The first thing people remember when they hear the name John Corabi is his stint in Mötley Crüe in the mid nineties. He told me himself about how many people come up to him and ask him about what he has been up to since leaving Mötley. Well the real fans know he was in Union with Bruce Kulick. After that he played guitar in Ratt for over a period of eight years. John recently released a solo album entitled simply Unplugged and recently opened a bunch of solo shows for Cinderella frontman Tom Keifer. Let’s see what he has to say as he is never one lost for words.

Also a friendly reminder that John will be live at Braun’s Concert Cove on July 24th as part of the Mike Tramp Extravaganza. Click here for more info. Continue reading
