Former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick reveals brother Bob Kulick’s cause of death

Back in late March 2020, the world received the shock announcement that guitarist Bob Kulick had passed away at the age of 70. However, the reason for the guitarist’s death was not known at that time.

Bob Kulick rose to notoriety as one fo the guitarists that auditioned for KISS back in 1972 and he ended up playing uncredited on the three of the five studio tracks on KISS‘ live album Alive II (1977) and the four new studio tracks on the record Killers(1982). The guitarist also played on Paul Stanley‘s KISS solo album in 1978, toured with Stanley in 1989 and played on the W.A.S.P.albums The Crimson Idol (1992) and Still Not Black Enough (1995).

The following message was posted on Bruce Kulick‘s Facebook page yesterday:

“Many of you have asked how my brother died. I didn’t have the information until a few days ago from the Las Vegas County Coroner. He passed away in his home, from natural causes due to heart disease. Sadly, I was unaware that my brother had complained to his doctor about chest pains and heart palpitations. I recently discovered this by looking at his medical papers, and I believe he was due to be treated, but the pandemic might of prevented it. For me this was a shock, as it was so sudden. I hope if you experience any pain or discomfort, please see your doctor. As much as this knowledge about his passing is closure for me and my family, he was too young to die. Thank you all for your support with his passing. I will continue to celebrate his career and share his photos and accomplishments, along with a lighter side of my brother many of you never knew.

Bob Kulick RIP 1/16/1950 – 5/28/2020″
