Earlier today, Bruce Kulick of Grand Funk Railroad, and formerly of KISS, confirmed the passing off his older brother Bob Kulick on social media. Bruce would pay tribute to his brother and request privacy for their family.
Bob Kulick famously missed out as part of the original version of Kiss, losing out to Ace Frehley, but he would go on to play on various songs for KISS split between four albums. Away from KISS, he would play guitar for Lou Reed, Michael Bolton, Meat Loaf, Motörhead, W.A.S.P., and many others. Also, he had a connection to the world of professional wrestling, as he produced and played guitar on Triple H’s theme song “The Game,” and worked with Chris Jericho when Fozzy was part of the “Spin The Bottle: An All-Star Tribute to KISS” album in 2004.
As of writing, a cause of death has not been confirmed.
