In a new video message requested by the Syncin’ Stanley former Motley Crue vocalist John Corabi said that he doesn’t personally believe in the use of backing tracks during live concerts but doesn’t fault any artists who may rely on them.
“Dude, I kind of feel like to each his own. Whatever everybody needs or anybody needs to enhance their show or make their show great, whatever. Personally, I don’t use them. Me, personally, I don’t believe in ’em, but again, that’s me.
”Somebody else may. I know when I was in Motley, we used to use some enhancements on the backing vocals and orchestra parts and things like that. But for the most part nowadays, it’s just two guitars, bass, drums, and a vocal, and just go. So, again, to each his own.”
Video footage has emerged of Vince Neil lip-syncing to a track at an MÖTLEY CRÜE concert.
In a video that can be seen below (courtesy of TikTok user larrycherry55), Neil can be seen moving away from the microphone while the backing track still continues.
It is unclear at which show was this record, however, CRÜE played two shows in Atlantic City, New Jersey earlier this month, where this footage most likely come from.
Earlier, Motley Crue fans have called out Vince Neil for delivering an uninspiring performance at Coachella.
Vince Neil performed Motley Crue’s classic songs during a concert at the Spotlight Showroom at the Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella, California on the 28th of January.
Here’s the response from Motley Crue fans:
“I was sorely disappointed in his performance tbh.”
“Almost every picture I see of him on stage he appears to be uninspired and bored. I saw the stadium tour twice this summer and the Crüe is legendary in my eyes. But regardless of how anyone believes Vince sounds I think that sadly, his passion for performing is a thing of the past.”
“I think he gets better the more he tours.”
“The so called fans that bash him daily are not happy with there own lives so it’s all irrelevant”
“Must have been has drunk has he was. Not that good.”
“He was terrible and vulgar at the Milwaukee show!!! They need to move on.”
“He was embarrassing in Vegas hope he can pull it together.”
Bassist Nikki Sixx tweeted about Motley Crue’s first rehearsals together with John 5.
See below what Sixx shared:
“Well that was f*cking epic. @john5guitarist walks into rehearsal and we just rip the set from top to bottom seamlessly. That took 90 minute’s and then the next few hours we just laughed and told dumb rockstar war stories. @MotleyCrue DAY 1”.
