"After we (Silent Rage) signed with Frontiers Records this summer, and going into this new CD, we started discussing songs & direction. We also wanted to make this a killer CD with some special touches and performances. I called Bruce to see if he could come on board to perform on a song we had just recorded for the new CD called "Man or Machine", and told him I had written it back around the KISS Revenge Era, and the band had re-worked it some.
I thought he'd be perfect for including his guitar solo touches on the song. He said yes, and turned out a killer performance. It's always a treat and a pleasure to work with Bruce. What a fantastic guitarist and true professional! The new Silent Rage fourth CD title is "Four Letter Word." - Jesse Damon (Silent Rage) / [Photo by Gilby Clarke]

There is a great review of the KISSology II DVD set in today's edition of the Burlington Times-News. With regard to Bruce, reviewer Mindi Reinheimer had this to say:
"The greatest guitarist to replace Ace Frehley and help carry the band for 12 long years during the time they toured with no makeup was Bruce Kulick. He left the band reluctantly in 1996 when the original members reunited for several years. He did not rejoin after the reunion and is now the guitarist for Grand Funk Railroad and has many solo projects on the side."

"Just back from NYC and of course even ONE day of being involved with the Rock And Roll Fantasy Camp was amazing. Paul Stanley and I jammed "Detroit Rock City" AND "Rock N Roll All Night" with camper bands, and then Paul sang along with Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad as I played bass on "I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home". [Thanks to Al Soluri for the pix of me and Paul backstage]
The counselor band that I sat in with had Mark Hudson (grammy songwriter producer), Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple), Gary Burr (Ringo Starr), Spike Edney (Queen), Sandy Gennaro (Joan Jett and Blackjack!!), Andy White (Yes), Simon Kirke (Bad Company/Free), Jane Wiedlin (Go-Go's), Corky Laing (Mountain) and others jamming on various songs from Queen to John Lennon to Bad Company, Beatles to Stevie Wonder.
Big highlight for me was meeting and hanging with Leslie West from Mountain. He was always one of my guitar heros. Fantasy Camps RULE!" - BK
