Cinderella Still Having A Ball Despite Hair Metal Stigma

(RockAAA) Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBar admits the 'hair metal' tag which his band has been tagged with is irritating especially considering they based their sound on the rock scene of the 1970s.

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."
