Monsters of Rock Cruise — It appears that the Monsters of Rock Cruise is off to a rough start. No it hasn’t tipped over, and there are no reports of a broken engine or food poisoning. Yet. But let’s hope it stays upright and everyone is safe. However the entertainment seems to have taken a hit. Two bands are down a key member.

The band Cinderella is reported to only have 3 members on the boat as Tom Keifer is in the hospital with pneumonia. Add to this, L.A. Guns is also a 3 piece for the trip. The bands newest guitarist Michael Grant was denied access to the ship because he didn’t have "proper" documentation.

We’re assuming that would be a passport?

Grant himself has been posting about the days events on his official facebook. And Eddie Trunk’s twitter has confirmed Tom Keifers situation through Cinderella bassist Eirc Brittingham. See posts below.

I did NOT get on the MSC POESIA cruise ship after all. Didn’t have the "proper" documentation. My sincerest apologies to all the LA Guns / Michael Grant fans that we’re there to support. I feel terrible and have gone through hell and back today. Tail between my legs… I’m going home, back to LA

Michael Grant

I’m still with em (L.A. Guns). Just.. Shit happens man. What am I gonna do? Cry about it all day? Fuck that… See you all at the Whiskey on march 23rd. So sorry to all the LA Guns fans on that ship who waited and counted down the days just to see us rock the boat.

@EddieTrunk:

Just ran into Eric from Cinderella in the hall. Said @TomKeiferMusic isn’t making the cruise. In hospital with pneumonia. Get well soon Tom!
