On the podcast The Vinyl Guide, John Corabi appeared as a guest and talked about his professional background. When Motley Crue came up, the singer noted that audience members frequently inquired about his time with the group when he performed.

Corabi proclaimed:

“They go, ‘Hey, man, are you ever gonna release the Motley stuff on vinyl?’
“I go, ‘That’s a Motley question.’ But I can pretty much tell you that the answer is going to be no.”

Why Is Motley Crue Ignoring Its John Corabi Period?

Motley Crue’s former frontman, who was with the band from 1992 to 1996, thinks his former comrades are trying to forget about him. “They’re burying that time, that five years. That five years did not happen in their lives,” he observed. The 1994 self-titled LP was Corabi’s sole album with Motley Crue. The record’s vinyl editions are uncommon and sell for several hundred dollars on used record exchanges.

Corabi stated, “I believe I have one vinyl copy of the Motley record,” adding that the only reason he had a copy is because his ex-wife returned it to him with a package of other stuff.

Why Did John Corabi Join Motley Crue?

After firing founding vocalist Vince Neil, Motley Crue hired Corabi in 1992. The band was disintegrating behind the scenes even though they had enormous success with platinum-selling albums like Shout at the Devil (1983), Theatre of Pain (1985), Girls, Girls, Girls (1987), and Dr. Feelgood (1989).

The official Motley Crue explanation for Neil’s termination was that he had “become a priority” in his life due to his long-time love of motor racing. But the vocalist said that he left because the group wanted to adopt a bluesier sound.

Corabi, a singer for the band the Scream, was hired after passing a number of singing auditions. The end of his reign came in 1996 when Neil came back.

John Corabi Now

Corabi is currently occupied with leading the Dead Daisies. Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple and Richard Fortus and Dizzy Reed of Guns N’ Roses are among the group’s recurring musical guests. Six studio albums and a best-of compilation have both recently been published by The Dead Daisies.

Horseshoes and Hand Grenades: Tales From the Other Motley Crue Frontman, a book by Corabi, was also published in June.
