Tom Keifer would not release Cinderella’s 1999 era songs if he had them since only demos
Cinderella frontman Tom Keifer was recently interviewed by long-time Sleaze Roxx contributor Ruben Mosqueda for KNAC.
Fans clamouring for more Cinderella material may have to keep waiting for a very long time. After revealing in an interview with Sonic Perspectives that he wasn’t interested in revisiting the unreleased material that was written for Cinderella‘s debut album Night Songs, Keifer also addressed the Cinderella material that was recorded in or about 1999 when the band signed with John Kalodner to Sony Records.
Keifer was specifically asked who produced that material and if he had those songs in his possession, whether he would release them. The singer replied (with slight edits): “Those were only demos, so they weren’t masters. The label pulled the plug, there was a lawsuit, and we have a non-disclosure so I can’t discuss the details but that’s what led to the lawsuit. So, to answer your question, they’re not something that I’d release if I had them in my possession because they are in demo form.”

Wikipedia states the following about that period of time for Cinderella (with slight edits): “Around 1999, the band was signed by John Kalodner to Sony Records. However, the band was dropped by the label before a new album could be released, plunging the band into three years of litigation. Cinderella toured again in 2000 and 2002.”
