Batten down the hatches; the seventh KISS Kruise is setting sail from New Orleans on November 5, and two of the mighty sailors are none other than Bruce and Bob Kulick, the guitar-slinging brothers who've both made their mark on the KISS army. As you're probably aware, Bruce was a member of KISS from 1984-1996, making him one of the longest-tenured lead guitar players in the band. Older brother Bob was a close associate of the band who was a secret weapon when they were in the studio, performing on albums such Alive II and several others.
During the Kiss Kruise, Bruce and Bob will playing a set of deep cuts and hits from their work with the iconic band. They’ll be using their favorite ESP guitars on the pool deck, and also for the main stage event on November 5th at 9PM. The cruise itself heads from New Orleans to Cozumel and Costa Maya, so there will be plenty of opportunities to see the Kulick brothers. Bruce is a passionate collector of ESP and LTD guitars, favoring Viper models, while Bob's ESP collection includes a number of custom shop guitars (like his Silver Sparkle Eclipse).
