State Of The UNION
Inside The Making Of The Blue Room With Bruce Kulick And John Corabi Pink-slipped when their respective bands reverted to their original lineups, guitarist Bruce Kulick, who'd spent 12 years in KISS, and John Corabi, who recorded one album with Motley Croe, joined forces three and a half years ago, and with bassist Jamie Hunting and drummer Brent Fitz, issued Union's self-titled debut in 1998. Now, two years and one live album later, they're back with an impressive sophomore effort that sounds huge and rocks hard. Closer in spirit and sound to '70s rock than to the '80s bands Union is often lumped in with, The Blue Room is named after producer Bob Marlette's blue-painted studio, where Van Gogh's "Starry Night" is reproduced on a wall. Its cover art is designed "to make you think, go somewhere with us," says Kulick, who categorizes the song structure as "simpler, more defined, more musical" this time around. "It's a newer, fresher sound," Corabi adds. While Union's first album was largely written by Kulick, Corabi and producer Curt Cuomo before Hunting and Fitz joined the band, this is more of team effort and reflects time spent together and road-seasoning. "I see the new album as a further evolution, not only because we have all the members from the ground up but also no one came in with finished demos. Everyone is credited as a writer on and helped shape each of the songs. It all evolved organically," says Kulick. - KNAC.com
