We all know Cinderella front man Tom Keifer blew a vocal chord, forcing the band to cancel their summer tour. Tom's been on the mend, but there haven't been many comments from the band - or their musician friends. This leads me to wonder if Cinderella are done - or if they will try to tour again this summer?
I think there is a good chance the band will hit the road for select dates this summer - festivals probably - but I doubt a full fledged tour is in the works. I just don't think it makes sense for Tom to risk his voice for any sum of money.
I love Cinderella. I think they are one of the strongest Glam bands of the genre. Their albums are among the best of the best - unique musicianship and strong lyrics.
Picking a favorite Cinderella song is hard. I love "The Last Mile" and "Nobody's Fool." I will say emphatically that "Don't Know What You Got ('Till It's Gone)" is my least favorite of all the Cinderella singles. It drives me crazy that Cinderella had to wait until they released a power ballad as a single to get some respect. Same for Kix, but I digress.
I found a cool clip of "The Last Mile" from Japanese television. The band was the 1989 "Star of the Week" on the particular Japanese show. I love the juxtaposition of the band against the conservatively dressed host. It's a great clip and really represents a moment in time, proving that culture permeates oceans and language barriers. Enjoy.
