Through the lens of dissolution, Bruce Kulick and John Corabi came together, bonded through mutual pain, and a love for music.
When I think back on the most underexposed bands of the 90s, for me, it’s hard not to lock in on Union. For those that haven’t heard of Union, which is sadly for too many, Union was a supergroup of sorts, and for me, it was a band that really moved the proverbial needle during a time when heavy rock music was getting a bit weird in some ways.
In the heat of the moment, while Grunge as a commercial entity may have stolen the limelight, a whole subset of rather unpopular albums were created, and ex post facto, we now can give thanks for these artists manifesting these creations knowing full well their fan base may never receive them in the way they deserved to be.
The 80s and early 90s were a time of guitar god saturation, and perhaps you missed Bruce the first time around. I implore you to take a look back, and you will find that Bruce’s playing not only holds up, but it’s perhaps head and shoulders above many of his contemporaries. Simply put, a player, such a Bruce Kulick, will never go out of style, and his versatility will keep him at the forefront of the instrument for as long as he chooses.
When I was growing up, in my mind, there was no bigger or greater band than KISS. While the make-up era was what initially drew me in, I eventually came to love the non-makeup era equally. For the majority of those years (1984-1996), Bruce Kulick was the band’s lead guitarist, and through that music, he became one of my all-time favorites.
