Motley Crue Legend Reveals Mick Mars Has Problem


Former Motley Crue frontman John Corabi recently talked about if he is “surprised” by all the “public fighting” that has been going on between Motley Crue’s founding guitarist Mick Mars and his bandmates.

Last year in October 2022, John 5 departed Rob Zombie’s band to become a part of Motley Crue as he replaced Mick Mars as the guitarist struggled with health issues.

The split seemed amicable enough until last month when Mars sued the band for his share of the profits, accusing bassist Nikki Sixx of “gaslighting” him into thinking that his mental faculties were declining and that memory loss was preventing him from playing the songs properly. Mars also added that the hair metal legends extensively used backing tracks, claiming that Nikki didn’t play live at well, something that the guitarist was opposed to.

Crue also addressed the issue with a counterstatement reiterating that the guitarist was unfit to perform and stating that there were no backing tracks involved in their performances, which led to many fans and musicians becoming divided between both parties.

John Corabi: This Is Playing Out Exactly How I Thought It Would

In a new interview with Ruben Mosqueda of We Go To 11, John Corabi, who joined the band in 1992 as the replacement for original singer Vince Neil, was asked he has been in contact with Mick Mars since the band’s founding guitarist filed a lawsuit against his bandmates a little over two months ago.

Corabi responded: “Well, we didn’t ‘talk talk’; we were corresponding via text.”

“I don’t wanna get into their business ’cause it always seems to end up as clickbait somewhere,” John continued. “But this is playing out exactly how I thought it would. And right now, 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?”
