Bruce Kulick Sits In With Kiss on Kiss Kruise
Kulick's solo band is also performing on the ship. He came on a little more than midway through Kiss' set, for "Hide Your Heart," and stayed for the duration. Among the other songs he performed were "Domino," and "Every Time I Look at You" – all of which came from his tenure in Kiss – and some songs that preceded him, including "She" and "Shandi."
Kulick's cameo mirrors last year's cruise, where he and founding lead guitarist Ace Frehley took part in the same show. He later told us that the reunion was unexpected. "In the middle of the afternoon, on the day we boarded," he said, "I got a text from [drummer] Eric Singer: 'Heads up, I think at the sail away, something's going to happen, and you're going to play.'"
However, Kulick didn't bring an acoustic guitar on board last time, and had to borrow one from current Kiss guitarist Tommy Thayer.
During a Q&A session, Simmons said 15 stones had been removed, and joked that they'd soon be available for sale on eBay. He did just that in 2009, and raised $15,000 for charity.
The band also revealed that the 10th installment of the Kiss Kruise will take place next year.
