Ex-Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi recently reiterated that he has “no idea” why Nikki Sixx would describe the writing process for the band’s “Mötley Crüe” LP as a prolonged and difficult experience.
John Corabi reveals email of Nikki Sixx
When he was asked in a recent interview with Thomas S. Orwat, Jr. of Rock Interview Series why Nikki would make those comments more than two decades after the Crüe LP was released, Corabi said that he had done an interview in Brazil.
He revealed that “the interviewer asked me a question, and they said, ‘Have you read Nikki’s book ‘The Heroin Diaries’?'” he continued, referencing Sixx’s 2007 book which was supposedly taken from actual journals Sixx kept in the late ’80s while in the grip of near-fatal heroin addiction.
He had revealed that he owned the book and he bought it. During that interview, he had said that “It’s a great read.” Corabi recalled that “Now the guy, I don’t know if he was doing this to bait me or what, but the guy said, ‘Well, do you believe it all?’ And I said, ‘Whatever, dude. It doesn’t matter. It’s a great read.'”
He noted that ‘The Dirt’ was colored. He recalled that two months later, Nikki e-mailed me and he was pissed. Corabi said: “He’s, like, ‘Dude, I don’t appreciate you slagging my book.’ And I go, ‘I didn’t slag it.’ So I responded to him, and I said, ‘Okay. First of all, a couple of things. Did you read the whole interview? ‘Cause in the interview I did say, at the beginning and at the end, that it was a great read and I bought the book.’ And then I said, ‘Why do you give a f**k about anything I have to say?’ And I just hit ‘send.‘”
Corabi revealed how Sixx was fine at the end as Corabi revealed that “And then he came back and he was, like, ‘ Oh, okay, dude. Sorry. I didn’t read the whole… Okay. Great. Awesome.’ And it was cool. It was put to bed.”
