July 29  : Two  Peter Criss interviews can be viewed online
From:  EddieTrunk.com
Have an interview with PETER CRISS currently airing on MSG Network in NY. Lot's of response to my interview with Peter in where I asked him if he would like one last show with KISS, with the original band, to provide in his eyes the proper closure on the original band. Peter answered he would, but only if everything was a fair 25% equal share for everyone. Like I always say folks, it's called the music BUSINESS! I'm sure you can see the entire conversation on YouTube and the MSG site. Peter's new CD is not a rock record, but he did tell me he has one coming next.

July 24  : Bruce Kulick Studio blog update.
From: www.kulick.net
At the Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp a few years back I worked with Doug Fieger who is the singer of The Knack. You all know "My Sharona" of course, what an amazing song, and my friendship with Doug led me to ask him to sing one of my songs for the new BK3 disc. He was excited about it, and after a meeting at his house to listen to the demo, he said a big YES. The song is called "It's Never Enough" about a woman who is not aware she could have it all, but instead is just difficult with everyone, and just caught up with herself. So a kind of love song, but a frustrating one. Doug sang it yesterday in only an hour as he is quick at the mic, and we took a few pix before he took off. He still performs with The Knack and will be touring in August in Australia. I was glad to grab him as our schedules always were hard to coordinate.

After a great day with Doug Fieger from The Knack singing on my disc, it was time for guitars again. But first Thomas Ian Nicolas, the actor who has been working on a CD that I have played and co-wrote songs on, needed some finishing touches on the last song to be cut. (Check out his MySpace page). Of course as I had all my stuff ready to go, we did the session at "Shut Up And Play". Brian Virtue, who has done some engineering for my disc and will mix my music, was engineering and co-producing along with Jeremy for Thomas's disc. Thomas's disc will be mastered about a week from now. So I will get you all news on his work when it is ready. I am really proud of him, and excited I have co-writes along with the session work on his new disc.

I jumped into a song called "What Love's About". This has many textures to capture guitar wise, and first up was working on the main rhythm parts.

First up was for Day 12 of BK3 was working on a song that is really special to me called "Life". The ending of "Life" has a great celebration that will really be exciting once everything is overdubbed, but now it was time for just some simple rhythm parts. 

We finished off the day with some guitars on the song called "If I Could Show You". This song already has a sweet piano track on it that Jeremy played after we cut the drums for it back in December!

Audio samples of all 12 tracks that are set to appear on original KISS drummer Peter Criss' new solo CD, "One for All", have been posted on Amazon.com.

He was also joined by longtime friends and acclaimed musicians — bandleader Paul Shaffer and bassist Will Lee, as well as guitarist Mike McLaughlin.

July 13  : Bruce Kulick Studio blog update.
From: www.kulick.net
We picked up where I left off on that song "What Did I Say" by finishing off some harmony lines and then doubling the main riff. The hardest part was finding the right guitar for the job. We settled on the ES 345 SV, which stands for Stereo Varitone. I have a special cable to make it mono. We didn't get fancy with it; it was the proper guitar for the double of the Les Paul. Next up were some harmony lines and we chose the SG Reissue from Gibson, that really has it own ripping sound. We switched to the Marshall set up for that.

July 8  : Bruce Kulick Studio blog update.
From: www.kulick.net
Well after nearly two weeks on the road ALL over the US it was time to do some recording again for BK3. Back to "Shut Up And Play" in the valley, and it was ready for a song referred to as The London Song. NOT the final title, but when I wrote it the tune had an image in my mind of people singing it in the streets of the UK! Really called "What Did I Say", at least for now.

July 6  : The return of Bob Kulick's BALANCE
From: Frontier Records
Shaking off the cobwebs of a 25 year slumber, Balance, the iconic legendary 80's band who released such AOR masterpieces as In For The Count and the self titled debut, resurfaces with a vengeance.
Grammy Award winning producer / guitarist Bob Kulick whose credits read like a who's who of Hard Rock and Metal music (Kiss, Motorhead, Wasp, Alice Cooper etc) again joins forces with one of the greatest singers of the AOR genre, former Blues Magoos, Barnaby Bye, Wiggy Bits, vocalist/ musician Peppy Castro and the other Grammy Award winning keyboardist/vocalist Doug Katsaros who has made a major mark in every musical genre, from playing with Dee Snider and Paul Stanley to working with Elton John, Rod Stewart and even on Broadway musicals.
These super talents announce the return of Balance with a 12 song CD of ALL new material to be released on Frontiers Records in the coming months.
“It's my second childhood. I get to relive the glory of Balance from a more relaxed perspective” says Castro, and Katsaros feels the same: “To me it feels much more relaxed, we can simply make cool music, without the concerns normally associated with making a record - we are all at such a high plateau in our current situations, I actually think it allows us to be more at ease, less stressed, and the music reflects that."
“After the demise/breakup of the band in 1983”, says Kulick, “I toured the world as a lead guitarist with various artists (Meatloaf, Paul Stanley etc.) and everywhere I'd go I'd get great comments from fans and press alike, saying how they dug Balance and its music.. .it always amazed me. I can't wait for those fanatics to be satiated at last by our new CD.”
“We have a very healthy attitude” segues Castro, “The music breathes and we've been able to connect very well with each other. The great thing is that we are all such productive people. So there will be an abundance of material and we will edit our selves down to the best of the bunch and that will be the record.”
Recording of the yet untitled new album has commenced in Los Angeles and NY and the band are well into it now.
“Anyone who is or was ever a fan will not be disappointed, in fact, there may finally be an international hit amongst the tunes on this new outing - we have all matured, and what's coming out is simply fantastic! Like the best of both of our earlier records. After all nobody sings better than Peppy, nobody rocks better than Bob, and who better in America to toss around some fat synth patches than me?” concludes Katsaros.
Further info will be released in the coming weeks.
