Veteran rock guitarist Bob Kulick died at the age of 70.  His brother Bruce announced the death via a Facebook post but gave no details on how and when the death occurred.

Over the course of his long career as a band member, session worker, and producer, he has worked with KISS, Meatloaf, Lou Reed, W.A.S.P, Tim “Ripper” Owens, Motorhead, Paul Stanley, Dianna Ross, Michael Bolton, Roger Daltrey, Allice Cooper, and the “SpongeBob SquarePants” song “Sweet Victory”.

Kulick was only 16 when he began his professional music career playing with the Random Blues Band on their album “Winchester Cathedral”.

In 1973 Kulick auditioned for KISS but was passed over for Ace Frehley; however, he appeared on a number of the band’s albums.

Survivors include his brother Bruce.
