(Formerly of KISS)
Bruce Kulick, who first gained notoriety as a member of Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell touring band, may be best known for his twelve years (1984-1996) as lead guitarist of KISS,
...during which time he appeared on nine gold, two platinum and one multi-platinum KISS albums, including Animalize, Asylum, and Revenge. It is, however, the wealth of experience he has gained in his 13 post-KISS years that shines through on BK3.
The album takes listeners for quite a ride over its eleven songs...from the frenetic and anger-fuelled "Fate" (co-written by Kevin Churko, known for his work with Ozzy Osbourne) to the philosophical and uplifting "Life." Never one to mind sharing the spotlight with other talented musicians, Kulick invited several guest artists to appear on BK3, including Gene Simmons of KISS on the anthemic "Ain't Gonna Die," the late Doug Fieger (The Knack) on the soon-to-be pop classic "Dirty Girl," Nick Simmons (son of Gene) on "Hand of the King", former Union cohort John Corabi on the moody "No Friend Of Mine," Tobias Sammet (EdGuy, Avantasia) and Eric Singer (KISS) on the fierce "I'm The Animal", and guitar legend Steve Lukather (Toto) on the exciting instrumental "Between The Lines."
“Great to hear one of the unsung heroes of KISS stepping out with a bold musical statement of his own” says Eddie Trunk of VH1’s “That Metal Show,” while Classic Rock magazine calls BK3 “quite a force” and “a well-crafted effort that shows Kulick living up to his full potential as a solo artist. The magazine also named Kulick one of their “top six to watch for in 2010.”
