RIP … Bob Kulick dead at 70

RIP … Bob Kulick dead at 70

The veteran studio musician, who released his first-ever solo record in 2018, auditioned to be KISS' guitarist in 1973, but lost out to original band member Ace Frehley.

In 2017, Bob and Bruce Kulick performed live together on the self-explanatory KISS Kruise. "His love of music, and his talent as a musician and producer should always be celebrated", Bruce's tweet, shared on Friday, May 29, read. Please respect the Kulick Household's privateness throughout this unhappy time.

The rock band's official Twitter also reposted Kulick's brother's note, adding, "We are heartbroken". However, in a statement following Bob's death, Bruce spoke kindly about his brother: "I know he is at peace now, with my parents, playing his guitar as loud as possible". He also worked on Kiss singer Paul Stanley's 1978 solo album.

Sons Of Apollo keyboardist Derek Sherinian wrote on Twitter, "I am very sad to hear about the passing of Bob Kulick. He will be greatly missed in the music community, and my heart goes out to his brother, Bruce, who I'm friends with, and the rest of the Kulick family". "My condolences to his family and loved ones". The Kulick brothers would later perform on and off stage with the band, with Bob doing lead guitar for three tracks on the 1977 album "Alive II".


Todd "Dammit" Kerns, Canadian musician who played with The Age of Electric and Guns and Roses' Slash, posted a picture of Kulick and extended his condolences.

"R.I.P. Bob Kulick I had the pleasure of working with him on a Randy Rhoads tribute album a few years back. It's all about integrity, and that's how I'm able to keep going", he explained.

Early in his session career, Bob Kulick played lead guitar for Lou Reed on his Coney Island Baby record.

"I make great music; I don't settle". He is also known for co-writing the "Sweet Victory" song for Nickelodeon's SpongeBob Squarepants. We hope that we have succeeded by giving you the full details and information.
