    HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale joined CINDERELLA's Tom Keifer on stage this past Wednesday (April 15) in Nashville, Tennessee to perform the CINDERELLA classic "Nobody's Fool". Fan-filmed video footage of her appearance can be seen below.In a 2010 interview with Lithium Magazine, Lzzy admitted that she once had a crush on Keifer and fantasized about marrying him. She said: "This is going to sound so girly, but the first thing that attracted me to CINDERELLA was Tom Keifer. It was those magnificent lips. They [CINDERELLA] were my version of the BACKSTREET BOYS or SPICE GIRLS. But while my friends were into those bands because they were our generation, I would be watching CINDERELLA.I have the video collection of 'Night Songs' [CINDERELLA's 1986 debut album] and I would watch these videos and be, like, 'I am going to marry Tom Keifer,' not realizing at the time that he was slightly out of my reach. They're [CINDERELLA] from the same area [of Pennsylvania] that we're from and by the time we got into the scene they were out."She added: "Well, some day I'll meet you [Tom Keifer] and confess all of these things to you."Keifer's debut solo album, "The Way Life Goes", sold 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 78 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on April 30, 2013 via Merovee Records (through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group).

    In a brand new interview with, MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil was asked about the band's "The Final Tour", which kicked off last year and will end New Year's Eve at the Staples Center in Los Angeles after one more round of North American gigs."We've been together 35 years; that's long enough," he said. "We don't want to be a band that, in 10 years from now, you go see them and there's maybe one guy left of the band. That's not MÖTLEY CRÜE. MÖTLEY CRÜE is the four of us and we want to go out on top."When their retirement was announced last year, the CRÜE members actually signed a legal contract saying that they could not go back on their agreement to cease touring.Asked in an interview with For Bass Players Only if there is any chance of a reconsideration, MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx laughed and said: "For me, no, never. Every version of that question has been asked and there's all the trick questions: 'Would you do it for $100 million for five shows in Dubai?'"He continued: "Y'know, let's just get to the core of it: Do you want us to renege on our word? We don't want to. I don't need to name the bands that have. It's obvious. It's okay if they want to do that, and it's okay if their fans accept it. For us, we didn't want to do that. Plus, I have less years in front of me than I have behind me, and it's the same for all my bandmembers. There's a track record of what we've done together, and I think we each individually want to go out and do some other stuff."Sixx added: "If it was just about money, it would be different. But it's not about money. It's about credibility. And, you know, the next day after we take our final bow, I'm gonna look at my band members and say, 'Wow, dudes, everything we said the first day we got together, the very first band rehearsal, we did it.' And then I'm right back at it. I've got my fingers in many pies and I'm very excited about creating stuff and watching it blossom and bloom and harvest it and get on with the next thing. I think it's a very exciting thing to look forward to as well."To coincide with the announcement of the last show, the band released a new video, "All Bad Things", which includes clips from throughout their career.The 2014 leg of "The Final Tour" was one of last year's top-grossing tours, selling close to a million tickets across 72 cities and grossing more than $45 million.Dates for 2015 include a tour of Australia and New Zealand, European festival shows, and summer shows in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
