Fred Coury

Fred Coury, born on October 20, 1967, in Johnson City, New York, is an American drummer, best known for his drumming with the glam metal band, Cinderella (1986–1991, 1996–present).

Coury has played for a number of high-profile bands throught his career, such London (1985-1986), Cinderella (1986–1991, 1996–present), and Arcade (1992-1994).

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 December 1987 when health issues forced Adler off the road. 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 newborn baby the day before.

Today, Fred Coury spends his time in Los Angeles in his recording studio Double Forte Music composing and performing music for television. He also composes music, including the goal song, for the Los Angeles Kings hockey team.

Coury cites Tommy Aldridge, Bobby Blotzer, Eric Carr, Peter Criss, Tommy Lee and Neil Peart as his drumming inspirations.
