Jeff LaBar, the Cinderella guitarist, died unexpectedly at the age of 58, prompting his distraught son to come out.
JEFF LABAR, a member of the metal band Cinderella, was discovered dead in his Nashville apartment.
Jeff LaBar, 58, was found by his ex-girlfriend Gaile LaBar-Bernhardt, with whom he has a son Sebastian. Gaile had gone to check on the musician after not hearing from him for a few days and becoming anxious. The reason of death has not yet been revealed.
Their son confirmed the news on Instagram, writing: “So I just received the call… My father, my hero, and my idol, @jefflabar, died today.
“I’m at a lost for words right now. Pop, I adore you!”
“Heavy hearts cannot begin to explain the grief of losing our brother Jeff,” stated Jeff’s bandmates Tom Keifer, Eric Brittingham, and Fred Coury in a statement.
“As a band, we have a special bond that has developed over decades of making music and touring the world. Those memories of Jeff will live on in our hearts forever.
