In a recent conversation with Metal Mike for the 80’s Glam Metalcast podcast, John Corabi talked about his upcoming book.
Here’s what he said:
“The book is coming out early next year. I worked with Crue author Paul Miles. Paul is amazing. The Mötley stuff is like 30 years ago. I’d say that certain things happened on certain dates, and he would say “I don’t think that’s right!” He researched everything… dates, times, all that s*it. I don’t really think I’m telling people anything they don’t already know.
”The book goes through me joining the band, being in the band, and leaving the band. It goes through my mental state and the state of my ulcers as certain things were happening. I explain how I fit with the band, but then I never really did fit with them. I don’t think it says anything that will surprise anybody. I don’t mean this to sound weird, but I don’t really care what those guys think.
”When they brought Vince [Neil] back, I accepted everything. It’s not me that’s the one that keeps bringing it up. I’m past it. I’m over it. I didn’t really want to do a book. Paul kind of talked me into it. Paul said, “Aside from a few chapters in ‘The Dirt‘, you’re largely a mystery and there’s not a lot of stuff that people know about you.” He thought my story was fascinating, so I was like ‘OK…. we’ll do it.’ It’s called “Horseshoes and Hand Grenades” and it’s about perseverance and about someone who’s been close a lot, at all the right places at all the wrong times!”
