Drummer for Cinderella
Profile Bio Text
Fred Coury (born October 20, 1966 in Johnson City, New York) is best known as the drummer for the glam metal band Cinderella. Coury lists Neil Peart, Peter Criss, Bobby Blotzer, Tommy Lee and Tommy Aldridge as his drumming inspirations. At age 5, Coury started taking violin lessons. At age 6 he participated in his first public performance. Between the ages of 7 and 9 he studied at the Beirut Conservatory of Music in Beirut, Lebanon. At age 10 he added the trumpet to his repertoire. Finally, at age 12 he started to play the drums. By the tender age of 13 he was playing local bars with `Sunjammer`. At age 14 Coury saw Keith Moon and The Who perform in Toronto, Canada at CNE Stadium. This was the moment where Coury realized that performing and being a professional drummer was what he really wanted to do. Spending hours each day in his basement with a friend (who pretended to video tape the action) and Kiss music blasting through the speakers, Coury pretended that he was filming a music video long before MTV became a reality. While many in his neighborhood told him to stop dreaming and get a real job, he was encouraged by his close friends to carry on. In just five short years at the age of 19, Coury returned to CNE Stadium to perform with Cinderella. Coury has played in other bands including London. In 1991 Coury left Cinderella and joined Stephen Pearcy of Ratt to form Arcade. He also briefly substituted for Guns N` Roses drummer Steven Adler in 1988 when health issues forced Adler off the road. However, Coury re-joined Cinderella after Arcade folded. In the summer of 2006, Coury and Cinderella joined Poison on a joint 20th anniversary tour. Coury also filled in for Rikki Rockett during Poison slot on the Songs from the Sparkle Lounge Tour on July 15, 2009 due to the fact that Rikki had a new born baby the day before.
