Reviews of Unplugged by John Corabi

Didn't know this guy until he opened up for a Cinderella concert. It was acoustic but BLEW ME AWAY! Bought his CD there immediately (which he graciously signed for me...he's very approachable) then bought this one later on Amazon. He puts on a GREAT show if you ever have a chance to see him. You won't be disappointed. Great entertainer, very friendly, great rockin tunes, share funny stories behind his lyrics & a phenomenal voice. When you leave you feel like you've been hanging out with a new really cool friend (who happens to sing really good ;0).

John Corabi - 'Unplugged' Review

A truly marvellous, heart-felt, magnificently recorded acoustic album.

John Corabi’s claim to fame arrived when he was hired to join Mötley Crüe, replacing singer Vince Neil from 1992 to 1997. During his tenancy with them, the band released their superb self-titled album in 1994, an album that for many has been the best the American group ever recorded, yet one that with the grunge scene exploding, wasn’t commercially as successful as the previous material and forced the band to bring Neil back to their ranks. Other ventures from Corabi include Union, The Scream, ESP, Brides Of Destruction, Lost Angels and Ratt. However, in his 20-plus-year career, he had never released a solo album. Until now!

John Corabi Unplugged Review

Hard rock vocalist John Corabi has released his first solo recording, an acoustic collection of new songs and classics from his former bands. Corabi treats listeners to three songs originally recorded by The Scream (“Father, Mother, Son,” “Man In The Moon,” “I Never Loved Her Anyway”), two Mötley Crüe songs (“Hooligan’s Holiday,” “Loveshine”), and two Union tracks (“Love (I Don’t Need It Anymore),” “Everything’s Alright”) in addition to five new compositions.

John Corabi talks about his current band line up, new album, and touring

I talked to John Corabi a year or so ago and he was still in the stages of recording his next album but had mentioned that it was going very well and would be an unplugged album representing all phases of his career. Since then, John has toured the world, finished that album and released it to overwhelmingly positive reviews. It’s no wonder why as the album retains a lot of the loose and fun elements of his shows. In other words, it’s a studio acoustic album which amazingly captures all the spontaneity which has made Crabby such a confident and capable live performer for over three decades. John can talk and talk about pretty much any subject and we did just that! We also took a few questions from readers of LRI and the Motley Crue Shout Forum as well….

Q & A John Corabi

I've got to admit that I've been smitten with John Corabi's voice and songwriting for many years now. I'm one of those guys who has been buying the CDs he's been signing and playing on. From bands like The Scream, Twenty 4 Seven, Mötley Crüe and Union, to his more recent exploits as a solo artist. I suspect he slips below a lot of people's radar when it comes to Rock music, so since his arrival home from touring in promotion of his acoustic album "Unplugged" I was most fortunate enough to grab the crab for some straight forward Q&As..

John Corabi "Unplugged" Review

The long awaited solo debut from former The Scream, Mötley Crüe and Union frontman, John Corabi, has FINALLY arrived and while it is a departure from what you would expect as a debut solo album, it does not disappoint.  The fact that John has issued an acoustic album is not a shock to anyone who has followed his career but to issue an acoustic album as your debut solo effort is a ballsy move in my opinion.  That being said, John is one of a few artists that could pull off such a feat after the career fronting the bands that he has.
