John Corabi Admits Leaving The Dead Daisies Due To The Fear Of Losing His Voice

Deciding to leave a project is a tough call, but sometimes it might be necessary, especially if, as a vocalist, your voice is at stake. When it came to it, the former Dead Daisies lead vocalist John Corabi had to call it quits and leave the band to ensure keeping his voice intact as long as possible but at his own pace.

“I said, ‘Man, I have to get off the carousel for a minute here,’” revealed the singer to Backstage Pass Rock-News about his decision to prioritize his health. “I was just concerned that, you know, if a guitar player breaks a string, they can change it, they can break a drum head, you can change it if I blow out my voice, I’m kind of f*cked.”

He added, “The Dead Daisies are set up to have anybody come in, so I was just concerned about that. Then the other part of it was the schedule was so hectic that my son was calling me, who’s my drummer in my solo band, and he’s like dad, ‘Literally, you suck like, we were doing all these gigs, and now you’re off doing this thing with the Daisies when are we going to play together again?’ So I had the guilt thing going around in my head as well, so I just said, ‘You know what? I’ve done this for four years now. I’m going to step away.’”

“I’m still great friends with all the guys, managers, and all their people,” Corabi added before detailing his good relationship with everyone from the band. “I just texted Doug and Glenn yesterday, ‘Have a great tour,’ so it’s all good. I was like, ‘This is crazy,’ like the schedule was maniacally crazy, and I just said, ‘I’m going to do my own thing at my own pace.’”

After a hectic four years with the Dead Daisies, the vocalist was ready to take over the reins of his career moving forward. The vocalist has lived multiple lives during his time with the Scream, Mötley Crüe, the Dead Daisies, and every other venture in between, including his single ‘Your Own Worst Enemy,’ released earlier this year.
