Mötley Crüe Is Halting Mick Mars’ Solo Album From Release, John Corabi Explains

In a recent chat with Chris Gaydos, John Corabi hinted at a possible setback for Mick Mars’ upcoming solo album. He brought up the current spat between the guitarist and Mötley Crüe and explained how it might mess with the release of Mars’ solo work.

Commenting on the album’s possible release, he said:

“Hopefully, he gets it out, you know. The unfortunate part of it is the record label that he is signed to is owned by the manager of Mötley, Allen Kovac. So, I don’t know if all the s**t going on with Mötley is affecting the release of the record. So, I don’t know. We’ll see.”

Mars started this solo gig back in 2016 and got Corabi to help out with vocals on two songs, ‘Shake The Cage’ and ‘Gimme Blood.’ Teasers of these tracks were dropped the same year, but there hasn’t been any more news on them since then.

When asked what happened to the songs, the former Mötley vocalist said:

“To be honest with you, I don’t know ’cause it’s Mick’s solo record. He just called me and asked me to sing a couple of songs. I did it. Whether or not he uses them, that’s up to him ’cause I’m just as curious as everybody else to hear it.”

The singer also talked about the feud between Mars and his former band. About John 5 replacing the guitarist, he noted:

“I don’t wanna say anything. I love John as well. John is a great guitar player. So, I’ve just been keeping my mouth shut. All I can say is everything that’s happening right now; none of it surprises me at all. There’s always drama around those guys. Always. So, I’m like, [zipping mouth].”

Mentioning his time with the band, Corabi added:

“It was awesome being in that band but also very difficult because there was always some craziness going on all the time. It wears you out. So, all this s**t that’s going on with them right now doesn’t surprise me at all. You know, egos, greed, you know, whatever.”

The fight between Mars and Mötley Crüe is still going on without a resolution in sight, and Corabi is unsure if it ever will end. In an interview with We Go To 11, the vocalist said:

“[…] From what I can gather, Mick is pissed. I don’t know if he’s rightly pissed or wrongly pissed, but he’s pissed. And we’ll just leave it at that. That’s something that they’ll sort through and figure out. And hopefully, they can bury the hatchet. But who knows, dude?”

Currently, Mars is still working on his solo project, ‘Another Side Of Mars,’ as Mötley Crüe works on their new album and gears up for its US tour in August.
