Skeletons In The Closet is partly new release, and partly a career spanning retrospective look at the 50 year career of veteran guitarist Bob Kulick. Perhaps best known for he involvement with legendary rock band KISS, Kulick performed much of the studio work for Alive II and contributed as a songwriter to the KISS Unmasked album, and Paul Stanley’s 1978 solo record. Bob was also instrumental in helping his brother Bruce secure the guitarist spot in KISS in the 80s.

Aside from KISS, Bob Kulick has also played with Meatloaf, Balance, Lou Reed, W.A.S.P., Skull, Murderer’s Row, and many other bands and studio projects of the years. The list of contributors to Skeletons In The Closet is quite impressive as well, since the tracks span decades of collaboration. Artists include Lead vocalists – David Glen Eisley, Andrew Freeman, Todd Kerns, Robin McAuley, Dennis St. James, Dee Snider, Vick Wright; Bassists – Kjell Benner, Bobby Ferrari, Bruce Kulick, Dennis St. James, Rudy Sarzo, Chuck Wright ;Keyboardists – Doug Katsaros, Jimmy Waldo; Drummers – Vinnie Appice, Frankie Banali, Chuck Burgi, Scot Coogan, Brent Fitz, Bobby Rock, Jay Schellen, Eric Singer.

Listening to Kulick’s songwriting on this record immediately calls to mind the KISS sound. Fans of late 70s to Early 80s rock will love this collection. KISS fans in particular, but there are enough contributors on board to give Skeletons In The Closet a nice diversity within the genre. Definitely worth a listen.

    Stevie was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio. He is currently the lead guitarist for Melodic Rock band Red Reign, based in Richmond, Virginia, USA. Red Reign toured with Tesla in 2017, and shared the stage with Dokken, FireHouse, Lita Ford, Kix, Quiet Riot, and others at various dates around the US in 2018. Stevie heard his first KISS record at the age of 6 and was immediately hooked on Rock and Roll guitar. Over the course of years his tastes evolved, graduating from KISS to Ozzy and Van Halen; and then into Hair Metal. Over time, harder and faster music drew him. Bands like Metallica, Pantera, and Anthrax led the way, and Killswitch Engage took him over the top. Stevie has a deep passion for the guitar, not only playing them, but building them as well.
