MayorsManor LIVE radio with Fred Coury of Cinderella

Fred Coury Cinderella Grezky LA Kings MayorsManor

From meeting Gretzky in 1994 to sound check in 2012, Coury is all about the Kings

It’s an old cliche, but it’s true. Rock stars want to be athletes and sports stars want to be musicians.

In the case of Fred Coury, he’s sort of found a way to do both.

Best known as the man behind the drum kit for Cinderella, the New York native has also turned his love affair with hockey into a part-time job. When Coury’s not out on the road or in the studio working on music, he’s thinking up new ways to enhance the LA Kings in-arena experience. From participating in an advisory board run by Luc Robitaille to creating the ‘Go Kings Go’ song you hear inside Staples Center, Coury is as in tune with LA hockey as he his with the bandmates he’s shared the stage with all across the world.

When he returned to town recently for a big show in Orange Country, MayorManor was on hand for sound check and spent some time with Fred before the show.  We talked about his brand new LA Kings drum kit, the best live crowds, life on the road, meeting Wayne Gretzky, his role with the team…and of course, the ‘LA Kings super group’ idea we’ve been pitching the last few months.
