It was reported yesterday that Nikki Sixx had some not-so-nice things to say about John Corabi and the song writing process of Mötley Crüe’s 1994 Self-Titled album, calling it somewhat “unfocused” and a bit of a “painful” process. According to Blabbermouth, Corabi has said in response that he is “extremely proud” of the record and insisting that he has “nothing but mad respect” for his former bandmates.
Corabi took to Facebook to respond to Sixx’s comments: “Thank you to Mötley Crüe for the five years we had together. I’m extremely proud of the record we recorded TOGETHER!!!! And your phone call to me asking to join your band has honestly helped my career immensely. I have done everything since, MY WAY, under MY TERMS, and I’m happy knowing I haven’t followed any trends, caved to any record label, and just basically been myself. I am who I am, I write the way I write, and I’m beyond happy being the person I am… I have nothing but mad respect for Mötley, including Mr. Sixx… And wish them ALL the best with their future endeavors…”
He added: “I REALLY don’t give a shit about any of this nonsense!!!! (This is it, kids… Enjoy your day!!!)”
Corabi is now the frontman of The Dead Daisies.
