BRUCE HEADED BACK TO AUSTRALIA FOR CLINICS & CONCERTS
Former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick returns to Australia after two years to celebrate his recording career with KISS.

GUITAR CLINICS: See, hear and experience Kulick perform killer cuts from REVENGE, including "Unholy," "God Gave Rock N' Roll to You," "Heart of Chrome," and "Domino" live. Bruce will also give exclusive behind the scenes insight into the making and recording of KISS's heaviest album ever with legendary producer, Bob Ezrin. This special 20th anniversary presentation is not to be missed by guitar aficionados and KISS fans alike.

Melbourne, Australia - Tuesday, January 31, 2012: Guitar Clinic at Allans Music + Billy Hyde
Sydney, Australia - Friday, February 3, 2012: Guitar Clinic at Allans Music + Billy Hyde

SHOWS: It was 1984 when Bruce Kulick made his recording debut with KISS, ghosting on the 1984 smash hit album Animalize. Bruce went on to record Asylum, Crazy Nights, Smashes Thrashes & Hits, Hot In The Shade, Revenge, Alive III, Unplugged, and Carnival of Souls. Bruce Kulick remembers the era well, and is coming to Australia in February 2012 to blast out some of the classic tracks that made up these multi-platinum selling albums.

"Australia was one of the countries that KISS didn't perform live between 1981 and 1994, there was a 15 year gap between 1980 and 1995 when the band finally made its return. We have a lot of catching up to do and celebrate the songs from that era - some of which KISS never played live ever, or only on rare occasions." Bruce said.

After releasing his third solo album, BK3, in early 2010, Bruce has remained incredibly busy, performing all over the US with the "American Band" Grand Funk Railroad, and all over the world both solo and with ESP. Bruce also keeps busy with session work and continued contributions to KISS including the multi-platinum Kissology DVD series as well as the recent solo albums of both Gene and Paul.

ERIC CARR'S "UNFINISHED BUSINESS" CD
With the 20th anniversary of Eric Carr's passing coming this November, Eric's family has scheduled a release of some new discoveries and some remakes of the music left behind. The CD is titled "Unfinished Business" and it's worth checking out if you are a big fan of Eric.

I know it was a very hard time for me back all those years ago to lose a band mate and a real friend, but celebrating his music is a very comforting thing. And as much as I miss him, I do feel like he must really enjoy all the attention while he is in heaven jamming with the other fallen heroes of rock stardom. So check out the CD.

A quick reminder about a few of the events coming up for me, like Madrid, Spain on the 25th of November and Helsinki, Finland on the 26th will be partly in remembrance of Eric Carr's passing.

More info on additional shows coming up in Europe and Brazil is coming soon.
