Michael covers Gene Simmons "Love Is Blind" From
Alexx Michael / SHAMELESS
It seems we have a total of 13/ 14 songs to work on now.
I m super excited about the upcoming SHAMELESS album title track "So
Good, You Should“. There will be a great mix of brand new songs and
some covers. One of the covers will be the old Gene Simmons demo
"Love Is Blind“ which was never released. Super excited that this
song will finally get a real release.
May 29 : R.I.P. Bob Kulick (January 16,
1950 - May 28, 2020) From
Legendary guitarist and record producer Bob Kulick has died at the
age of 70.
His passing was confirmed by his brother, former KISS guitarist
Earlier today, Bruce posted the following message on social media:
"I am heartbroken to have to share the news of the passing of my
brother Bob Kulick. His love of music, and his talent as a musician
and producer should always be celebrated. I know he is at peace now,
with my parents, playing his guitar as loud as possible. Please
respect the Kulick Family's privacy during this very sad time."
Throughout his 40-plus-year music career, Bob Kulick has worked with
an astonishing array of artists: from
Meat Loaf to Motörhead; from KISS
Michael Bolton; W.A.S.P. to Diana Ross; as well as legends such
as Roger Daltrey, Alice Cooper, Lou Reed and Paul Stanley's 1978
solo LP and 1989 tour.
Bob began his musical profession at 16 — when most high schoolers
are still trying to figure out where they're going in life —
appearing on the 1966 album "Winchester Cathedral" from the RANDOM
BLUES BAND, the "baby band" that Bob played in that played The Café
Wha in New York's Greenwich Village alongside Jimmy James and the
BLUE FLAMES (later rechristened Jimi Hendrix).
1973 saw Kulick make the connection that he has been associated the
most with throughout his career. He auditioned for — and got passed
over by — KISS. Instead of being dejected, the six-stringer aligned
himself with the band over the years, playing on the studio material
on "Kiss Alive II", providing solos on the "Killers" album,
co-writing "Naked City" from "Unmasked" and guesting on Paul
Stanley's 1979 solo album and tour a decade later. He even suggested
his brother to the band.
Last month, Bruce admitted in an interview that his relationship
with Bob was "not healthy." Bruce spoke about his estranged older
brother five months after Bob made a public post on his personal
Facebook page as as well as on his Instagram accusing Bruce of
contributory "copyright infringement" over the sale of "Kulick
Brothers" merchandise items, including a signed photo. According to
Bob, the items were being made available via Kiss Army Merchandise
with permission from Bruce only. Bob went on to say that Bruce "has
a restraining order" against him, but didn't offer any more details
about the circumstances that led to the order being issued.
During 2017's "Kiss Kruise VII", the Kulick brothers played a
13-song set that featured 10 rarely performed KISS songs such as
"Turn On The Night" and "All American Man", as well as three
classics from Paul Stanley's 1978 solo album (on which Bob
performed). That same year, Bob released a solo album, "Skeletons
In The Closet".
May 29 : Paul
Stanley's SOUL STATION "Ooo Baby Baby" video From
These are challenging times. Long before I ever heard the great
British bands, I grew up listening to Philly Soul, Motown and so
much more. I was lucky to see Otis Redding and Solomon Burke among
others. That music and its storytelling gave me strength and hope
even in some tough days. The great classics of that era are magical
medicine for most and I felt myself drawn back to that era for some
sorcery I think we could all use. While it’s hard to connect
physically, some of Soul Station decided to reach out and make a
virtual and emotional connection on a great Motown and Smokey
Robinson classic, Ooo Baby Baby. Hope you enjoy! - Paul Stanley

Whitesnake's Joel Hoekstra, Kiss’s Bruce Kulick, Sepultura’s Andreas
Kisser and more jam The POLICE's 'Synchronicity II' for COVID-19
We’re always happy to watch a new quarantine jam video, especially
when it’s for a good cause. The latest in that category is Guitars
Against COVID-19, the brainchild of electric guitar player Gabe
Treiyer, who has performed with Gene Loves Jezebel and Toto vocalist
Bobby Kimball, among others.
Together with with fellow guitarist David Palau, bassist Pablo
Motyczak and drummer Gary O’Toole, Trieyer lays down a cover of the
Police’s 1983 song, "Synchronicity II".
Helping out the quartet is a host of rock shredders, including Monte
Pittman (Madonna, Prong), Bruce Kulick (Kiss, Grand Funk Railroad),
Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser and, turning in a characteristically
insane solo, Whitesnake’s Joel Hoesktra.
What’s more, the jam serves as a fundraiser for the Red Cross.

Watch first video from Chris Jericho's KISS cover band KUARANTINE From
Chris Jericho has joined forces with
TRIXTER bassist P.J. Farley, guitarist Joe McGinness and drummer
Kent Slucher to form a 1980s KISS cover band called
KUARANTINE. The band's debut video, for
the song "No, No, No", which originally appeared on KISS's 1987
album "Crazy Nights", can be seen below.
Jericho said in a statement: "When Kent & Joe approached me to sing
on a few 80s KISS songs, I jumped at the chance, as it's my favorite
era of my favorite band. Once we brought in PJ, not only did we have
a world-class band with years of touring experience, we also had
four guys with one common bond: to stay creative and to do something
special for all music fans during this pandemic. 'No, No, No' is the
perfect debut release for
KUARANTINE, as not only is it a crushing,
FUN rock n roll tune, but it's guaranteed to satisfy and put a smile
on your face...whether you want one or not!"
In addition to his world-renowned wrestling career, first with World
Wrestling Entertainment and now with All Elite Wrestling (AEW),
Jericho is the lead singer of the internationally successful rock
band FOZZY, which will release its new album this fall.
To connect with all those fans who are quarantined and staying safe
at home during the pandemic, Jericho recently launched "Saturday
Night Special". Every Saturday night, Chris has been going live on
YouTube to chat with over 150,000 fans
each week and answer questions, tell stories and even sing songs.
The shows have also featured chats with special guests including
Kevin Smith, FOZZY and Hurricane Helms. This Saturday, May 16
starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, tune in to watch Chris and his
KUARANTINE bandmates Kent, Joe and P.J., along with special guest
Bruce Kulick, former KISS guitarist, discuss their new project.
For KUARANTINE, Jericho has surrounded himself with a group of
top-notch touring musicians. Kent Slucher has been the powerhouse
behind the kit at Luke Bryan's shows for the past 12 years, from
small clubs to headlining stadiums and amphitheaters. Joe McGinness
is a rising country singer/guitarist, who has shared the stage with
artists such as OLD DOMINION, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE and GRANGER
SMITH, and is also a member of
KLASSIK '78, a digital tribute to '70s
KISS. Bassist P.J. Farley rose to fame in the New Jersey-based
gold-selling rock band TRIXTER, which toured with KISS, POISON,
SCORPIONS and more in the '90s and has released two albums since
reuniting in 2008.
KUARANTINE has emerged to entertain listeners with their versions of
KISS rarities and some good ol' fashioned rock music during these
unparalleled times. Look for more from KUARANTINE to follow soon.
