Bruce broke the sad news to fans via Facebook. He wrote of his brother, "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."
