CINDERELLA Drummer Says KURT COBAIN Should Have Donated All His Money To Cancer Research

In a recent interview with, CINDERELLA drummer Fred Coury spoke about how his band — one of the biggest rock acts of the late '80s — was seemingly sidelined by the grunge explosion of the early '90s.

"I'll tell you about the Kurt Cobain [NIRVANA] thing, he knew what he was doing," Coury said. "I mean, if you don't want the fame, don't go on tour, don't go on MTV, and if you don't want the money, there are plenty of kids out there with cancer that do need it. I mean, to blow your brains out in your 10,000-square-foot mansion is ridiculous. He should have been in a small, one-bedroom apartment and should have given all his money to cancer research. So I don't buy any of it — I don't buy any of that crap. It's a total farce that they didn't want the fame."

CINDERELLA are currently touring the U.S as part of the Rock Never Stops 2005 tour, also featuring RATT, QUIET RIOT and FIREHOUSE.
