock / classic rock band Cinderella. Cinderella were more or less lead guitarist / singer Tom Keifer’s baby and he was also the one who wrote all the songs for that band. Cinderella made it real big back in the mid eighties with brilliant albums like Night Songs (1986), Long Cold Winter (1988) and Heartbreak Station (1990), but after they completely bombed with 1994’s Still Climbing, due to the fact the their brand of melodic hard rock had gone totally out of style when Nirvana and their likes had taken over, the band split up. After that, Cinderella has made plenty of comebacks – 2000 – 2002, 2005 – 2006 and most recently 2010 – but now it’s seems likely that the band is here to stay. Their comebacks have, however, only been as a touring act, but the touring has consolidated them as one of the tightest efforts around.
