Charlie Owens and Randy Norris of Bleach Bangs Radio recently conducted an interview with Tom Keifer, best known as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of the Philadelphia-based blues-rock band CINDERELLA. The chat can be heard in its entirety using the widget below.Keifer's video for the song "The Flower Song" can be seen below. The track was inspired by Tom's wife Savannah, who also wrote and co-produced some of Keifer's debut solo album, "The Way Life Goes", which 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). "Women are God's greatest gift to our world, truly beautiful inside and out," Keifer says. "'The Flower Song' is about recognizing your one true love in a world filled with so many amazing women. It can be dizzying. But then, you see the one. A miracle! I thank God every day for my miracle, inspiration and one true love, Savannah." "The Flower Song" video was filmed in Printer's Alley in Downtown Nashville and it features Keifer's friends and family, including his son, Jaidan, playing Keifer as a child. "He had never acted before but fell right into it, no problem," says Tom. "The Flower Song", the album's first single, was serviced to AAA radio stations nationwide on February 4, while "Solid Ground" was serviced to all rock formats on March 11. Keifer wrote "The Flower Song" with Jim Peterik, formerly of the bands SURVIVOR and the IDES OF MARCH. "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.
