Former Motley Crue singer John Corabi doesn’t want his recent comments about Nikki Sixx to descend into a feud – and to make sure it doesn’t happen, he’s going to avoid talking about the band in future.

Bassist Sixx said in April that the 1994 self-titled album recorded while Corabi was with the band had been a “painful” experience, and added that he hadn’t been impressed by the vocalist’s creative contribution.

Corabi initially stated that he “didn’t give a shit” about his ex-colleague’s quotes. Earlier this week, when asked again, he replied: “I have no idea why Nikki feels that I’m the biggest piece of shit to roam the Earth.”

Now Corabi has said via Facebook: “I officially have nothing to say about any member of Motley Crue ever again!

“I was asked a question about why Nikki dogged the Motley record and I said I have no idea why… blah, blah, blah. This isn’t news kids!

“I don’t really care. Never did, never will. Motley has retired. Motley is Nikki, Tommy, Mick and Vince. And it’s been that way since 1997, as it should be.”

Adding that he’s “not backing this bullshit stirring that is happening to start a feud,” Corabi finishes: “If you want to know about the Crue, ask the Crue!”

He’s gearing up to tour Europe and North America with the Dead Daisies, before releasing a solo live album later in the year.
