Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBar has passed away at the age of 58. As of yet there has been no cause of death given. The guitarist had been estranged from his Cinderella bandmates for reasons, he admits, were of his own doing. LaBar openly talked, a few years back, about his battle with drugs and alcohol and how it has kept the band from performing shows, and how it has kept he and lead singer Tom Keifer from talking. Jeff’s son Sebastian posted the news of his father’s passing on his social media stating,
“So i just got the call… Jeff LaBar, my father, my hero, my idol, passed away today. I’m currently at a loss for words. I love you pop!”
LaBars father also shared the tragic news on his Facebook page,
Bob LaBar posted:
“We have been told that our son Jeff LaBar has passed away in Nashville.”

Wow. I’m very sorry to hear of the passing of Jeff LaBar. The 1st Cinderella album had a huge effect on me. I was lucky to play with Jeff a number of times. He was the best. He will be dearly missed. Here we are rocking together back in the day. https://t.co/vjQtK09XMm
