Recent statements by Mick Mars and Carmine Appice suggest that backing tapes were used during Motley Crue’s set in last year’s Stadium tour of the US, which also featured Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts.
With Vince Neil’s questionable singing, many people would welcome the return of Corabi to the Crue. The monetary incentive would be substantial, and as they say, money talks.
According to a 2016 interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Corabi has no hard feelings toward his former colleagues, despite negative comments in the press at the time. Corabi even released a retrospective Crue-era Live ’94 album celebrating his time in Motley.
Rumor has it that Corabi has remained closest to Mick Mars over the years and sought out his approval first when approached about potentially returning to the Crue’s lineup. “John doesn’t want to let Mick down of all people,” the source adds.
“He looks up to Mick like he’s a father figure. Things have gotten really messy with Mick not being in the Crue anymore, but John said Mick is like the ‘Godfather of Metal,’ always and forever.”
This was reported by MetalDen.
Earlier Mick addressed Vince Neil’s vocals in his lawsuit, saying:
“Conversely, other band members are often criticized online, particularly Neil, who is routinely torn to shreds for, among other things, not remembering the songs.”
