Bruce Kulick Studio blog update.
Back to the studio after a great weekend with Grand Funk
Railroad in Atlanta, and the clinic of course, and then a KISS Expo
in St Louis, MO. I only could do one day so it was back to "Shut Up
And Play" in the valley. I decided to get the guitars done for a
song I call "Lennon", as in a John Lennon sort of way, but the real
title is "Can We Just Wait" (at least for now!). Very haunting slow
tune, with cool chords that are musical to say the least. Had to
capture the best tone for the bed guitars and, after trying a few
out for at least an hour, Jeremy and I chose the red ES 330 from
1961 that we love so much. It will be on more of this CD as it has
such a great tone.

Well it was time again to get going with the guitars on my BK3
disc. This time Jeremy my co-producer co-writer and I went to "Shut
Up And Play" a nice homey place in the Valley owned by a very sweet
We jumped in were we left off with the tune that I think is one my
strongest. (Not real title for that one yet, but I have some
surprises in store for that track). We just needed to add one more
guitar to that, and then we moved on to one called "And I Know".
This song is very catchy and has a great guitar riff. We even worked
on the solo for the song. I recorded some tracks with a cool PRS
McCarty that I used once with Grand Funk.
Second day was HOT in the Valley, but it was time to work again and
Joe was along for the ride as well. At one point he just sat in my
arms while I did some guitar riffs! He really is a crazy dog, but
what can I say, he is MY DOG. Glad he doesn't mind the volume
sometimes. We concentrated on two heavy UNIONish sounding tracks
that I am expecting John Corabi to sing on and finish writing with
Jeremy and I. These are great catchy heavy tunes, and my new disc is
very varied in styles as usual, but these two could have been on the
BLUE ROOM from UNION. Brent is on all these tracks too.

Peter Criss "One For All" .
Amazon.com is currently listing Peter Criss' "One For All"
available for pre-order with the following track-list:
1. One For All
2. Doesn't Get Better Than This
3. Last Night
4. What A Difference A Day Makes
6. Faces In The Crowd
7. Send In The Clowns
8. Falling All Over Again
10. Heart Behind These Hands
12. Space Ace
Due for release on July 24, "One For All" will mark Peter's first
solo release since 1994's "Cat #1." "Hope" was a song that Peter
brought to the "Psycho Circus" album sessions in 1998, though it was
rejected. According to co-writer Mike McLaughlin, "I originally
wrote the music back in around '97 and sent it to Peter, and he
liked it and wrote the melody and lyrics. We went in an recorded it
with the intention of using it for the 'Psycho Circus' album. But
the rest of the band rejected it. Peter and I were both really
bummed cause we both loved this song, so it just seemed natural to
bring this one back for the new CD" (JG). Peter considered the song
to be an excellent piece of work, naturally a ballad, which was
written in a similar vein to the song Bob Ezrin and Paul Stanley
eventually gave him to sing. As the title implies, the song was
about Peter facing the numerous challenges in his life in a positive

KKB - The Lost Tapes (early Bruce Kulick)
Before touring with Andrea True, Meat Loaf, or recording with
Michael Wendroff or Blackjack, Bruce Kulick was a member of KKB,
comprising of Mike Katz (bass, vocals), Bruce Kulick (guitar) and
Guy Bois (drums).
Bruce recalls the band/material: "There was a guy in Queens were I
grew up who was a big Jack Bruce fan. He wrote some original
material and was quite creative a bit progressive actually. Kind of
Yes-meets-Cream. We were just a trio and our drummer was named Guy.
We did do originals. I wrote one song that I co-wrote with him and I
do have the tape of that. It was very interesting material and some
of the songs would even hold up today. It never went anywhere and we
never even gigged. We rehearsed really hard and when we recorded it
we never used over dubs. We just went live in a room. We didn't even
have a name for the band it was just me, Guy and Mike Katz. I gotta
find those tapes. I remember one time when I was touring with KISS,
I heard from Mike, and I pulled the tape out for Gary Corbett. He
said yeah this stuff is cool. This tape was done in the very early
seventies and it’s still really cool."
You can hear samples of two songs, No, Never and Hold On Me, at
