Album Review

As many well-versed metalheads know, Bruce Kulick was Kiss' guitarist during their wildly uneven "non-makeup era" of the mid-‘80s through mid-‘90s. After the original Kiss lineup reunited in 1996, Kulick was out on his own (although lending his songwriting talents to subsequent Kiss-related studio efforts), and launched a sporadic solo career. His third solo effort overall, the appropriately titled BK3, was released in 2010. Borrowing a page out of Santana's rule book, Kulick enlists quite a few special guests to drop by and lend a hand throughout, including a few surprise ones (the Knack's Doug Fieger, Toto's Steve Lukather) and a few not too surprising ones (Kiss' Gene Simmons and Eric Singer, Kulick's Union bandmate John Corabi). As a result, the majority of BK3 is hard rock-based, but with others dropping in and out of the tracks, there are a few stylistic detours to boot. Interestingly, Gene Simmons' track, "Ain't Gonna Die," catches everyone's favorite fire-breathing demon in a melodic mood, while his son, Nick Simmons, tackles a track that would have been expected from his papa, the heavier "Hand of the King." Elsewhere, dig the tough power pop of "Dirty Girl" (featuring Fieger) and the instrumental guitar shredfest "Between the Lines" (which sees Lukather and Kulick slugging it out on their six-strings), as well as quite a few songs on which Kulick handles the vocals himself. In the wake of recent inspired Kiss-related releases (Ace Frehley's Anomaly and Kiss' own Sonic Boom), Bruce Kulick keeps the winning streak intact with BK3.

Customer Reviews

Great Solo Album from the former KISS guitarist

I bought this ablum when it was released in 2010. It is Bruce's best work as a solo artist! Glad to see some bonus tracks included on this release! This album is fantastic, and I still listen to it quite a bit!

Standout release!

There are plenty of killer tracks here. My personal favorite is, "No Friend of Mine", with Corabi on vocals. "Hand of the King" is killer as well. Glad this is finally available, now lets get the other BK solo releases on itunes as well!

Bruce's best work!

BK3 is a work of art. Every song is a winner and there is no filler! Love this:)

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Although Ace Frehley is considered the quintessential Kiss guitarist by most fans (he was an original member and vital force), it was Bruce Kulick who occupied Kiss' guitarist position for the longest amount of time — 11 years, from 1984-1995. Born in Brooklyn, NY on December 12, 1953, Kulick discovered music through his older, guitar-playing brother, Bob. While the young Bruce was still getting his six-string chops together, Bob Kulick was busy playing with local bands — nearly landing...
