Bruce Kulick’s Facebook post...

“I am heartbroken to have to share the news of the passing of my brother Bob Kulick. His love of music, and his talent as a musician and producer should always be celebrated. I know he is at peace now, with my parents, playing his guitar as loud as possible. Please respect the Kulick Family’s privacy during this very sad time.”

I hadn't realized that about the KISS work. A musician's musician. RIP, Bob.

Very big loss in the Kiss world.  Will spin the 78 Paul solo album in remembrance...

RIP Bob. This comes as a shock, I hadn't ever heard that he had any health issues.

I have a friend who is close to both Bob and Bruce and suicide is suspected.

Wow.  That would make it all the more sad if true.  Perhaps he was diagnosed with something he didn't want to face.  Unfortunately he appeared to be quite unhappy during his last 1-2 years and passed away while publicly on bad terms with Bruce (who no doubt is devastated).

Bob played on a few great KISS tunes as well as Paul Stanley's excellent 1978 solo album.  He was a talent who will be missed.

He did have a very weird interview at the end of last year where he ranted at Bruce for ending their recent Kulick Brothers partnership. He sounded very odd going on about how he won a grammy over and over, and various other things. At the time I just put it down to a one-off outburst but maybe it was more serious.

Yeah, it did appear to some that Bob was off his rocker of late.  The grammy obsession was weird.  It's like he felt a need to convince himself that he was a more famous celebrity (or deserved to be) than he really was.  Poor guy always seemed a bit troubled.  I think he carried some bitterness (and maybe with good reason) that Ace got picked over him.  Hopefully he and Bruce were able to mend their relationship before he passed.

He recently bought a handgun and shared a copy of the permit with said friend.  Apparently he’d been obsessed talking about it.  Maybe even an accident?  We’ll know more soon.

I think he wanted to continue the Kulick brothers tours that they'd been doing and Bruce didn't want to for whatever reason. I don't know what happened but next thing Bruce put out a restraining order on Bob, which seemed very strange.

That's so sad. I wonder if we'll ever hear what happened.
