Former Motley Crue Singer Takes High Road Over Nikki Sixx Criticism

Former Motley Crue singer John Corabi has taken the high road in responding the critical comments made by Nikki Sixx about the making of the band's self-titled album.

Sixx made news this week with the comments he made in an interview with Sweden Rock Magazine, where he said in part of the album made with Corabi, "I've gotta tell you, I think it was a very unfocused record. It was painful for me, because John Corabi can't write lyrics, and I had to do all that work.

"It was the first time I ever had to work with somebody that wanted to participate in the lyrics. And my standard is so high that it was just… It was so hard, it took months... Usually, I write a set of lyrics in an hour. "

Once Sixx's comments made headlines, Corabi posted the following response on his Facebook page: "As my email, texts, and phone is blowing up over this, I'd like to publicly retort to this. 'Thank you to Motley Crue for the 5 years we had together. I'm extremely proud of the record we recorded TOGETHER!!!!

And your phone call to me asking to join your band, has honestly helped my career immensely. I have done everything since, MY WAY, under MY TERMS, and I'm happy knowing I haven't followed any trends, caved to any record label, and just basically been myself.

"I am who I am, I write the way I write, and I'm beyond happy being the person I am...I have nothing but mad respect for Motley, including Mr. Sixx...And wish them ALL the best with their future endeavors...

"I REALLY don't give a sh*t about any of this nonsense!!!! (This is it kids... Enjoy your day!!!)'"
