After a huge response to last week’s part 1, we’re back to pick up our talk with John Corabi about the 1994 self-titled Motley Crue album.
We pick up Albums Unleashed – Motley Crue with John Corabi part 2 with a discussion of Hooligan’s Holiday. From there John guides us through the creative process for each song on the album; highlighting the motives for the lyrics as well as some surprising revelations about the origin of some of the music on the album and a great story about Glenn Hughes’ involvement in the recording for Misunderstood.
Other topics touched on in this long-form discussion include
the much-talked-about MTV interview that strained the network’s relationship with the band, the possibility of the band changing their name during the making of the album, one song that was re-written for the album five times and another that was almost torpedoed by record company politics; leading to a fight from the band for its inclusion. All of that and A LOT more!
