The Story of Bruce Kulick


Bruce Kulick was born in Brooklyn, New York on December 12, 1953.

Bruce's first taste of the big time was when he toured the world with Meat Loaf as part of the Bat Out of Hell touring band from 1977-78.

He formed the hard rock band Blackjack, alongside a young singer by the name of Michael Bolotin (a.k.a. Michael Bolton).
A pair of albums followed, 1979's self-titled debut and 1980's Worlds Apart, but the band broke up before achieving mainstream success.
Bruce then went on to play on Billy Squier's debut solo album, A Tale of the Tape.

Next was 1981's Great American Music by New York bar-favs The Good Rats. Then Bruce placed on Michael Bolton's self-titled '83 release.

Bruce played some session work on KISS' 1984 release, Animalize, before becoming a full-time KISS member. Bruce played on 9 Album releases and also collaborated with the originals KISS members on Psycho Circus.

Since Bruce has left KISS, he has formed the band UNION, played on many tribute albums and a few other music projects. Beginning in December 2000, Bruce will be the lead guitarist of Grand Funk Railroad for their 2000 - 2002 tour.

In 2001, he released an EP and solo album titled AUDIODOG. Initially they were only available through Kulick.net, but later in the year AUDIODOG was made available to the public through retailers across the USA.

On September 8th, 2001, Bruce had the honor to play the American National Anthem in Montreal before the Expos vs. Phillies baseball game.

In 2002, Bruce was back on the road with GFR, playing about 50+ dates. On July 3rd, Bruce was honored a second time by playing the National Anthem before a Marlins / Cubs game in Miami.
