John Corabi Addresses Claims About Vince Neil Calling Him For Vocal Lessons

Former Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi recently appeared as a guest on Artists on Record and talked about the rumors circulating about him and Vince Neil. He revealed that they are not true but gave some details about their relationship.

As you know, when Mötley Crüe decided to part ways with Vince Neil in 1992, John Corabi joined the band to replace him as the lead singer. Corabi contributed to the band’s self-titled 1994 album and the EP, ‘Quaternary.’ Later on, during the making process of their new album, Mötley Crüe’s record label wanted Vince Neil to return to the band or else they wouldn’t fund the album.

The band’s popularity started to gradually decline during this period as they couldn’t receive the anticipated success. Hence, the Mötley Crüe members accepted the record label’s condition, and Neil returned to the band while they parted ways with John Corabi. Rumors were circulating for a while that Vince Neil had called Corabi to give him vocal lessons.

When asked whether it is true, the singer revealed that they are just rumors, so nothing like that happened, but he recalled meeting him at a festival. Corabi stated that people assume he and Vince Neil don’t get along well, but it is not true. Neil wanted to talk to him after his performance at the festival, and they chatted for hours. John Corabi explained that he talks to Neil whenever he runs into him also has a good relationship with Tommy Lee and Mick Mars, but he is not on good terms with Nikki Sixx.

When asked about whether Vince Neil ever called him for vocal lessons, John Corabi replied:

“No, Vince is a good dude, man. You know what’s funny? Everybody assumes that Vince and I can’t stand each other, and what’s really funny is we did a festival together here in Nashville probably six or seven years ago. I played earlier in the evening and I kind of hung out for a little bit, and I had some cocktails with some friends, and then I was leaving, and I was walking past his bus.

The guys in his band came out, and they’re like, ‘Dude, Vince wants to say hi’ so I went on the bus, and we sat there for a f*cking hour. We just sat there and bullshitted. We were laughing about a bunch of stuff, and then it was funny he did the ‘Monsters on the Mountain,’ unfortunately fell and broke some ribs. A little freak accident, but it was funny; the next day, the guy’s in his band, obviously.

Dan and Mark, and Jeff Blando, they were all there. I played two or three times that weekend, and I was leaving the venue. I saw Dana, and they were like, ‘Hey, dude, I got to tell you. As soon as we got here last night, Vince saw that you were on the bill, and he was looking for it. He just wanted to say hi.’ So we actually get along, again without opening a can. I’ve been talking with Tommy quite a bit. I always talk to Mick. We’ll text each other like funny little memes and things like that. I get along with Vince, but it is for some reason Nikki’s got a f*cking thing for me.”
