Bruce Kulick is the only musician in the world who can say that he has rocked out on stage as a member of KISS and a member of Grand Funk Railroad, but the music doesn’t end there for him! I recently had a delightful conversation with Bruce and I got to learn a lot about what an incredible guy he is, in and out of music. We discussed everything including his time in KISS, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, growing up Jewish, Grand Funk Railroad, the Detroit Rock City film, the resurgence of KKB, his upcoming projects and much more!
Alex Obert: Seeing as though you grew up Jewish and we recently had Hanukkah, what is it like to now celebrate Christmas as well?
Bruce Kulick: With the Jewish religion, there’s something called orthodox and there’s reformed, which is the least strict, and in the middle is conservative. In some ways, my grandfather was pretty religious. And my mother wanted the house to be kosher out of respect to him. In those generations, you did a lot of things in respect to your family. And as much as my mom and dad were both born in America, my grandfather came from Eastern Europe. Actually, he was Russian. But a Russian Jew. He went through the whole Ellis Island thing and everything. There’s no way that I did anything that was Christmas related. I had friends that were Italian and Irish in New York growing up and I got to see plenty of the holidays. I remember an Italian family I was good friends with. (laughs) It was crazy! Thanksgiving would be the turkey and everything and then it’d be a full Italian meal. And it’d be the same thing for Christmas. For me, I was comfortable with the combination of the two. I always say happy holidays because it’s not really about one religion’s holiday being more festive or better than yours. It’s all about the season, as they say, and it’s so close to New Year’s and everything. It’s funny how Hanukkah moves around because the calendar is different than a regular calendar that our country follows. But it always seems to line up close to Christmas and all and everybody gets to celebrate. I really get into it. A lot of musicians, unless you’re someone like Brian Setzer who’s touring with a Christmas show, a lot of them aren’t really working. So it’s a time for everybody to kick back and enjoy things. My growing up was more in a general sense. I’m always okay with the holidays. I know some people get depressed with it, but I enjoy it. Now that I’m married to Lisa, we’ve been celebrating both. It’s fun. We listen to Christmas music, but I got the menorah going. (laughs) Kind of funny.
Alex Obert: Growing up Jewish and living in New York, I bet they had the best Jewish food there. What are some of your favorites?
Bruce Kulick: I’ve been asking my mother, who is fortunately still alive at ninety, about some of the meals that I always liked that she did. They were a little more old school. Gotta remember, when you say Jewish, you don’t really mean Israeli for a lot of the New York people. You mean more Eastern European. We all know some of the Yiddish things such as Paul calling me a mench, which is a Yiddish term. But my mother did certain kugels really good. They’re hard to describe though. Ironically this past weekend, I wanted to make potato pancakes. The name for them is latkes. I made them for my wife on Sunday morning and they actually came out really good. So I’ve been asking more about it. There were these really good places where my mother used to get some things that were on the streets where they catered to people from Eastern Europe. I’ve always loved the chicken soup, especially matzo ball soup. That’s what everybody’s heard of and knows. Lately I’ve been trying to try a few of the other odd ones. Even though I live in LA, there’s a lot of Jewish people here. There’s delicatessens that sell things that are different. There’s something called kasha, which is like buckwheat. I remember getting it for Lisa and I at one of the delis. I’d enjoyed it more than she did, actually. Just this week, I even googled a couple of menus, a recipe from Jewish site that has menus of traditional things, just out of curiosity to see if I’d wanna make something. I’m just a real amateur chef, but I do enjoy cooking. I’m gonna try a few more, it’s funny you ask that. Even Eric Singer’s into it, he’s not Jewish, but he likes some of Jewish food. We’ll talk about things like, “Oh, you know that place in New York!” And lots of times, one of the local delis here in LA, when friends come in from out of town, that’s where we go. Instead of a diner, you go to a place that has a little more variety and food.
Alex Obert: What are your thoughts on the Hanukkah Song?
Bruce Kulick: It’s very funny. Jimmy Kimmel just did one with The Killers. I like some of their songs. It wasn’t Hanukkah, it was a Christmas thing. (laughs) But it was so weird! I think it’s great for people to have a sense of humor around the holidays and all. I have to admit I don’t remember all the words of that one, but I know I was entertained by it.
Alex Obert: KISS had a huge year in 2014 with the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, though there was much controversy surrounding who went in. Looking towards 2015, what are your thoughts on the recently announced inductees?
Bruce Kulick: I was real happy about Joan Jett. I gotta say, knowing how political it is, her doing the Nirvana thing, which was real important and ballsy, I was pretty impressed. I didn’t actually stay that late because KISS had to film something really early the next morning, so I didn’t actually see it, but he did watch the HBO special. Joan Jett did a great job. I wouldn’t be surprised if they wound up voting for her because of that. I’m pretty impressed they picked Green Day, but they were always a critic’s band. Rolling Stone really supported them big time. If you think about it, they even got a show on Broadway from the music that they wrote. They’ve got a lot of talent, I’m not surprised that they got in. Stevie Ray Vaughan getting in is awesome, it was a long time coming. Every night before Grand Funk goes on stage, some of the music is just house music, but we control what plays when people come in an hour before the show. And Stevie Ray Vaughan sets us up, but it’s kind of interesting for Don Brewer to pick that because he was a little later than the start of Grand Funk’s fame. But everybody knows that he was just a monster guitar player who died way too young. That one I really agree with.
Alex Obert: And Ringo Starr will be receiving the Award for Musical Excellence.
Bruce Kulick: I’m such a softie for anything Beatles. Arguably you could call him the most famous drummer in the world because he was the drummer of the Beatles. And he was a damn good one, very unique too. I think it’s really great how he’s still alive and out there and doing things and spreading his peace and love. I’m such a fan. I did get a chance to meet him one time and have a short conversation with him. Thank God Lisa was saying, “Go talk to him!” because I was practically peeing in my pants! He was a Beatle! In that month, I happened to see his exhibit at the Grammy Museum and then there was an autographed photo of him that I bought from a dealer I know. So it was meant to be. I had to say something to him. I didn’t think I’d meet him, but there he was at Doug Fieger’s, from The Knack and he was on my BK3 record, the memorial in his home. They knew each other from AA. I’ll talk to a Nikki Sixx and it’s like, “Yeah, I met him at AA.” I think it’s kind of funny that, especially in California, all these really talented people who had a problem and thank God figured it out, they all meet each other there. (laughs) Thankfully I never had that kind of an issue, but it’s just interesting to hear that. So that’s how we ended up meeting. Joe Walsh was there, who married Barbara Bach’s twin sister. Jeff Lynne was there too. And they all knew each other from AA. But Ringo deserves it. Is he an amazing singer? No. Is he incredibly important in the history of rock ‘n roll? Absolutely. I think it’s wonderful that he’s getting inducted, on his own too.
Alex Obert: Who else do you think should be inducted?
Bruce Kulick: I don’t study that stuff a lot, but I remember Deep Purple was being discussed for the year KISS went in. They definitely belong in there. Judas Priest should be in there. I definitely think they haven’t really looked at certain hard rock and metal bands that should be in there. But I think they jumped the shark a long time ago anyway. Knowing from my experience, just being a part of the KISS family and seeing how they were treated and how it was dealt with and the politics behind it, the whole thing is a little nuts. And it is based more on Rolling Stone Magazine and that kind of group of editors and judge and jury. It’s not necessarily the best representation, but obviously the biggest. And it is very cool for someone to be able to say that they’re in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But there’s many, many people that should be there. Maybe they’ll get around to it. I’m always wondering if they’re just trying to sell tickets or really give it to people that deserve it.
Alex Obert: So what’s your theory on why it’s run by editors of a magazine?
Bruce Kulick: I think that they came up with the concept of doing that. I mean, look, Rolling Stone Magazine, even though magazines are struggling terribly, was always the eight hundred pound gorilla of opinion and everything. Now of course there’s articles about everything, politics and fashion and everything in the magazine. But I think because the guy who created Rolling Stone Magazine started it with people like Springsteen’s management, that things are favored a little more that way. I don’t think there’s a way to fix it, really. Unless you did it in a popular vote kind of way. That could be the only way to change it.
Alex Obert: People are waiting for Eddie Trunk to start his own.
Bruce Kulick: (laughs) That’s funny. I went to the Classic Rock Awards and that was really cool. I really love that magazine. They really do very, very cool in-depth articles on any band. So they finally did one here in California, all the other years were in England. That’s where you will see Ozzy and Joe Perry. And they’ll give awards. Is it as big as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? No way. But, to me, it’s the best awards show that’s related to the genre that I’m known for with KISS. You’re not gonna see a rap artist there! (laughs)
Alex Obert: On the topic of musicians, what are your thoughts on Joe Cocker recently passing away?
Bruce Kulick: I was a big fan and I felt sad. I didn’t make a comment because I never had a real connection to him. I did know Kenny Aronoff, the drummer that worked with him. I’ve covered his version of With a Little Help from My Friends many times through the years. I was aware that he wasn’t always well. Thank God that he lived to seventy. Compare that to my experience with someone like Eric Carr, who died in his early forties. Terrible. Cancer is a horrible thing.
Alex Obert: To take things on a lighter note, I wanted to ask you something that I’m curious about. Since it came out a couple years after you left KISS, what are your thoughts on the film, Detroit Rock City?
Bruce Kulick: I really enjoyed it. The story had more to do with the trials and tribulations of a bunch of teenagers getting to a concert. That’s enough for a story because we know how crazy teenagers are. And I knew some of the people that were involved, there were actually really big fans of all eras of KISS. The last name of the mother and one of the teenagers was Bruce, kind of a little shout-out to me. I have a little part in the soundtrack because the song that KISS contributed was actually a nice ballad that Diane Warren wrote and Paul sang. I wound up playing bass on the session, which was a lot of fun. And I know the director, Adam Rifkin, pretty well. I’ve run into him here a lot in LA. I’m a fan of it and they made do some special celebration of it coming up in the next year or so. I’ll be looking forward to that. I’m not sure if my wife has seen it. But I did enjoy it. And I’m looking forward to the KISS movie, speaking of movies that are KISS related. They’re calling it “You Wanted The Best. You Got The Best.” It’s a documentary that this British guy worked on. I was interviewed for it. And I think it might come out in 2015, certainly hoping it will. This guy’s done some really good documentaries. He’s even got Gene and Paul’s blessing and everything, I think it could be a really cool movie. Fingers crossed.
Alex Obert: Do you agree with the idea of KISS continuing as a band after Gene and Paul are gone?
Bruce Kulick: We’re not there yet. (laughs) I know that Eric made some comments saying he wouldn’t be into it. And I don’t think he would be into it. I think it would be kind of weird because you’d have twenty, thirty years in the band and then be playing with guys that are cover guys. Bands like Judas Priest having Ripper Owens pop in for a while, he did a good job. Or Journey with the Philippine kid that can sing like Steve Perry. I think that that model works. I mean, look, Gene and Paul didn’t wanna work with Ace, Peter was done, it’s possible to insert somebody else to do that. So I don’t even think what they’re doing now is wrong at all. And honestly, I think it would be completely different if Gene and Paul were actually ready to step down. They’re not ready to step down yet. But obviously KISS fans love the conjecture of “what if?” and “what do you think?” Everyone goes wild, the boards and everything. It’s very askew in many directions. And I know Doc had said some things about it, then Gene says, “It’s not true! Paul would come out and say something like that. Nothing like that is happening!” It’s silly to talk about while they’re still very vitale and hungry and relevant and out there. But I don’t think just because Gene or Paul would say that they’re retiring that Tommy and Eric would still hang around, even though they’re little younger. Tommy’s actually the youngest. I think it would be a whole different angle if something else would happen. That’s just my opinion. I have no facts behind it. I think what they created is iconic. I wasn’t part of that version of KISS, and yet, I’m a part of it. So there’s a whole nother era that I represent. And I know there’s many fans that really love that too, it’s not as identifiable, but certainly unique. Many great albums and songs and tours, that’s what I concentrate on. But certainly, these guys could carry on the four iconic characters in many, many shapes. That’s why merchandising is unbelievable. And now they’re doing something with a Japanese artist, doing stuff like that. They were big with Hello Kitty. It’s really incredible what they created. Truly incredible. It’s timeless and it keeps attracting new generations. And then when they get really into it, the parent pops in and notices something like KISS Unplugged. Then they’re mesmerized by it. And it’s still KISS. With no crazy outfits. I can’t believe how many of these young kids that might meet me at an event or something and they’re just so enamored with me. I didn’t wear any makeup or anything, but I did get to perform that music. I got to be presented in the manner of lead guitarist with KISS.
Alex Obert: What was your favorite year of KISS while in the band?
Bruce Kulick: That’s a tough one to say. I mean, when I first joined, that was amazing. I toured really big before, but now I’m a featured guy on stage. Backing up Meat Loaf was a lot of fun in some ways because we were headlining arenas all around the world. Not right away, but within three or four months. But that was a different kind of show. And all of a sudden, five years later, I’m on stage as the lead guitarist for KISS. So the beginning was really exciting. It got a little routine, maybe in the middle, for me. But I did always give it a hundred percent. Some of the Crazy Nights times was very exciting because we got to do Monsters of Rock and really tour everywhere. And I remember Hot in the Shade had some really incredible highlights because of the long tour and great bills with bands like Winger and Slaughter, which was very, very important at that time. Album wise, Revenge was probably my favorite, even though each album had highlights. Doing Unplugged, even though it was my last real gig with the band, I’m still super, super proud of it. I believe it was thirty years just recently for Animalize. It’s kind of funny, the more I look back at some of this stuff, I know there were other years where I look back and I go, “Oh my! I’m playing that too fast!” or “What the hell am I playing?” And now, I don’t know why, maybe it’s because I’m seeing it in a little different light, I’m really more and more proud of everything that we accomplished and everything that I did. I’m not looking at it so critically.
Alex Obert: As a member of Grand Funk Railroad, how does that stage show differ from a KISS show?
Bruce Kulick: When I was in KISS, technology was not quite as extreme as it is now. But still, we had lasers, we had bombs, we had huge lights, it was a lot of really exciting things. And then again, there were times where we played a club to do the right promotion like Alive III. We would do things like that then. It’s about the music with something like Unplugged. The camera work was great and everything was colorful, but we weren’t shooting off bombs or smashing guitars or anything like that. We were sitting on stools playing and it was still KISS. And it’s really entertaining. So for me, guitar playing is always about me wanting to play great and look good and share my passion of music with the crowds. But KISS always does, in general, put on an over the top show. Grand Funk’s always been about the music, very high energy kind of music. Some of the songs like We’re an American Band or Footstompin’ Music prove that. But it’s a little more R&B, it’s a little more funk, little more soul. It’s little different, but it’s still based on rock ‘n roll. We really don’t carry much production at all, it’s really all about the talent of the five guys on stage. It’s funny how many KISS fans I meet where they may have heard of the band, but they don’t think they know a song, and then I might sing a little bit of We’re an American Band or Locomotion or I’m Your Captain or something like that and they’ll go, “Oh yeah! I know that song! That’s Grand Funk?” There are Grand Funk fans that are really huge and it’s funny that I might meet somebody randomly where we’re talking about music and they’ll ask what I do and I say, “I play guitar. I play in Grand Funk.” And they go nuts. And then I go, “Yeah, and I used to play in KISS.” And they go, “So tell me about Grand Funk!” I don’t want you to think I don’t get recognized for KISS, of course I do. It’s almost every other day I go somewhere and someone’s like, “Are you Bruce?! Oh my God!” It happened a couple nights ago at the will call when I was going to a concert, this guy was just like, “Oh man!” He was all excited, introducing me to his wife and he was a big fan. And he’s not gonna say something like, “Wow! You’re with Grand Funk!” We gig and I’ve been with the band for fourteen years, but I haven’t put out platinum and gold records like I did with KISS. It’s a different thing. But no matter where we play with Grand Funk, from casino to a rock festival to a local gig to private gigs, it always goes over so well. I especially love when we play to crowds in a city center of some town that’s having a big summer festival where every other week, they bring in a different band. You get such a varied age group and I love the fact that all the ages know Grand Funk, in the same way in a lot of different generations love KISS. They’ll sing along, they may not even know that I was from KISS or anything, but they’ll just really dig it. That connection is there, even though I not quite going as crazy in any way like a KISS show. As much as the record industry is upside down and everything is really confusing with how this music business is working, live gigs are still all about performing and entertaining people. That avenue for me has been very rewarding, which is why I’m so proud of the fourteen years now with Grand Funk.
Alex Obert: I understand you also had a recent big announcement with KKB. How did the band start and lead up to this?
Bruce Kulick: The band started forty years ago and we really didn’t even have a name. I’m growing up with a couple of guys in the neighborhood and Mike Katz, the principal writer and singer was just super talented. I love Eric Clapton, he loves Jack Bruce, he lives on my block. That couldn’t be any better. And next thing you know, we know a really talented drummer that’s kind of a Ginger Baker type who lives five blocks away with a basement that we could rehearse in. Van Halen has a story where it’s all like, “David Lee Roth’s got the PA, he’s in!” (laughs) The three of us used to hang out and rehearse. We didn’t practice Cream songs, we were just working out these songs that Mike wrote. I cowrote one. We just rehearsed them to death and one day we went into the studio and recorded them. And I found the tape back in like 2008. I had bought a really nice tape recorder at a local garage sale. And I remember I played my buddy, Chuck Wright of Quiet Riot this tape that I had of the six songs that we recorded. And he freaked, he said, “You gotta put this out! This is amazing!”I was twenty years old then. The sound was good and it was mixed professionally, considering it was 8-track and it was 1974. So at the time, I normally sold my solo discs online, but this one I decided I’m just gonna do a limited run of one thousand. We had one extra track and we had a bonus track of a jam version of one of the songs. And there was, KKB 1974. I did a limited edition of one thousand signed and numbered, they sold out fairly quickly. That’s all I wanted to do with it. So fast forward, I’ve always kept in touch with Mike, not as much with Guy Bois, the drummer. Though more recently, yes. But Mike and I started to cross paths a lot where he’d see me with Grand Funk. He was out here in LA and the beauty was even though back then, I kept asking if he had the original tapes. I was telling him that he could remix it and add things and do different things. So he finally found them. And then I said, “Alright, this is great. Let’s readdress all this music that we worked on back there, but let’s also do a new song.” And I was already writing some stuff where I didn’t know if I would use it for my next solo record or not, but as soon as I thought of KKB, I told him to take it home to do something with it and finish it. And what he came up with was super catchy. You hear it in the first thirty, forty five seconds of the KKB promo video I posted on YouTube. The first thing on the teaser video that I was sharing with the fact that that song which you’re hearing with strings on it had no strings, it was just a guitar and a voice double tracked. And now it has a string quartet that my producer friend wrote a beautiful chart for. We haven’t even started to look at the other songs to see what we maybe want to add or not, but they’ll all be remixed and remastered. And I think there’s a couple other bonus things that we’re finding. The important thing is that it’s actually forty years in 2014, so I wanted to tease everybody and say that I’m still gonna call this the fortieth anniversary, but it won’t come out until 2015. (laughs) Some of that was just the more we dug, the more we found. And I realized I’m really gonna have only one opportunity to re-release this, so let’s do it right. I’m real proud of the video that a buddy of mine put together for me and I’m very excited about the new song. I think it’s right up all my fans’ alley, they’re gonna really dig it. And I’ll get it on iTunes and everything as well.
Alex Obert: That’s pretty big! Sounds like it’s going to be a good time. You’ve been up to a lot and I previously heard a lot of great discussion about your endeavors when you were a guest on Talk Is Jericho. That was a great episode.
Bruce Kulick: Chris is great and a big supporter of my KISS era and of me. And the podcast was fun.
Alex Obert: Though you two connect through music, have you ever seen him wrestle?
Bruce Kulick: Only on TV and it was long time ago. I’ve known him more as the KISS freak and the musician than as the famous wrestler. Lisa has a son who’s really into wrestling. He’s twenty eight now, but he grew up going crazy over wrestlers, so he’s always very impressed when I tell him about Chris Jericho or a famous wrestler attending an autograph show or something. But again, he’s so serious with Fozzy, which is quality stuff. He’s so into music. He’s a true entertainer, I’ve gotta give it to him.
Alex Obert: Would you be open to doing a tour with Fozzy?
Bruce Kulick: I would love to do something with those guys, that’s a cool idea. My problem with doing my own tour is that Grand Funk works just about any month of the year, so I always have to pick my little spots when I stretch out and do something different. I wanted to mention something that’s really different. I got married last January 4th and it was a beautiful wedding. I was really thrilled, everything went so well and it was all my lovely wife’s creation. I’m just way too nervous about details. (laughs) Imagine how many things can go wrong, inviting a hundred people to a venue, anything can happen. But everything went great. We recorded a song for it that we played at the wedding and it’s a part of that video montage of the wedding, which really came out beautiful too. A lot of people don’t know that the music that’s playing behind that wedding video when you Google Lisa and my name is Lisa singing and me playing jazz guitar with our good buddy on piano. It’s now available on iTunes and Amazon. It’s a beautiful song and Lisa has an incredible voice. Just another bonus I have about having her in my life. And it’s a whole different kind of music for me. Amazon judged it as Broadway pop vocal. (laughs) I never thought I’d be part of something that was like Broadway. But I get it, she has a little bit of this Barbra Streisand thing in the voice. Streisand originally sang this song for her wedding, it’s not that well known, but it’s a beautiful song. As soon as Lisa played it for me, she asked me what I thought about recording it, we wouldn’t perform it, but we’d play it for our first dance. I loved the idea, it was wonderful. It’s Lisa Lane featuring Bruce Kulick. I’m very proud of that. I want to do more music with her in the future too, but one step at a time. And her roots are completely different, even though she can sing rock, I like when she sings what she’s into. That’s more of a vintage kind of vocal styling. My Christmas greeting had a Dean Martin album in the corner, stuff like that. I’m rock ‘n roll and I love guitars and the Beatles and everything, but there’s also something about the Rat Pack that I’m obsessed with. That’s a part of Lisa’s world that I’ve always really enjoyed. Being versatile and having a lot of different influences makes my life fuller.
Alex Obert: Before we wrap up, I have a question for you that is on my mind. Would you ever consider releasing an autobiography?
Bruce Kulick: There was a time about ten years ago where I was actually working really actively with a guy in the industry on a book, he really knew KISS and knew a lot about me. I remember having some interviews done with some really cool people like Bob Ezrin and my mom, he got really busy with it and with me. I remember when we started to think about shopping it, everybody was like, “Alright, so you’ve got a lotta dirt, right? And you’ll throw this guy under the bus, you’re gonna complain about this, you’re gonna let everything out of the closet that you ever even imagined.” And I’m like, “No…” Then I realized that’s the only thing they’re interested in. The idea is that to get an advance to do a book, it needed to be all about saying whatever bad you could. And that’s what they were interested in. I remember The Dirt being very popular at the time. Look, Mötley Crüe is very controversial. I know Nikki very well, but come on! When I was in KISS, there was nothing like that going on where it was so crazy. There was rock ‘n roll and fun, but there wasn’t all this crazy debauchery and drugs. It wasn’t that. So that really took the enthusiasm out of it. But to get more current now, I am thinking about it. I’m not thinking about it for 2015, but I have been doing a lot of retrospectives for anniversaries that come up because they’re all fun anniversaries and things that I’m really proud of. It’s been really a lot of fun to go through that stuff like Revenge track by track and the tour or the most recent big anniversary, Hot in the Shade. And I’m looking at all of those things as being a part of the book. Besides the stuff that I started with ten years ago for a book, I can expound upon all that and really make them even larger. The reaction that I get from all that stuff is wonderful. I think people really enjoy the little tidbits that I have of everything that I did during the KISS years and how I felt about certain things. I wouldn’t call it a book like The Dirt, but I will talk about things like how I didn’t like drum machines and I didn’t know why we were using that. It’s a way to be a little critical without throwing someone under the bus and saying really bad things about people that I really admired working with.
Alex Obert: In closing, do you have any additional plugs for readers?
Bruce Kulick: Go visit my website and Facebook! (laughs) There’s a couple things that I’m working on for 2015. One thing we didn’t talk about, which I definitely wanna mention, vinyl’s really popular, right? It seems to be the only music that people are buying more quantities of each year compared to physical CDs and digital downloads. I’m very proud of BK3 and I agreed to make a vinyl release of it. It will come out sometime in February, hoping around the actual five year anniversary, which would be February 10th, but it may be a little later in the month. These plans to make vinyl get so backed up. You’d be shocked to know how long ago I signed off on everything and got the ball rolling. Hoping for that middle of February release. I’m really excited about that. And I am planning on writing more and more music and planning on recording another record. I call it BK4 right now, but that’s not really gonna be the title. It would be my fourth solo record though. I’m looking at that in 2015. Obviously getting KKB updated with new material on it, sharing my wedding song with Lisa, more Grand Funk dates, more trips, you never know what opportunity comes up. It’s very interesting how a year and a half ago, I wouldn’t have thought that I would be going to Iceland. Within four months, it’s all put together and I went to Iceland for a show, it was crazy. Those are the kind of things that are just fortunate that come up for me.
Alex Obert: So many great things going on for you! I’d love to thank you so much for your time and an excellent interview.
Bruce Kulick: Thanks!
