Cinderella guitarist Jeff LaBar has died. He was 58.

LaBar’s passing was confirmed by his son, Sebastian, in an Instagram post that read, “So i just got the call… @jefflabar , my father, my hero, my idol, passed away today. I’m currently at a loss for words. I love you pop! If you could, please share pictures or video of all the fun times we all had with my dad. It would be greatly appreciated.” A cause of death was not revealed.

LaBar played on all four of Cinderella’s studio albums: 1986’s Night Songs, 1988’s Long Cold Winter, 1990’s Heartbreak Station and 1994’s Still Climbing.

A number of figures in the rock world took to Twitter to pay their respects to LaBar upon learning of his passing. Here are just some of the notable reactions, including a statement from LaBar’s Cinderella bandmate Tom Keifer and our own Jacky Bam Bam (you can hear his interview with Jeff here).
