Former Mötley Crüe Singer John Corabi’s Autobiography Release Info!

September 10, 2021

Former Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi was recently a guest of Detroit’s WRIF and revealed that his autobiography, “Horseshoes And Hand Grenades”, is completed and will be out via Rare Bird Books on April 12, 2022. 


Corabi says, “It goes all the way back to, obviously, me being born, but it talks about my parents. My grandparents were first-generation Italians from the Calabria section of Italy. My mother’s side of the family, I talk about them. It talks about me being born, my childhood being very kind of ‘Wonder Years’ — whatever — and then just it completely derailing and falling apart. And it goes into everything. There’s a lot of things that fans don’t know about me — some of my marriages. It talks about, again, my youth, childhood. I dive into the Uncle Jack stories.

Corabi continues, “Basically, the book is really kind of a testament to [the fact that] I knew at a very young age that I wanted to do what I’m doing for a living. Now, has it panned out the way that the magazines, the articles — you know, Learjets, limousines and all that other stuff? Probably not. But I’m still pushing forward, still trying to find my slice of the pie. But it’s really kind of a testament to perseverance. And it goes right from the time I took my first breath to maybe a year ago.”

Corabi was in Mötley Crüe from ’92 – ’96 and recorded one album with the band. Arguably their best, musically. When Vince Neil returned to the band in ’97, Corabi formed UNION with ex-KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick.

And I’m sure you’ll read all about that in his forthcoming book. Can’t wait!

What’s your favourite autobiography? ‘Red’ Sammy Hagar and ‘Life’ Keith Richards immediately come to mind. And of course ‘The Dirt’ Mötley Crüe.
