Bob Kulick considers Graham Bonnet and David Glen Eisley to be the two greatest singers he’s ever heard
In a soon to be posted interview by Ruben Mosqueda for Sleaze Roxx, guitarist Bob Kulick was asked about his time in the bands Blackthorne and Skull to which he indicated:
“Yeah, as I mentioned, Jimmy Waldo is a friend and this fills the gap of me meeting Dave. Jimmy, as you know, had worked with Graham [Bonnet] in Alcatrazz. He was living in Australia at the time. We asked him if he was interested in forming a band with Jimmy and I. We added Frankie Banali and Chuck Wright even though they seemed to be playing with everybody at the time. We were a band of session musicians. I had played on a ton of records as a sessions guy. I tried to do a band. I tried Skull that failed. [I] tried Blackthorne and I found a guy that could sing!
The only other guy that can sing as good as Graham, is the other guy you’re talking to right now — David Glen Eisley. I’m so blessed to be working with the two greatest singers that I have ever heard. I just recorded two songs with Graham Bonnet for a new Alcatrazz record. We also have the multi-tracks for the record Afterlife. We’re going to remix them and re-edit them and who knows? That might wind up in 30 movies! I turned on the TV last night and the first thing I heard come out of it was “You’re destined for the afterlife!” I was like, “Where’s the song?” [Laughs] I have the song right now! So when Blackthorne failed miserably, that’s when I found Dave. Graham does the tune down a step. The guy is 70 years old and he still sings it without tuning down a step! Who does that?”
