BK3 MAKES APPEARANCE AT LA KINGS HOCKEY GAMES
Bruce's record label, Rocket Science, arranged a promotion with the LA Kings that saw BK3 making an appearance during two recent Kings hockey games on April 8th and April 10th. Bruce, who attended the game on April 8th, says:

"They blasted Fate over the PA system for about 30 seconds, and a 'lucky row' in the stands all won free Rocket Science CD packs, including BK3 of course. Covers of all the CDs were shown on the score board, and the Staples Center store was also carrying BK3. How very cool!"

BK COVER STORY IN APRIL ISSUE OF VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE
I am proud to announce that I'm the cover story of Vintage Guitar Magazine's April 2010 issue, out now on your local newsstands. In the article, "Wielding Power On BK3", I took VGM "behind the scenes... explaining how BK3 came together with a mix of guests and a massive assortment of gear. Bruce also brought out a selection of his personal treasures to ogle."

Those treasures, some of my favorite guitars and basses, are featured in a 3 page spread in which I provide comments about the history of each, including some from my years with KISS. Visit the Vintage Guitar Magazine website for more info on the issue.

RECAP OF BK3 RELEASE PARTY AT THE CAT CLUB
Tim McPhate was on hand for the BK3 release party last night at The Cat Club, and he prepared a nice report on the event:

On Feb. 1 Bruce Kulick hosted a release party in honor of his new album "BK3." Making it an even more special occasion, Kulick -- along with band members Todd Kerns (vocals/rhythm guitar), Adam Kury (bass) and Brent Fitz (drums) -- turned in a taut hour-plus set ripe with a couple of selections from "BK3" and seldom-performed non-makeup gems from the KISS canon. Of course, it wouldn't be Hollywood if there wasn't some sort of guest list involved.

On hand to show their support for Kulick were brother Bob Kulick, "BK3" producer Jeremy Rubolino, bassist Rudy Sarzo, guitarist/"BK3" contributor Steve Lukather, Ron Jeremy of adult film fame, former Playboy model and former Eric Carr girlfriend Carrie Stevens, "Detroit Rock City" associate producer Tim Sullivan, rock photographer Neil Zlozower, and Tommy Thayer. Shannon Tweed, daughter Sophie and son Nick (more on him in a moment) and, of course, where there are Simmons a camera crew for "Gene Simmons Family Jewels" is not far behind, and tonight was no exception.

'HAND OF THE KING' NOW AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
"Hand Of The King" (featuring Nick Simmons on vocals) is available NOW at the following online digital retailers: iTunes, Amazon, Amie Street, Emusic, Lala, Napster, Rhapsody, Shockhound, Thinkindie, Walmart.com and Zune! Unfortunately, "Hand Of The King" is only available as a digital download in North America.

"Although 'Hand Of The King' marks Nick's debut as a recording artist, he was a natural behind the microphone," says Kulick. "His lyrics are based on his passion for the dark imagery of the graphic novel world. The combination of vivid lyrics and brooding guitar riffs, against Nick's powerful vocal performance, absolutely resulted in one of my favorite tracks on BK3."

And don't forget, you can pre-order the full BK3 CD on Amazon too!

BK3 will be released February 2nd on Twenty 4 Records /Rocket Science Ventures.

CLASSIC ROCK NAMES BK3 'ONE TO WATCH' IN 2010
Classic Rock has named Bruce and BK3 one of their 'Six To Watch Out For In 2010': "Bruce Kulick has a very credible history, from Grand Funk Railroad to Kiss via Meat Loaf. Not to mention Blackjack (anyone recall them?). The guitarist is out on his own with BK3 (Frontiers), although he does call on old pals Gene Simmons, Eric Singer, John Corabi, Steve Lukather and Doug Fieger (of The Knack). No, he isn't hiding a lack of good ideas behind celeb guests, because this record truly does rock, but with a touch of class. Reflecting the man himself, the album is tidy, unfussy but very creative."
 
VISTA RECORDS BK3 REVIEW / FULL METAL ROCK BK INTERVIEW
