Former MÖTLEY CRÜE singer John Corabi says that there is “zero chance” of him ever reuniting with his former bandmates.
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.
After a recent article emerged online claiming — falsely — that CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx issued an ultimatum to Neil to lose a significant amount of weight for the band’s comeback tour or be fired and replaced by Corabi, adding that CRÜE held a series of rehearsals in Los Angeles late last month with Corabi on vocals, John took to his Facebook page to write: “Ok Gang, I’ve recieved a TON of messages from a lot of you who have unfortunately fallen for this ‘CROCK OF SH*T!!!!’
“Here’s the real deal… I can categorically state here once and for all that the chances of my ‘return’ to MÖTLEY are 0%…
“1) There is No Way, Nikki ordered an ultimatum to Vince, and used me as leverage! 2) There were absolutely ZERO secret rehearsals… And 3) After my incredibly STUPID portrayal in ‘The Dirt Movie,’ and the ludicrous sh*tty statements of one of the band members in regards to my contributions and lack of ‘writing talents,’ yours truly is NOT even remotely interested in doing that again…
“Don’t buy into the ‘CLICK BAIT BULLSH*T!!!!!’
“I wish TOMMY, NIKKI, MICK, and VINCE the best on their tour, and their future endeavors!!!!”
Vince Neil recently revealed that he is trying out a new toning machine in an apparent effort to get in shape for MÖTLEY CRÜE and DEF LEPPARD upcoming “The Stadium Tour.”
