John Corabi Talks Dead Daisies Show in Vineland, Mötley Crüe, and His Idea for a New Television Show (1071 The Boss Interview)
Former Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi certainly lived the rock and roll lifestyle touring with the Crüe , Ratt and The Dead Daisies, who are heading out on tour for the “Resurrected Tour” which includes a stop at The Landis Theater in Vineland on August 23.
Yet, he has an idea for a television show that will dispel the myth that rockers come to town and trash the place. At the moment, Corabi signed a production deal for a television show, “Angels in Outlaws,” that will show rockers coming to the rescue on motorcycles to help small towns in need of assistance.
“I had this idea that I wanted to do something cool like a TV show but I didn’t want to do a reality thing,” Carobi tells 1071 The Boss midday host Michele Amabile of the idea that he is planning to pitch at a later date involving motorcycles (a concept that could certainly use a cameo from Afternoon drive host and motorcycle man, Van Dusen).
“I got a bunch of my gnarly looking, long haired tattooed pierced crazy looking musician friends together. Everybody rides motorcycles and the concept is we ride into this little towns…like a motorcycle gang,” he said. “But at the end of the day….what we do is ride into towns on these motorcycles and we help people out who need help.”
Corabi will be riding into New Jersey for a show at The Landis in support of the double record “The Decade of Rock: The Dead Daisies Best of” featuring the incarnations of the band that includes songs fronted by Corabi, Deep Purple alum Glenn Hughes, and INX vocalist Jon Stevens. The band has toured all over the world playing festivals and opening for huge bands, including KISS, Guns N‘ Roses, Scorpions, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Bad Company, Whitesnake, ZZ Top, Foreigner, Judas Priest and the Hollywood Vampires. Carabi also talks about his time in Mötley Crüe, and his feelings on being an “asterisk.”
“I am very blessed to be given the opportunity to do that. I’m proud of the music that we did,” Corabi said. “They only had two singers, me and Vince Neil. To some degree, it has helped give me some longevity in my career.”
That said, Corabi is happy “not dealing with any of the drama going on with them right now.”
The new album is available August 18th on double-CD and vinyl. Pre-order now at TheDeadDaisies.com. Tickets are available at The Landis Theater, located at 830 E. Landis Ave., Vineland.
