R.I.P. Bob Kulick (January 16, 1950 - May 28, 2020)

From :
Legendary guitarist and record producer Bob Kulick has died at the age of 70.
His passing was confirmed by his brother, former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick.

Earlier today, Bruce posted the following message on social media: "I am heartbroken to have to share the news of the passing of my brother Bob Kulick. His love of music, and his talent as a musician and producer should always be celebrated. I know he is at peace now, with my parents, playing his guitar as loud as possible. Please respect the Kulick Family's privacy during this very sad time."

Throughout his 40-plus-year music career, Bob Kulick has worked with an astonishing array of artists: from Meat Loaf to Motörhead; from KISS to Michael Bolton; W.A.S.P. to Diana Ross; as well as legends such as Roger Daltrey, Alice Cooper, Lou Reed and Paul Stanley's 1978 solo LP and 1989 tour.

Bob began his musical profession at 16 — when most high schoolers are still trying to figure out where they're going in life — appearing on the 1966 album "Winchester Cathedral" from the RANDOM BLUES BAND, the "baby band" that Bob played in that played The Café Wha in New York's Greenwich Village alongside Jimmy James and the BLUE FLAMES (later rechristened Jimi Hendrix).

1973 saw Kulick make the connection that he has been associated the most with throughout his career. He auditioned for — and got passed over by — KISS. Instead of being dejected, the six-stringer aligned himself with the band over the years, playing on the studio material on "Kiss Alive II", providing solos on the "Killers" album, co-writing "Naked City" from "Unmasked" and guesting on Paul Stanley's 1979 solo album and tour a decade later. He even suggested his brother to the band.

Last month, Bruce admitted in an interview that his relationship with Bob was "not healthy." Bruce spoke about his estranged older brother five months after Bob made a public post on his personal Facebook page as as well as on his Instagram accusing Bruce of contributory "copyright infringement" over the sale of "Kulick Brothers" merchandise items, including a signed photo. According to Bob, the items were being made available via Kiss Army Merchandise with permission from Bruce only. Bob went on to say that Bruce "has a restraining order" against him, but didn't offer any more details about the circumstances that led to the order being issued.

During 2017's "Kiss Kruise VII", the Kulick brothers played a 13-song set that featured 10 rarely performed KISS songs such as "Turn On The Night" and "All American Man", as well as three classics from Paul Stanley's 1978 solo album (on which Bob performed). That same year, Bob released a solo album, "Skeletons In The Closet".

May 29 : Paul Stanley's SOUL STATION "Ooo Baby Baby" video
From : Paul Stanley
These are challenging times. Long before I ever heard the great British bands, I grew up listening to Philly Soul, Motown and so much more. I was lucky to see Otis Redding and Solomon Burke among others. That music and its storytelling gave me strength and hope even in some tough days. The great classics of that era are magical medicine for most and I felt myself drawn back to that era for some sorcery I think we could all use. While it’s hard to connect physically, some of Soul Station decided to reach out and make a virtual and emotional connection on a great Motown and Smokey Robinson classic, Ooo Baby Baby. Hope you enjoy! - Paul Stanley

May 15 : Whitesnake's Joel Hoekstra, Kiss’s Bruce Kulick, Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser and more jam The POLICE's 'Synchronicity II' for COVID-19 relief
From :
We’re always happy to watch a new quarantine jam video, especially when it’s for a good cause. The latest in that category is Guitars Against COVID-19, the brainchild of electric guitar player Gabe Treiyer, who has performed with Gene Loves Jezebel and Toto vocalist Bobby Kimball, among others.

Together with with fellow guitarist David Palau, bassist Pablo Motyczak and drummer Gary O’Toole, Trieyer lays down a cover of the Police’s 1983 song, "Synchronicity II".

Helping out the quartet is a host of rock shredders, including Monte Pittman (Madonna, Prong), Bruce Kulick (Kiss, Grand Funk Railroad), Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser and, turning in a characteristically insane solo, Whitesnake’s Joel Hoesktra.

What’s more, the jam serves as a fundraiser for the Red Cross.

Watch first video from Chris Jericho's KISS cover band KUARANTINE

From :
FOZZY singer
Chris Jericho has joined forces with TRIXTER bassist P.J. Farley, guitarist Joe McGinness and drummer Kent Slucher to form a 1980s KISS cover band called KUARANTINE. The band's debut video, for the song "No, No, No", which originally appeared on KISS's 1987 album "Crazy Nights", can be seen below.

Jericho said in a statement: "When Kent & Joe approached me to sing on a few 80s KISS songs, I jumped at the chance, as it's my favorite era of my favorite band. Once we brought in PJ, not only did we have a world-class band with years of touring experience, we also had four guys with one common bond: to stay creative and to do something special for all music fans during this pandemic. 'No, No, No' is the perfect debut release for
KUARANTINE, as not only is it a crushing, FUN rock n roll tune, but it's guaranteed to satisfy and put a smile on your face...whether you want one or not!"

In addition to his world-renowned wrestling career, first with World Wrestling Entertainment and now with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), Jericho is the lead singer of the internationally successful rock band FOZZY, which will release its new album this fall.

To connect with all those fans who are quarantined and staying safe at home during the pandemic, Jericho recently launched "Saturday Night Special". Every Saturday night, Chris has been going live on his
facebook and YouTube to chat with over 150,000 fans each week and answer questions, tell stories and even sing songs. The shows have also featured chats with special guests including Kevin Smith, FOZZY and Hurricane Helms. This Saturday, May 16 starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, tune in to watch Chris and his KUARANTINE bandmates Kent, Joe and P.J., along with special guest Bruce Kulick, former KISS guitarist, discuss their new project.

For KUARANTINE, Jericho has surrounded himself with a group of top-notch touring musicians. Kent Slucher has been the powerhouse behind the kit at Luke Bryan's shows for the past 12 years, from small clubs to headlining stadiums and amphitheaters. Joe McGinness is a rising country singer/guitarist, who has shared the stage with artists such as OLD DOMINION, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE and GRANGER SMITH, and is also a member of
KLASSIK '78, a digital tribute to '70s KISS. Bassist P.J. Farley rose to fame in the New Jersey-based gold-selling rock band TRIXTER, which toured with KISS, POISON, SCORPIONS and more in the '90s and has released two albums since reuniting in 2008.

KUARANTINE has emerged to entertain listeners with their versions of KISS rarities and some good ol' fashioned rock music during these unparalleled times. Look for more from KUARANTINE to follow soon.
