JOHN CORABI Says ‘NIKKI SIXX Will Burn Himself Alive’ Before Asking Me To Rejoin MÖTLEY CRÜE

Corabi fronted MÖTLEY CRÜE from 1992 to 1997 as the replacement for Vince Neil.

Former MÖTLEY CRÜE singer John Corabi says that bassist and founder Nikki Sixx “will burn himself alive” before asking him to rejoin the iconic act.

Corabi fronted MÖTLEY CRÜE from 1992 to 1997 as the replacement for Vince Neil. MÖTLEY CRÜE would release one critically acclaimed full-length record with Corabi which despite critical acclaim, ended up being a commercial failure. Neil would return to the band in 1997 after the label refused to fund another CRÜE album without Vince in the front spot, leaving Corabi on his own and out of the band.

After a recent article emerged online claiming that falsely claimeed that Sixx issued an ultimatum to Vince Neil to drop the pounds for the band’s comeback tour or be fired and replaced by Corabi, John posted a statement on social media denying that he had held “secret rehearsals” with CRÜE and shooting down the possibility of him rejoining the band, saying that he was “not even remotely interested in doing that again.”

On Saturday (September 11), Corabi took part in a video interview with Adika Live! in which he once again touched upon the rumors of him reuniting with CRÜE. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I can honestly tell you that there is zero chance in hell of any part of that becoming true.

“Nikki Sixx will burn himself alive in Central Park before he picks the phone up and calls yours truly. And if he did, yours truly would just [hang the phone up].

“It’s never gonna happen. Zero chance.”

Corabi in 2016 said that he would avoid talking about MÖTLEY CRÜE in the future because he didn’t want his comments about Sixx to descend into a feud.

Corabi recently completed work on his autobiography. Titled “Horseshoes And Hand Grenades”, it was written with the help of MÖTLEY CRÜE historian/author Paul Miles, and is due on April 12, 2022 via Rare Bird Books.
