Cinderella Still Having A Ball Despite Hair Metal Stigma
The Philadelphia rockers are famous for their bluesy hooks and singalong choruses and this year marks a whopping 25-years since their debut record 'Night Songs' was released and the band are still on the road with the original line-up – a rarity in rock n roll. In an interview with the Bellingham Herald LaBar explained: "The funny thing is that at the time, what we did was actually called rock 'n' roll. All of these terms you hear about came later. 'Hair metal' and 'glam' – we didn't get called any of that at the time. We were a rock band.
"I guess we could have been labeled heavy metal. But then Metallica and Anthrax came out, and it was like, 'Now, that's heavy metal.' We were a hard-rock band. So, no, I don't care for the 'hair metal' label. I don't care for any of the labels that came out later. But I accept them."
