BRUCE KULICK GEARS UP TO RELEASE BK3 ON FEBRUARY 2ND
December 9, 2009
Guests on the album include members from KISS, Motley Crue and more
If you ever play Six Degrees of Bruce Kulick, the former KISS/current Grand Funk Railroad guitarist’s resume will keep you happily busy for hours. Cherished by artists as diverse as Meat Loaf and Kanye West, the veteran axeman’s boundless creative energy permeates his third solo LP, BK3. In the works for nearly six years and produced by Jerry Rubulino, BK3 delivers explosive hard rock arrangements and addictive pop melodies that honor both Kulick’s singular past and bright future. And then there’s the jaw-dropping guest list, boasting members of KISS, the Knack, Toto, Motley Crue and more.
After getting his solo feet wet with 2001’s Audio Dog and 2003’s Transformer, Kulick–the often unheralded driving force on 12 years of classic KISS records, from 1984’s Animalize to 1992’s Revenge–assembled his own rock ‘n’ roll dream team. The roster: KISS icon Gene Simmons and up-and-coming son Nick, longtime friend John Corabi (Motley Crue, Kulick’s own Union), Knack mainman Doug Fieger, Toto axe authoritarian Steve Lukather, Edguy power metal stalwart Tobias Sammet and even current KISS drummer Eric Singer.
“Many albums lack cohesion with different vocalists, but I know that my guitar playing is the glue on BK3,” Kulick says. “There was the clear goal of making absolutely the best record that I could put together. I feel like this is my Revenge.”
BK3 will be released February 2nd on Fanboy/Rocket Science Ventures
