John Corabi takes high road despite Sixx’s negative comments about ‘Mötley Crüe’ album
After Nikki Sixx criticized John Corabi‘s work on Mötley Crüe‘s self-titled album that was released back in 1994 by stating in part that Corabi could not write lyrics and the album was “very unfocused”, Corabi took the high road by posting the following message yesterday on his artist Facebook page:
“As my email, texts, and phone is blowing up over this, I’d like to publicly retort to this. “Thank you to Motley Crue for the 5 years we had together. I’m extremely proud of the record we recorded TOGETHER!!!! And your phone call to me asking to join your band, has honestly helped my career immensely. I have done everything since, MY WAY, under MY TERMS, and I’m happy knowing I haven’t followed any trends, caved to any record label, and just basically been myself. I am who I am, I write the way I write, and I’m beyond happy being the person I am…I have nothing but mad respect for Motley, including Mr. Sixx…And wish them ALL the best with their future endeavors…
I REALLY don’t give a shit about any of this nonsense!!!! (This is it kids… Enjoy your day!!!)”
Sleaze Roxx attended John Corabi‘s tour stop in Toronto, Canada where he was playing the Mötley Crüe album in its entirety, and stated in its concert review: “I definitely obtained a new appreciation for the ‘Motley Crue’ record, and for John Corabi as an entertainer and performer. If you get the chance to see Corabi deliver his ’94 Motley experience, don’t miss it!”
While Sixx might not be keen on the Mötley Crüe album, Corabi announced in October 2015 that he was planning on releasing a CD/DVD of his gig at The Basement East in Nashville, Tennessee on October 27, 2015, which was part of his successful Motley ’94 tour.
