Alice Cooper, Dee Snider (TWISTED SISTER), Vince Neil (MÖTLEY CRÜE), Tom Keifer (CINDERELLA), Rob Zombie and all four members of KISS are among the musicians who performed on December 5 at a concert and live auction to raise money for the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. They played with '80s and '90s cover band HAIRBALL to help the future of rock 'n' roll; the children.A backstage interview with Keifer conducted by Sally Steele, publisher of Vegas Rocks! Magazine, can be seen below. The Brennan Rock & Roll Academy gives children the opportunity to grow by offering free music lessons to those that may not be able to get them. They help keep children off the streets, away from drugs, and offer a positive environment that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. 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 via Merovee Records (through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group). "The Way Life Goes" is a raw, introspective look at the roller coaster ride that has been Keifer's life for the past 15 years. From being told that he would never sing again as a result of a partially paralyzed left vocal cord, to the emotional and personal battles that followed, his solo debut is a story of perseverance, a testament to the power of passion and will, when combined with a true love of music.
