The surviving members of Cinderella have commented on the passing of the band’s guitarist, Jeff LaBar.
Vocalist/guitarist Tom Keifer, bassist Eric Brittingham and drummer Fred Coury issued the following statement Wednesday night: “Heavy hearts cannot begin to describe the feeling of losing our brother Jeff. The bond between us over decades of creating music and touring the world is something that we as a band uniquely shared. Those memories with Jeff will be forever alive in our hearts. It’s unimaginable that one of our band brothers has left us.
“We’re sending his wife Debinique, his son Sebastian, family, and friends our deepest condolences.
“Jeff’s memory and music will be with us forever.
“We all — band, family and management — appreciate the overwhelming outpouring of love. Rest in peace, Jeff.”
LaBar was found dead by his wife, Debinique Salazar-LaBar, on Wednesday inside his apartment in Nashville. He was 58 years old.
