CINDERELLA's manager Tim Heyne has dismissed Internet reports that the group's frontman Tom Keifer and wife Savannah were recently involved in a car accident.
Commented Heyne: "While I don't normally address [online postings]...I felt it important to take a moment to clear up a couple of erroneous items that have appeared [on the Internet].
"To begin with, Tom and Savannah are happy, healthy and well and were never in a car accident. But the outpouring of fan prayers and concerns for the both of them was awesome and I wanted to thank all of you on their behalf.
"This misinformation got me checking around for a source and we came upon a number of fake MySpace sites and postings pertaining to, and even purporting to be, Tom, Savannah, Eric [Brittingham, CINDERELLA bassist] and Inga [Eric's wife], along with other band relatives and friends. NOT SO! Savannah does not so much as have a MySpace page and none of this activity was generated from any of the CINDERELLA family. This all appears to be the work of folks with too much time on their hands.
"The links to all of CINDERELLA's sanctioned MySpace sites will be put up on the links page of [the band's official] site so that fans can be sure of getting proper and correct information from the band. They are the real deal...and as the slogan goes...accept no imposters!"
