Yesterday, the music world lost Jeff LaBar, guitarist for the band Cinderella. Cinderella is one of those bands from the 80’s that got lumped in with the whole “hair metal” sub-genre but, when you strip away all the glam aspects, deep down, they were a really great blues rock band. Arguably, singer Tom Keifer has one of the best rock voices. After hearing about the passing of Jeff, for some reason the Cinderella song “Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone)” popped in my head. The song is featured on the band’s second album, 1988’s Long Cold Winter. The song was the bands highest charting song. It’s more than a “power ballad” it’s just a really great and well written song.
