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. 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 twelve 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," Doug Fieger (lead vocalist of The Knack) on the soon-to-be pop classic "Dirty Girl," Tobias Sammett (EdGuy, Avantasia) and Eric Singer (KISS) on the fierce "I'm The Animal", Nick Simmons (son of Gene) on "Hand of the King", former Union cohort John Corabi on the moody "No Friend Of Mine," and guitar legend Steve Lukather (Toto) on the exciting instrumental "Between The Lines."
In addition to recording BK3, Kulick has been busy over the last 9 years...touring with legendary "American Band" Grand Funk Railroad (who perform over 50 concerts per year throughout the United States and Canada). Bruce has also visited Europe, Australia, South America, and Japan many times as both a solo artist and as a member of ESP (along with Eric Singer and John Corabi), produced in Los Angeles several up and coming artists, and has appeared at the Rock And Roll Fantasy Camps in Los Angeles, New York, and London.
Looking ahead to 2010, Bruce plans to take BK3 to his fans through as many avenues as possible, including live concerts, appearances at KISS Expos, and both print and online media. While there have been many milestones along the way in his 30+ years of performing and recording, BK3 marks a new pinnacle for Bruce Kulick.
"So let the journey begin..."
