In a recent interview with The Metal Voice, KISS legend Bob Kulick spoke in towards his brother Bruce’s copyright infringement on selling Kulick Brother merch on KISS’s website without his permission. Kulick has also recently took shots at Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. Paul Stanley’s alleged sad KISS contract demand was recently revealed.
Bob told the outlet: “The only way that I will contest this is through the court of public opinion, based upon my lawyer’s assessment it makes no sense to spend money chasing dishonorable people. This is how it went, Bruce came to me and said I’ve found somebody who could do a design for us but you would have to pay half (which was $750.00) to get it going, so I did that.”

Kulick continued: “Keith Leloux who is one of KISS’ confidants is also in charge of some of the concert packages where he takes photos of the people who were paying an exorbitant amount of money to be able to stand on the stage where the band KISS is gonna stand. Keith Leroux is an arrogant person who has decided that he can do what he wants when he wants to do it and his company KISS Army Warehouse has obtained from the brother merchandise that I didn’t even have. Like for instance, I don’t even have a ball cap as part of our merch standards. I don’t know when they did that.” KISS Reveal What Michael Jackson Did To Paul Stanley.
Kulick also said: “Some photos I signed but I didn’t give anybody permission to put them on the KISS Army Warehouse website and have them sold without permission, with an agreement on how much they are selling these for and what is my share. And since I’m out of pocket $750 who is going to reimburse that amount. I mean it’s just as simple as that you know, it’s a business selling a shirt, like selling a car. I’m not talking about suing anybody I’m not talking about legal action. I am about to play the game with these people who after forty-six years have shown me very little respect for what I’ve done. I’m not paying one penny to do anything legal to these people because it’s not worth it to get into a circumstance where they will immediately do what they’ve always done which is to see whose pockets are deeper.”
Kulick concluded: “I’m not saying there’s any money owed to me other than what’s owed to me from this merchandise, that’s all and how much could it be? I’m just being honest it’s a copyright infringement this is mainly being done not to collect the money that they owe me, this is not about that what it’s about is respect. Sometimes you have to show people that they need to respect. I’m a Grammy award-winning producer with seventeen platinum or gold records I played lead guitar on a number-one hit single Diana Ross’ ‘Why Do Fools Fall In Love’.” Paul Stanley recently revealed this horrible threat to quit KISS.
