During a recent interview with Sofa King Cool Magazine, former MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman John Corabi, who took over as the band’s lead singer in 1992 after Vince Neil left, was asked if he was surprises about ongoing public disputes between the band’s founder and guitarist Mick Mars and his fellow band members.

Corabi responded: “Nope. No. Not at all. I caught a lot of flak of this. And to be honest, I don’t really wanna get into Mick‘s business or MÖTLEY‘s business; it’s not my place. I don’t know why. I caught some flak for this when I was in Europe. I was over there in November and December doing some acoustic shows, and I did a book signing in London — it was like a Q&A book-singing thing — and a fan asked me about the press release that had just come out about Mick not touring with them on the rest of this tour. And all I said was, ‘That’s a statement that’s been prepared by MÖTLEY and their management. I haven’t heard anything from Mick. And until Mick speaks, I have nothing to say about this. But I’m not necessarily agreeing with what I’m hearing.'”

“So, to me, this was just something that was inevitable. It’s unfortunate, but it was inevitable. So… c’est la vie. [Laughs]”

In the lawsuitMick alleges that MÖTLEY CRÜE reduced his share of earnings from 25 percent to a mere 5 percent after revealing his decision to withdraw from touring. Additionally, he states that the group’s attorneys made him feel as if he should appreciate this minimal portion, as they believed they had no obligation to provide him with anything. Mick also asserts that a complete band gathering took place where they chose to “unilaterally” exclude him from MÖTLEY CRÜE.

Mick consistently alleged that bassist Nikki Sixx was “gaslighting” him by suggesting his guitar abilities were declining, even though Sixx didn’t “play a single note on bass” throughout a recent tour, as stated by the guitarist. Mick asserts that all of Nikki‘s segments were pre-recorded.
