John Corabi / Press

“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. I've known several people who refused to listen to the album he did with Mötley Crüe because it wasn't Vince Neil yet when I put the album on and didn't tell them who it was, they loved it! Also, there are a large number of people who won't give him a fair shot because he fronted Mötley Crüe from 1992-1997. Too bad because they're missing out on one of the best lyricists and singers in music.”

“Unplugged albums aren’t for everybody and not every artist can pull it off. In some situations it can sound really contrived and forced but someone like John Corabi, it comes very naturally and almost like second nature. I’ve always been a fan of John Corabi as a person and as a musician. As a person he comes across as humble, friendly, and an open book. As a musician, he showed all of those elements on his latest album simply titled Unplugged. For this album, Corabi stripped down to nothing but a few acoustic guitars, acoustic bass, light percussion, and some sweet as molasses harmony vocals. There is nothing pretentious or pompous about this album whatsoever. While listening to this album I feel like I’m hearing a bunch of friends sitting around in a living room, drinking some beers and having a blast. It is a very welcoming vibe and the stripped down nature of this album allows these songs to stand out even more than they would in a more amplified environment.”
