Talking to Full in Bloom, singer John Corabi speaks about his time on Motley Crue (1992-1996), where he also mentioned jamming with them as a five-piece band.
“Nope, that was only the manager, Allen [Kovac], who asked me personally to help them finish that record, and that was it.
“It was funny because I went home one day, and I’m sitting there watching my TV, and it’s like that, ‘Boom, boom, MTV announcement!’
“And it was like, ‘Hey, John Corabi is out of Motley Crue, Vince Neil is back with Motley Crue, but the band is currently moving on as a five-piece. John Corabi will move over to lead guitar.’
“So I’m like, ‘What the f*ck?’ So I called the management company, I went, ‘Where did this come from?’, and they were like, ‘I don’t know…’
“So unless they put it out and they just wanted to drum up some interest or whatever, I don’t know what the deal was.
“But that didn’t come to me, other than the fact that Allen Kovac asked me to help finish the ‘Generation Swine’ record.
“That was all I did, and I did that for maybe two months, a month and a half, and then I never heard from them again.”
