During a recent appearance on “Artists on Record,” former MÖTLEY CRÜE singer John Corabi talked about his relationship with Vince Neil.
After MÖTLEY CRÜE parted ways with lead singer Vince Neil in February 1992, Corabi was hired as his replacement. Corabi recorded the self-titled Mötley Crüe album in 1994 and the EP Quaternary.
Now, when asked about the rumors that Neil once approached him for vocal lessons, Corabi replied: “No, Vince is a good dude, man. You know what’s funny? Everybody assumes that Vince and I can’t stand each other, and what’s really funny is we did a festival together here in Nashville probably six or seven years ago. I played earlier in the evening and I kind of hung out for a little bit, and I had some cocktails with some friends, and then I was leaving, and I was walking past his bus.
He continued: “The guys in his band came out, and they’re like, ‘Dude, Vince wants to say hi’ so I went on the bus, and we sat there for a f*cking hour. We just sat there and bullsh*tted. We were laughing about a bunch of stuff, and then it was funny he did the ‘Monsters on the Mountain,’ unfortunately fell and broke some ribs. A little freak accident, but it was funny; the next day, the guy’s in his band, obviously.
“Dan and Mark, and Jeff Blando, they were all there. I played two or three times that weekend, and I was leaving the venue. I saw Dana, and they were like, ‘Hey, dude, I got to tell you. As soon as we got here last night, Vince saw that you were on the bill, and he was looking for you. He just wanted to say hi.’ So we actually get along, again without opening a can.”
