In 1972, Bob auditioned for Kiss but lost out to Ace Frehley. Five years later, Frehley wasn't available to attend recording sessions for the band’s eighth album "Alive II," and that’s when Bob was used to play lead for three of the studio songs.


He ended up working with the rock band and touring with them for many years. In 1975, he was featured on Lou Reed's album, “Coney Island Baby.”


He was also part of Meat Loaf's touring band, the Neverland Express. The guitarist also took part in creating Kiss singer, Paul Stanley's, 1978 solo album.

In 1982, the star was the lead guitarist on multiple songs on the compilation album "Killers" and other projects. He also worked as the songwriter on the single "Naked City."



Bob has also been credited for working on the cartoon “SpongeBob SquarePants’” song "Sweet Victory." Two years ago, the artist recorded his first solo album.



The artist also played with the West Coast heavy metal band W.A.S.P. Bruce also played guitar for Kiss between 1984 and 1996.


The Kulick brothers toured with Meat Loaf and were able to collaborate on a few releases. Several fellow artists took to social media to share their support and condolences to the star’s family.

Rock ‘n Roll singer Jeff Scott Soto, guitarist Gus G., and many more artists shared their sadness for the loss.
