Bruce Kulick Looks Back At Legacy Of Unmasked Era KISS

(Classic Rock) Former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick says he's proud of the band's unmasked era. He was part of the band for 12 years from 1984 and featured on albums Carnival Of Souls, Revenge, Hot In The Shade and Asylum.

He left the group when the band put their trademark masks back on, reuniting the classic lineup of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley.

Kulick tells Natalia Britt via Blabbermouth: "KISS is one of those bands that the whole world knows, and usually, people that aren't really a fan will only think of makeup as KISS, because that's what, of course, made them famous and they've been back in that for so many years.

"But a real fan knows there's a whole wealth of material - over a decade of years that are non-makeup, which is… I kind of wave the flag for all of that."

He continued: "If you, for example, didn't know there was a makeup KISS, and there wouldn't have been a version for me to join if it wasn't for the makeup KISS, but the truth is… When I was in the band, we kept it going, we had hits, we had gold, platinum records, toured the world - arenas, the whole thing… But I find, even with them continuing, and they turn on new generations of fans."
