John Corabi feels Mick Mars will not be allowed to release his solo album
Former Mötley Crüe and current The Dead Daisies frontman John Corabi was recently interviewed by Eddie Trunk on SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation. Corabi recently rejoined The Dead Daisies after an almost four year hiatus.
Back in February 2016, Mötley Crüe (at the time) guitarist Mick Mars had released a video teaser of a new track “Gimme Blood” with Corabi on lead vocals. Three years later, Mars was suggesting that he would not be including a song that featured Corabi on his debut solo album.
On whether he might be appearing on Mars‘ solo record, Corabi opined (as provided by SiriusXM‘s Trunk Nation): “I don’t know. And I have to be honest with you, like I texted Mick when that first press release came out and he did not respond, which was odd. So it was funny, I was in Switzerland and I texted his wife Seraina, and I’m like, “Oh, I’m in your motherland, blah, blah, blah.” And she immediately texted me back and said, “Oh, you know, I can’t wait to go there at Christmas” or whatever it was. And then I wrote, “How’s Mick?” Radio silence. And then I got asked at a book signing in London, they said, uh, a fan, and the fan said, “Hey, what do you think of this whole Mötley Crüe thing? You know, the release that was put out?” And I said, “Well, from experience, that release was put out by Mötley Crüe and their management. I’m not saying a word, I don’t believe a word of it, but I’m not saying a word until I hear from Mick.” And then obviously we know what happened there, you know? But Mick‘s record, I don’t know if I’m on it or not. I think that there’s going to be, uh, between me, you and the fence post, I don’t know if the record will come out, because unfortunately, I believe, I could be wrong on this, but I think, his record, when he was finished, he signed a record deal with Allen Kovac’s record label.”
When Trunk noted that was Mötley Crüe‘s label and management, Corabi added: “Yes. And so I gotta believe that they’re not gonna allow him to release that record, because if he generates, I know how those guys work. And it’s like, if he releases this record and makes, you know, any money at all, it’s gonna go to a lawyer to help him with his lawsuit. So they’re probably gonna sit on that record, and I just hope that can get it, get it back, get it out.”
