Hard Rock Heavyweight John Corabi Wants to Bring You Dead Flowers

Written By: Bob Ruggiero Via Houston Press

Singer and guitarist John Corabi has been in some bands. A lot of bands. Ratt, Brides of Destruction, ESP, Union, Angel City Outlaws, Twenty 4 Seven, and the Cardboard Vampyres. He most famously replaced lead vocalist Vince Neil in Mötley Crüe for a number of years in the early ‘90s.

But it was while on tour just prior to joining the Crüe with his band the Scream that he says he first came face to face with his two takeaways about the state of Texas. And both were daunting.

“I remember being in a van with all the guys and our manager and the crew and just driving along on I-10 going ‘Jesus Christ! How big is this fucking state! And it’s hotter than shit here!” Corabi laughs. “And all the signs said ‘Don’t mess with Texas.’ There’s something scary about that, but something beautiful as well. I love Texas!”
