Tom Keifer Premieres New Track “The Flower Song” on USAToday.com

January 29th, 2013

TOM KEIFER EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE OF “THE FLOWER SONG” ON USATODAY.COM
FIRST SINGLE FROM LONG AWAITED SOLO DEBUT “THE WAY LIFE GOES” – DUE OUT APRIL 30

 

The time has come for fans of Tom Keifer who’ve been waiting over 10 years to finally hear his solo music. “The Flower Song” has premiered on USAToday.com, who proclaim “has the feel of a vintage Faces cut – a little ‘Maggie May,’ a little ‘Ooh La La’ – with Keifer’s gritty vocals front and center.” It’s the first single from his highly anticipated solo album, The Way Life Goes, due out April 30 via Merovee Records in conjunction with ADA Label Services.

“The Flower Song” will be serviced to AAA radio stations nationwide on February 4, while “Solid Ground” will be serviced to all Rock formats on March 11.

“To me, that song is about how unbelievable it is that you’re able to find that one person that’s perfect for you,” as Tom Keifer explained to USA Today’s Brian Mansfield. “Obviously, it’s told from the perspective of a guy, but I think it’s true for both men and women: When you find that one person, it’s a miracle.”

The Way Life Goes ranges from intimate, organic, acoustic tracks to driving hard rock. It embraces the blues, rock and country roots that have always been present in his unique sound which has generated the sale of over 15 million records worldwide for Cinderella.

In touring news, Keifer will launch his first-ever solo tour on February 9 in Winston-Salem, NC at Ziggy’s. The 14-city trek of small, intimate rooms is an up-close and personal preview of songs from The Way Life Goes, along with some Cinderella classics. Dates beyond February 28 are currently in the works.

CINDERELLA Live at Club Nosturi, Helsinki

June 28th, 2011

cinlogo.jpg

15’TH OF JUNE, 2011

LIVE AT CLUB NOSTURI, HELSINKI

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Cinderella is one of the most successful hard rock bands from the later 80’s. The band, fronted by multi-talented vocalist/guitarist Tom Keifer, formed in Philadelphia back in the early 80’s and their albums NIGHT SONGS, LONG COLD WINTER and HEARTBREAK STATION have sold millions of copies in U.S alone. Things started to change in the 90’s when drummer Fred Coury decided to leave the group. He was replaced by Kevin Valentine but it wasn’t long after before Keifer faced some serious problems with his voice and was forced to be out of commission for a few years. Things changed dramatically in the music world at that time and when the band finally released its fourth, and for now their latest album, STILL CLIMBING in 1994 it didn’t sell as expected and soon the band was dropped by its record company. Cinderella slowly disbanded in 1995. The re-union of the classic line up: Keifer, Coury, guitarist Jeff LaBar and bassist Eric Brittingham did happen in 1998 and since then band has been doing tours, mostly in the USA. The current tour, which celebrates bands 25th anniversary, brought the band to Finland for first time ever. For many fans this concert was a longtime dream come true and the band didn’t disappoint. The sold out Club Nosturi and its over 700 hard rock fans got what they wanted and it seemed that the players themselves were more than pleasantly surprised with the noisy feedback that the crowd gave them.

SWEDENROCK 2010

June 17th, 2010

l_50006a9b770849fe848e93006b2aec9e.jpg

SWEDENROCK FESTIVAL 2010

 

MARKO SYRJÄLÄ, ARTO LEHTINEN, PATRICK CLEMENT

Jävlä Swedenrock, här kommer vi igen. The annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metal‑Rules.Com  team is already the tenth time in a row.  The  2010 line‑up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Therefore, over 70 bands offered nothing but an utter blast and a helluv an experience for the attendees to enjoy metal and rock. Swedenrock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economomic situation worldwide. As mentioned in the first sentence, this is the tenth time in a row when Sweden Rock has been featured on Metal‑Rules.com, so it is quite logical for us to give a real in‑depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock. The  weather wasn’t ideal compared to previous years. It either rained or was windy with a little sunshine. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party. We are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Enjoy or die !!!

Cinderella Guitarist Added To Fat Chick Tribute

June 9th, 2010
WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks

WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks

Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBar has joined the roster of the upcoming tribute album “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks.” Jeff appears as part of Tennessee-based rock outfit Rufus Fontain, featuring original Jackyl vocalist Ronnie Honeycutt, guitarist Tim Lewis, bassist Hayden James and drummer Shawn Hughes (Naked Beggars, John Corabi). The five-piece rips through a high-octane version of the AC/DC concert staple “Whole Lotta Rosie,” showcasing LaBar’s signature guitar tone and Honeycutt’s patented Bon Scott rasp. A sample of the song is now available at the official “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE” MySpace page.

http://www.myspace.com/WholeLottaLoveTribute

“Whole Lotta Rosie” tells the true-life tale of an intimate encounter between the late AC/DC singer and a sexual dynamo by the name of Rosie, all 42″-39″-56″ and 250+ lbs. of her. Rosie’s legendary amplitude provided inspiration not only for the song itself, but also for the large inflatable Rosie that was added to the live AC/DC stage show during the Brian Johnson era. As AC/DC rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young explains in the commentary of the “Live at Donington” DVD (on which the larger-than-life-sized Rosie can be witnessed in all her glory), “We update her every tour now, she comes in new and improved versions. She never gets thinner, she gets bigger! The boobs always get bigger, the butt gets bigger and more tattoos are added. But she still looks sweet and the fans just love her.”

“Having been greatly influenced by AC/DC, I was thrilled to cover ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’ for this unique tribute,” remarks Jeff LaBar. “It gave me the chance to arrange, record and mix an entire song from scratch, rather than just contributing as a guitarist. Naturally, I had the help of some friends from my local Nashville pub! All told, this track took a day to rehearse, a day to record and a day to mix… not bad for a bunch of drunks on the edge!”

“Singing this song is right up my alley, and not just because I like to scream like Bon Scott!” adds vocalist Ronnie Honeycutt. “This album is a celebration of real women everywhere.”
___________________________

As previously reported, “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks” is a musical homage to the big, beautiful women who make the rockin’ world go ’round. The tribute will feature all-new recordings of popular songs praising the fuller female figure, originally made famous by some of the biggest names in rock and pop music. These anthems to abundance will be performed by renowned rock & rollers from yesterday and today, along with a select few rising stars. In direct opposition to the “no fat chicks” mantra espoused by some, “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE” will be a star-studded celebration of large and lovely ladies. Songs confirmed so far include Queen’s arena rock classic “Fat Bottomed Girls” by L.A. Guns singer Phil Lewis, with guitarist Paul LaPlaca and drummer John Macaluso. Additional artists and track listings will be announced as they are confirmed. Samples of all tracks are available at the official “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE” MySpace page.

“WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks” is scheduled for an August 31, 2010 release and is now available for pre-order directly from SplitScreen Entertainment. The first 500 pre-orders will receive a free instant digital download of “Fat Bottomed Girls” and a surprise bonus item upon delivery of the album. Further details can be found at the SplitScreen Entertainment website.
