MAKE SOMEONE'S HOLIDAY WITH A GUITAR FROM BRUCE'S PERSONAL COLLECTION
Well it's the holiday season. So why not make someone's holiday - maybe even yours! - with a sweet ESP Viper LTD 1000 guitar from Bruce's personal collection.

The guitar has an ebony fingerboard, gold hardware with locking tuners, Earvana Nut, and a set of Seymour Duncan pickups: a '59 model in the neck position and an Alnico 5 Humbucker in the bridge.

It's BK approved and mint condition!

Contact Bruce if you're interested. Serious inquires only, please.

BRUCE REVIEWS MONSTER
Bruce KulickSince KISS released their new CD, Monster, I've gotten many fans asking me if I've heard it. I'm actually flattered they ask for my thoughts, but you all know people have different opinions of music, even during my era of KISS. Some fans love Carnival of Souls, some are haters. Some are fans of Revenge, while others prefer Crazy Nights, etc.

I did feel like giving a review of the new CD though, especially since Eric personally delivered me a copy last week. I was traveling with Grand Funk last weekend, so I was only able to dig into the CD these past couple of days. But, here's my quick review of Monster.

"Hell Or Hallelujah" starts off the CD, and as you all know it was the first single released a while back. As much as it has a real strong riff that reminds me of some of my KISS albums, I'm actually not that keen on this song. So, let's move on.

"Wall of Sound" is Gene in extremely fine form, and I was thrilled to dig into this track. I love the mean riff, which could be off Revenge, and tough vocals from Mr Simmons have me saying, "YEAH!" on this one. Great title as well.

BK REMEMBERS REVENGE ON ITS 20th ANNIVERSARY
To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Revenge, over the next two weeks I'll be doing a look back at the album, including my thoughts about each track.

Bruce Kulick

Revenge marked the return of KISS in what I considered to be top form. Not that previous albums I was involved in didn't have highlights and memorable songs and performances, but Revenge was truly meant to be just that...
