John Corabi Considered Suicide After Motley Crue Firing
Former Motley Crue singer John Corabi contemplated suicide when he was cut from the band and dumped by his girlfriend on the same day.
Corabi replaced Vince Neil after the frontman's departure in 1992, but was kicked out in 1997 to make way for the singer's return.
The musician learned he was no longer a member of the rock band when he showed up for a recording session and interrupted a meeting between his bandmates and label representatives.
Corabi admits he was so shocked by his dismissal, he left the building, took a gun out of the glovebox of his car and put it in his mouth.
