June 28 : Kulick Brothers to collaborate On EP - Bruce Kulick interview
From :
Bruce Kulick was interviewed on "Kelly's KISS Hour" on June 28 and discussed topics such as the KISS Kruise, Eric Carr, Vinnie Vincent, Bob Ezrin, "Revenge," "Carnival Of Souls," the KISS reunion tour, Grand Funk Railroad. Kulick also discussed an EP with brother Bob Kulick and his previously reported project for Frontier Records, featuring Joe Lynn Turner, Tony Franklin and Carmine Appice.

"I think since it's really hard to do a whole record, I can say our short-term goal, which I think we can do really confidently, would be [to] maybe complete an EP worth of songs from the brothers Kulick," said Kulick. "Who knows, it could be by the end of this year that something could be released for the fans."
