The Dead Daisies John Corabi Is Australia’s Highest Charting Motley Crue Singer

The Dead Daisies singer John Corabi fronted the highest charting Motley Crue album in Australia.

Corabi was lead singer for Motley Crue from 1994 to 1996 during Vince Neil’s absence and sang for the 1994 self-titled album. While the album was considered a failure in the USA, it was Motley Crue’s highest charting album in Australia.

“I had no idea that,” Corabi told Noise11.com. “All I knew that in America that everybody was looking at me like “who are you” and “what’s happened with the band’.

The ‘Motley Crue’ album with Corabi’s lead vocal reached no 3 in Australia. The ‘Dr Feelgood’ album peaked at no 7 in Australia. The only other Motley Crue album to reach Top 10 in Australia was the compilation ‘Decade of Decadence’ at no 10 in 1991. “That’s weird. I just thought they were huge everywhere,” John said. “I just thought that record wise sales and sales wise, well, I know what their ‘Feelgood’ thing did. It was over the top. They sold millions and millions”.

‘Hooligan’s Holiday’, the single from John’s Crue album reached no 66 on the Australia singles chart. However, John won’t be doing it live with The Dead Daisies. “We are kind of keeping it separate. We aren’t doing anyone’s material. We only do Daisies stuff,” he said. “In America I have solo band and we play the Motley 94 material and its been going over pretty well. Hopefully we can come to Australia and do some shows.”

John Corabi is Noise11.com’s special guest this week on Noise11’s iHeartRadio Music News channel.

The Dead Daisies second album ‘Revolucion’ is out now.
