KULICK.net - (Media contact: Anne Leighton 718-881-8183/Leightonmedia@aol.com) - Guitarist Bruce Kulick is recovering at home, after being released early Thursday morning (October 16) from Cedars- Sinai hospital. The main discrepancy in previous news reports was that the venue he attended last night was at THE KEY CLUB and Bruce was not involved with the altercation that occured at the RAINBOW BAR AND GRILL.
Here is Bruce's report:
"I had a great time at the Key Club seeing Vince Neil perform.
Highlights of the night included seeing my old drummer from Union--Brent Fitz-- play with Vince. It was amazing to see Motley Crue's founder and bassist Nikki Sixx getting up to jam with Vince and his band.
After thanking the band for the show, I left the club at 1:20 a.m. I was walking down the street (Sunset Blvd) just outside of the KEY CLUB to get my car with my friend when shots rang out.
I felt my right leg hit and my left temple glazed from at least two shots. I shouted Get down! but never saw the shooter and did not realize the gunshots were fired from the gunman a half block up the street near the Rainbow.
My friends called 911 and it was then I realized that a bullet went into my thigh just above the right knee.
The police and the paramedics were called amongst the confusion, and I was taken quickly to Cedars Sinai. Upon a thorough examination at the hospital it was realized that the bullet went through my thigh, missing the major artery and bone. I was very lucky in this matter, although I am in pain and uncertain how long recovery will take.
My hearing is fine, the temple wound was bleeding for a while, and the doctors called it a very fortunate "abrasion". To think what could have happened from that bullet if my head was not in the position it was that night is a horrific thought.
It was certainly a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, walking in a public street having no knowledge of any altercation in the vicinity. Of all the hundreds of people exposed to the gunfire, it is mindblowing to think of shots being fired in a crowd of innocent people.
Ive received many messages and phone calls wishing me well and really appreciate all the support from my family, friends, and fans from around the world."
Bruce, who plays with Grand Funk Railroad and was in KISS for 12 years, recently released a solo album, TRANSFORMER. His website is www.kulick.net and the band is www.grandfunkrailroad.com. He'll be updating the sites regarding his recovery from the wounds and his upcoming musical commitments.
KULICK.net - You may have heard or read that Bruce was injured during a shooting outside the Rainbow Bar & Grill last night. Please rest assured that Bruce, who was not the shooter's intended target but was hit by a stray bullet, has been treated and released and will have an official, personal message for you all shortly.
