In a recent interview with We Go To 11, John Corabi disclosed that he had contacted Mick Mars in the aftermath of his lawsuit against Mötley Crüe. The vocalist clarified that he preferred to remain neutral while claiming that Mars was upset with his old band. He stated, without going into specifics: “Well, we didn’t ‘talk talk’; we were texting.” I don’t want to be involved in their business since it always ends up as clickbait someplace. But everything is going just how I expected. And, from what I can see, Mick is irritated right now.
I’m not sure if he’s rightfully or unfairly pissed, but he’s pissed. And that’s all there is to it. That is something they will investigate and determine. And, ideally, they will be able to bury the hatchet. But, guy, who knows?” Corabi publicly indicated following the guitarist’s resignation from Mötley Crüe that his departure could be due to the band’s unhappiness with his performance. After receiving backlash for his words, he addressed the issue in an early June interview with Sofa King Cool Magazine.
To emphasize his wish to remain neutral in the conflict, the vocalist stated the reasoning behind his early prediction regarding the breakup between Mars and the band. Then he went on to declare that the scenario had come as no surprise to him, saying: “So, to me, this was just something that had to happen.” It’s unfortunate, but it had to happen. So… that’s life [laughs].” Meanwhile, TMZ has revealed some new details about the continuing court battle. Mötley Crüe reportedly asked the judge to treat the matter in private rather than public, and to dismiss Mars’ claims of substance misuse and physical assault as ‘for purposes of character assassination.’
