In the world of rock music, certain collaborations and reunions hold a special place in the hearts of fans. The recent news of John Corabi’s return to The Dead Daisies has sparked excitement and anticipation among rock enthusiasts worldwide. Corabi, known for his time as the vocalist of Mötley Crüe, fronted The Dead Daisies from 2015 to 2019, during which the band experienced significant success. Many consider Corabi’s tenure with the rock supergroup to be their strongest period, and his reentry into the fold has generated considerable buzz and curiosity.

Corabi’s impact on The Dead Daisies cannot be understated. His contributions during his initial run with the band produced remarkable results, garnering appreciation from both critics and fans alike. It is worth noting that Corabi’s association with Mötley Crüe’s eponymous 1994 album, despite being commercially unsuccessful at the time, has now achieved cult status and gained widespread acclaim. With upcoming tour dates on the horizon for The Dead Daisies, along with the possibility of new music, Corabi finds himself content observing the unfolding events. In the midst of Mötley Crüe’s public dispute with former guitarist Mick Mars and persistent allegations of lip-syncing, Corabi has chosen to embrace a more relaxed perspective while eagerly awaiting the band’s future endeavors.

In a recent interview with Blabbermouth.net, Corabi shed light on his decision to rejoin The Dead Daisies and the circumstances leading up to it as well as speaking very deeply on the nature of auto-tune and backing tracks at modern shows.

In the interview, he was asked what he felt about the use of auto-tune to which John declared that he truly didn’t care if it was used or not, and in fact, he said he only focuses on himself and his performances, which, he will do until he gets right rather than auto-tune anything.

When asked if he would eventually use auto-tune John had the following to say.

John: “I hope not. I don’t want to do it. At this point in my career, I haven’t had to. I hope I can continue. The guys I look up to: Steve Marriott [SMALL FACES / HUMBLE PIE], Paul Rodgers [FREE / BAD COMPANY] and Robert Plant [LED ZEPPELIN] is a prime example. He can’t sing ‘Black Dog’ anymore, so he writes new shit and has reinvented himself so he can still go out at 77 years old and still walk onstage and people are glad to see him. That’s who I want to be.”

It is refreshing to witness an artist like John Corabi who remains unfazed by the choices made by other musicians, acknowledging that each performer has their own prerogative. He espouses a philosophy of staying true to oneself and not getting entangled in unnecessary controversies or judgments. This grounded approach has contributed to his longevity and relevance in the rock
