Motley Crue Firing Almost Led Singer To Suicide

Former Motley Crue singer John Corabi told a concert audience how his firing from the band led him to consider suicide.

Corabi was an acoustic tour and told fans at a London concert the story, according to a transcription by Ultimate Classic Rock. He said that when he went to what he believed was a recording session he was informed "We love you. But unfortunately the record company are not going to support this version of the band. We have to let you go because we're bringing Vince [Neil] back."

He also shared his reaction to the firing. "I went out and I got into the brand new sports car I had just bought, like, four weeks before," he continued. "I opened up the glove box, I pulled the gun out, and I stuck it in my mouth. But I didn't load it so that was okay."

He was then dealt another blow. You can watch video of him telling the story here.
