Former MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman John Corabi says there is “zero chance” of him ever rejoining the infamous rock act.
MÖTLEY CRÜE released one self-titled, full-length album with Corabi in 1994 after the departure of singer Vince Neil. Despite hitting the Top 10 on the album chart, the album proved to be a commercial failure amidst the burgeoning “grunge” scene. Vince would return to the band in 1997 while John would move on to other projects, including the band UNION with ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick.
After a recent article emerged online falsely claiming that MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx issued an ultimatum to Vince Neil to drop the extra weight or be replaced for the band’s comeback tour by Corabi (it also claimed that Corabi had held rehearsals with MÖTLEY as of late in preparation for the trek), the singer took to his Facebook page to write: “Ok Gang, I’ve received a TON of messages from a lot of you who have unfortunately fallen for this ‘CROCK OF SHIT!!!!’
“Here’s the real deal… I can categorically state here once and for all that the chances of my ‘return’ to MÖTLEY are 0%…
“1) There is No Way, Nikki ordered an ultimatum to Vince, and used me as leverage! 2) There were absolutely ZERO secret rehearsals… And 3) After my incredibly STUPID portrayal in ‘The Dirt Movie,’ and the ludicrous shitty statements of one of the band members in regards to my contributions and lack of ‘writing talents,’ yours truly is NOT even remotely interested in doing that again…
“Don’t buy into the ‘CLICK BAIT BULLSHIT!!!!!’
“I wish TOMMY, NIKKI, MICK, and VINCE the best on their tour, and their future endeavors!!!!”
In 2016, John said that he would avoid talking about MÖTLEY CRÜE in the future because he didn’t want his comments about Nikki Sixx to erupt into a feud.
In other news, John Corabi recently completed work on his autobiography. Titled “Horseshoes And Hand Grenades”, it was written with the help of MÖTLEY CRÜE historian/author Paul Miles, and is due on April 12, 2022 via Rare Bird Books.
