Hair Metal


Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone) and Nobody's Fool were Philadelphia's own, Cinderella's, big hits. Gypsy Road was another fine track.

Keifer's voice is among the singularly unique of the late 1980s. If you heard it, you knew right away you were listening to Cinderella.

It was that distinctive. We'd argue it was a Top 5 most distinctive of the entire genre of Hair Metal.

Band Members

Drums seemed to be a tough thing for the band to nail down, as there were 3 drummers, Barker, Destra, and Drnec prior to Coury's arrival in 1986. In fairness to the retelling, Destra and ex-guitarist Schermick left to start Britny Fox.

Past Band Members

Cinderlla took on a ton of touring and session players in their 31+ years of writing, recording and playing shows around the world.

Some of them are famous, like touring drummer Kenny Aronoff who has played with John Cougar, John Fogerty, Jon Bon Jovi, and probably every other John in the world.

Same goes for Jeff Paris who worked with Lita Ford, Vixen and Y&T.

I think what we're trying to say is that there are too many to list.

One thing that does stand out though were the inclusion of two female backup singers, Roberta Freeman and Dianne Jones, from 1990 to 1991. You're doing real touring when you can justify the real singers to ride the tour bus.


The Hit: Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)

So whiney, it's unreal. It's also unreal cause it's great.
