A just-shared snippet of music gives fans their first taste of a new project by Motley Crue‘s Mick Mars and John Corabi. It’s not much more than a half a minute in length, but the entire sample is available above.
Corabi, who took over for Vince Neil on Motley Crue’s self-titled 1994 album, confirmed this exciting collaboration was taking place about a year ago. Mars promised fans a taste of the new project earlier today.
During his time in Motley Crue, Corabi has said he felt particularly close to Mars, which he credited to the fact that they were both guitar players. After Neil’s return, Corabi was part of Union with former Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick; he also worked with Ratt and offshoot bands like Twenty 4 Seven and Angel City Outlaws.
This new music arrives about a month and a half after Mars played his last show with Motley Crue, who concluded their Final Tour on New Year’s Eve at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Corabi, on the other hand, memorably presented a solo tour of music from Motley Crue.
With everyone suddenly freed up, a slew of solo work is now on tap from Motley Crue’s former members. Neil has returned to headlining his own shows, while Nikki Sixx‘s band Sixx:A.M. are at work on a new album slated for release this year.
For his part, Corabi said the collaboration with Mars was producing “greasy LOUD ASS, slamming music.” See if you agree.
