Biography

Cinderella is an American band that was formed in Philadelphia in 1982 by vocalist Tom Keifer and bassist Eric Brittingham. In addition, the initial lineup of Cinderella featured Tony Destra on drums and Michael Schermick on guitar.

In 1985, Schermick and Destra left Cinderella to join Britny Fox (another Pennsylvania-based band). They were replaced by guitarist Jeff LaBar and drummer Jim Drnec. It was this lineup that recorded their first album, Night Songs (although the drums were played by session drummer Jody Cortez).

Shortly after the recording, Drnec was replaced by (former London drummer) Fred Coury, who joined in time to be included as the drummer of record in the album’s liner notes. The album, released in August 1986 went on to become triple Platinum, selling 50,000 copies per week at one point.

During the Night Songs tour, Cinderella were exposed to a very large audience opening for Bon Jovi (on their tour for Slippery When Wet) and David Lee Roth (on tour for support his Eat ‘Em and Smile album).

Cinderella’s second album, Long Cold Winter, was released in 1988. The 254-show tour to support it lasted over 14 months and included dates on the Moscow Music Peace Festival along side other glam metal heavyweights such as Ozzy Osbourne, The Scorpions, Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and Skid Row. A highlight of the tour’s stage show featured Keifer being lowered to the stage while playing a white piano during their radio hit Don’t Know What You Got ‘Til It’s Gone.
