Miss Cynderella (real name: Cynthia Sue Wells) (Los Angeles, California, January 26, 1952 - Palm Desert, California, February 19, 1997) was a member of the GTO's. She was the most elusive and least forward of the seven group members and doesn't always appear with the other six in publicity material.

She married John Cale in 1971, but they divorced in 1975. In Cale's song "Guts" he sings: "The bugger in the short sleeves f*cked my wife" (referring to Kevin Ayers sleeping with Miss Cindy in 1974). Miss Cynderella died in 1997, [1] but her death was not widely reported until 2007, when Pamela Des Barres mentioned it in her book "Let's Spend the Night Together" (where she inadvertently listed the wrong death year for reasons unknown). According to Pamela Miss Cynderella died in '"mysterious circumstances"'.
