THE DEAD DAISIES just made another lineup shift, and this one is a welcome return to form: John Corabi, who departed the band in 2019, has returned to the fold.
The former Mötley Crüe, the Scream and Union vocalist, who sang on 2013’s Revolución, 2016’s Make Some Noise and 2018’s Burn It Down before being replaced by Deep Purple great Glenn Hughes (who also took over on bass for the departed Marco Mendoza), appears to be back with the band, which is currently rounded out by founding guitarist David Lowy, lead guitarist Doug Aldrich and drummer Brian Tichy.
The news was hinted at by the band in a new social media video, which shows Corabi, along with another new addition, former Whitesnake bassist Michael Devin, rehearsing with the band. The video appears alongside the caption: “As it was, then again it will be… the circus continues…”
While the two new members are not mentioned by name in the video, a follower named Jen Morrin commented on the band’s Facebook page: “Michael Devin and John Corabi. I can’t, I’ve lost my mind – this is the best day EVER!”
To which the Dead Daisies replied: “Jen Morrin These guys are so ready to rock for you so it’s great that you’re ready to join them for some rock n roll fun.”
Corabi was rumored to be in the conversation to rejoin MOTLEY CRUE once again, but due to Mick Mars outing the band’s deceptive practices with his epic lawsuit, it put Corabi in a bad spot, as being involved in the potential ousting of Neil, who is beloved by Crue fans.
