Mick Mars’ New Solo Album Has Some Uncertainties, According To John Corabi
Former Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi revealed his thoughts on Mick Mars‘ new solo record during a recent Facebook live stream. According to the musician, there are some uncertainties about the album.
Back on December 31, 2015, Mötley Crüe went on the stage for a show that was planned to be their last at that time. The same year, Crüe’s guitarist Mick Mars announced he was working on a solo album along with former member John Corabi. The next year, Mars released snippets of the songs ‘Gimme Blood’ and ‘Shake The Cage’ which featured Corabi.
Later on, Corabi revealed that he didn’t contribute to the songwriting process of the songs, but he is open to collaborating with Mars for more new material. Although Mars made the announcement for his new solo record six years ago, he didn’t release any new material for a long time.
During his live stream on Facebook, John Corabi talked about Mick Mars’ upcoming solo album and the recordings he made with the guitarist. He said that Mick asked him to sing a couple of songs at that time and released snippets of them after the recordings. Corabi then said he has no idea whether Mars will be using these songs in the album.
Following that, Corabi stated he and Mick Mars wanted to do more music together, but he wasn’t able to do due to his and Mars’ busy schedule. The singer then said they have to wait and see, but he is hoping that Mars used those songs in his forthcoming solo album.
During a live session on Facebook, John Corabi said the following:
“A couple of years ago, Mick asked me to sing a couple of songs, and I did it. He put snippets of them out, but he’s gone on to do a full record. And as of right now, I have no idea whether or not Mick is using those songs. It’s Mick’s solo record. He just asked me to sing two tunes.
Unfortunately… I wanted to do more, and Mick wanted me to do more, but I wasn’t able to, because of my schedule and because of Mick’s schedule. So we’ll all just have to wait and see. I’m as excited to hear Mick’s record as you are. And we’ll see. Hopefully, he used those songs. Maybe he didn’t. I don’t know.”
