So, you think it’s easy being a rockstar?

From the trouble we went through to score interview time with The Dead Daisies singer, John Corabi, we don’t pity the guy.

Between international time differences, flight delays, hotel rooms and constant travelling how do you know what day it is?

The answer is; you don’t. It’s just one big journey made up of memories and faces instead of days and appointments. Oh, and voicemails from Eddie Van Halen and Tommy Lee. “One night a few years back, right after I joined Motley Crüe, Tommy Lee had some drinks with Eddie Van Halen and they were partying in their super human way”, Corabi reminisces. “Eddie’s like ‘your singer’s awesome, he’s got a great voice’, so Tommy called me and they left me a message.”

“It’s Eddie saying ‘hi Corabi, it’s Eddie Van Halen’ and went on about the record, which was pretty cool.”

Despite living the rockstar life, The Dead Daisies remain a tightly run ship, with a schedule so unforgiving, that even the slightest change in plans throws everything out of whack. Hence, The Dead Daisies roll on as a full throttle machine on four-year long roller coaster ride along a rocky road. “They asked me to play a show in Cuba and do a few shows that were already lined up, and I’ve been in the band now for almost two years.
 Myself, David, Doug (Aldrich), Marco (Mendoza) and Brian (Tichy) want to keep it this way and keep moving forward with this line up.”

You never know what you’re going to get when you score an interview with a front man, with their interesting egos. Ticking the boxes for confidence and attention seeking, it isn’t hard for our conversation to run over time and feel like a chat with an old friend. So comfortable did Corabi feel that he revealed he’d completed the interview naked!

Still, rock and roll is serious business. What ‘business’, exactly? Selling records. The Dead Daisies wrote and recorded two full-length albums in a month each, with a doubtful Corabi reassuring himself that “if Deep Purple can record eight songs in three weeks, then we can do twelve songs in four”.
