Eddie Trunk, co-host of VH1 Classic‘s “That Metal Show”, conducted an interview John Corabi — former lead singer of MÖTLEY CRÜE, THE SCREAM and UNION — during the new metal cruise Monsters Of Rock – The Voyage, which set sail on February 25 and returned three days later via Ft. Lauderdale / Bahamas / Key West. You can now watch the chat below.
Corabi originally joined CRÜE in 1992 as the replacement for the group’s original singer, Vince Neil, who was fired due to personal differences. With Corabi on vocals, MÖTLEY CRÜE released one critically acclaimed full-length CD, which ended up being a commercial failure in the wake of grunge despite a Top-Ten placing on the album chart. When Neil returned to the fold in 1997, Corabi was left on his own and formed the band UNION with ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick.
Corabi recently completed work on an acoustic album which he says will include “old songs, new songs and just a sample of things to come.” Tentatively due in the spring, the set will contain two versions of the MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s song “Hooligan’s Holiday” — a stripped-back acoustic version and a more elaborate but still acoustic-based band arrangement — as well as a version of the CRÜE‘s “Loveshine” and even a song by Corabi‘s first band, ANGORA, which was originally produced by Steve Vai.
