If you ever play Six Degrees of Bruce Kulick, the former KISS/current Grand Funk Railroad guitarist’s résumé will keep you happily busy for hours. Having been tapped by artists as diverse as Meat Loaf and Kanye West, the veteran axeman’s boundless creative energy permeates his third solo LP, BK3. In the works for nearly six years and produced by Jeremy Rubolino, BK3 delivers explosive hard rock arrangements and addictive pop melodies that honor both Kulick’s singular past and bright future. And then there’s the jaw-dropping guest list, boasting members of KISS, the Knack, Toto, Mötley Crüe and more.
“Bruce was to KISS what Ronnie Wood is to the Stones,” says Rocket Science GM & Fanboy Enterprises A&R executive Ken Gullic. “The new guy to one generation, and the long standing stable horse to another.”
After getting his solo feet wet with 2001’s Audio Dog and 2003’s Transformer, Kulick—the often unheralded driving force on 12 years of classic KISS records, from 1984’s Animalize to 1992’s Revenge—assembled his own rock ‘n’ roll dream team. The roster: KISS icon Gene Simmons and up-and-coming son Nick (each vocally appearing separately), longtime friend John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, Kulick’s own Union), Knack mainman Doug Fieger, Toto axe authoritarian Steve Lukather, Edguy power metal stalwart Tobias Sammet and even current KISS drummer Eric Singer.
“Many albums lack cohesion with different vocalists, but I know that my guitar playing is the glue on BK3,” Kulick says. “There was the clear goal of making absolutely the best record that I could put together. I feel like this is my Revenge.”
BK3 will be released February 16th on Twenty 4 Records /Rocket Science Ventures

It seems like every day I check the various news sources, there is another statement from another member of Aerosmith talking about the breakup, the non-breakup or the search for a new singer etc.
I have posted very little about this at HRH, as quite frankly, I am tired of reading about it. This whole thing has gone far past stupid.
I though Aerosmith had some pretty good momentum on their side for a while, with the release of kick ass video game, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, and a summer tour in 2009. Their tour this summer was plagued with sickness, and canceled dates. There has been nothing but drama in the Aerosmith camp since then. Quite frankly, if I want drama, I will turn on TNT.
My message to Aerosmith: Shut up and rock. If Stephen Tyler wants to do a solo thing, let him. If you think you will find a new singer to replace him, you are insane. Twenty years ago, this could have been possible. No one will care in 2010. Aerosmith without Stephen Tyler is unthinkable. If you want to break up, do so with dignity. Aerosmith will always be considered one of the greatest hard rock bands of all time. Nothing can take that away from you.
My message to Aerosmith management: Put a gag order in place for all band members. Issue a press release on the state of band affairs. Kick all of their asses, and get them back in the studio to release some new music.
Thank you for listening! Now let us get back to the rock!
