Guitarist Bob Kulick, who worked in the studio with Kiss and countless others, has died at the age of 70. No cause of death has been revealed at the time of writing.

“I am heartbroken to have to share the news of the passing of my brother Bob Kulick,” Bruce Kulick wrote on Twitter. “His love of music, and his talent as a musician and producer should always be celebrated. Please respect the Kulick Family’s privacy during this sad time. RIP.”

“We are heartbroken. Our deepest condolences to the Kulick family in this difficult time,” a message on Kiss’ Twitter account read.

In addition to his work with Kiss, Bob Kulick also played with Lou Reed on his 1975 album, Coney Island Baby, and was part of Meat Loaf’s touring band, the Neverland Express. Kulick also contributed to albums in the 1980s by W.A.S.P., and worked on a song called ‘Sweet Victory’ for an episode of SpongeBob SquarePants.

    Mate, you have mixed up Bob with Bruce. Bruce was the one who actually joined KISS…
