Jeff LaBar, the guitarist best known for playing in the glam rock band Cinderella, died July 14 at age 58. LaBar replaced Cinderella’s original guitarist, Michael Schermick, in 1985, right before the band recorded their debut album, Night Songs. Between their breakout single, “Nobody’s Fool,” and opening for Bon Jovi on tour, the band’s first record ended up going triple platinum, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard 300. Another hit song, “Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone),” nabbed the group its highest Billboard Hot 100 placement at No. 12. The band put out a total of four albums, with the last one, Still Climbing, issued in 1994. After a brief hiatus, Cinderella reunited in 1996 and continued to perform live but never released any more studio material. LaBar also launched a solo career, releasing his debut record, One for the Road, in 2014.
