Ex-Motley Crue singer John Corabi commented on Mick Mara’s decision to retire.
In a recent conversation with “Life In The Stocks“, Corabi said:
“I do [have an opinion]. I will just say this: I know John  as well. He’s brilliant, and I cannot say ‘brilliant’ loud enough, he’s a brilliant guitar player and a great dude. But the verdict for me is out until I hear a statement from Mick.
”The statement that we heard was put together by Motley and their people. And I’m not totally sure I believe what they’re saying. So I’ll just leave it at that.
“I don’t totally believe Mick’s reasons for leaving Motley. And I don’t even know if he left Motley. I believe maybe he was shown the door. Because as long as I can remember…
“F*ck, when we were doing the ‘Generation Swine’ record, they were complaining about his guitar playing then. And if you really look at all of the records they’ve done since then… The majority of the guitars on the ‘Swine’ record, which is one of the reasons why I sued the guys, are mine.
“They were complaining about Mick the whole f**king time. And I don’t know if he played on ‘New Tattoo’, I’m not sure, but I know on ‘Red, White & Crue‘, it was D.J. Ashba; on ‘Saints Of Los Angeles’, it was D.J. Ashba; and on ‘The Dirt’ [soundtrack], it was John 5.
“I don’t know. I could be totally wrong about this, so don’t run around and f**king, whatever put it in print yet, but I’m just saying I’m waiting for Mick’s response. The one that we’ve all heard came from Motley and their management.”
