In a recent conversation with “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk“, Cinderella’s Tom Kiefer opened up about late guitarist Jell LaBar, who passed away last year.
Opening about LaBar, Kiefer said:
“I’ve gotta tell you, you’re never really ready for that kind of loss; you’re not prepared to hear that kind of thing. And everyone is still trying to grieve and process it. It’s an emotional topic. Jeff was just such a passionate, amazing person, musician, human. He had a huge heart. And it was a tough one, man. It still is, for everybody. […]
“Jeff and I had a great relationship. I loved Jeff, I really did, and have so many great memories of our journey together. He was amazing, and not just what he contributed to the music. Jeff had such a great sense of humor, and some of my favorite memories with Jeff are just kind of cutting up together on the bus.
”We were both big movie fans and could quote pretty much all our favorite movies. And we’d sit in the front lounge and quote ‘Arthur’ and ‘The Big Lebowski’ and ‘Caddyshack’. He was just a really passionate, really fun guy to be around, and obviously, an amazing performer. He was a huge part of Cinderella. […]
“We had a good relationship. We really did. I loved him, and I know in my heart he loved me. And in the end, that’s what’s most important. And I have great memories of him and they’re forever in my heart. And I cherish them.”
