Former MÖTLEY CRÜE frontman John Corabi has begun work on his autobiography, tentatively due next summer.
The book, which is being co-written with biographer Jake Brown, will offer a candid account of Corabi's life story, including his stints in THE SCREAM, MÖTLEY CRÜE, UNION, RATT, and the BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION, and will include interviews with family members, former bandmates from MÖTLEY CRÜE and other groups, as well as fellow rock and metal contemporaries.
