Jeff LaBar's Legacy

His career with Cinderella began in 1985 - three years after the band was originally formed. LaBar replaced the glam metal band's original guitarist Michael Schermick.

The guitarist's first album with Cinderella came out one year after joining the team. In 1986, they released its debut album "Night Songs" which immediately conquered Billboard 200's third spot.

Two years later, they gave their fans their next album "Long Cold Winter." It contains the band's most popular song "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)."

Cinderella's first two albums scored triple platinum certifications after selling over three million copies each.

In the years following that, they recorded two more albums - "Heartbreak Station" and "Still Climbing" - and went on tours with Bon Jovi and Poison.

In 2017, Cinderella announced its disbandment after years of going on hiatus.

Apart from working with the band, LaBar stood on his own and recorded his solo album, "One For The Road," in 2014. He appeared on stage with several groups including Freakshow, the Naked Beggars, and Cheap Thrill.

He once put all the blame on himself for the break-up of Cinderella. During his appearance in Another FN Podcast With Izzy Presley, he revealed that his drinking problem caused their disbandment,

"I guess that's what caused a rift ... When I fell out on one of those cruise ships in front of everybody - like, basically O.D.'d - that's when the band, and mostly Tom [Keifer], took notice and was, like, 'What the f-k?'" he said, as quoted by Fox News.

Still, the surviving Cinderella members Keifer, Fred Coury, and Eric Brittingham expressed their heartbreak after losing their former bandmate for good.
