He’s become part of rock history as the lead guitarist of KISS, MICHAEL BOLTON, MEAT LOAF and GRAND FUNK RAILROAD. And like a bat out of hell, he was back in the studio to record some lead guitars for the new AVANTASIA album. Guitar legend, solo artist and Tobi‘s dear friend Bruce Kulick! AVANTASIA‘s new album Ghostlights will be released on January, 29th 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records.
“I remember I was eleven years old when I had a KISS Crazy Nights poster on the wall”, commented Tobi. “20 years later Bruce asked me to co-write and lay down vocals for a song on his solo album BKIII (highly recommended to check out), which was a great honor for me. Bruce is a great guy, a pro and an outstanding guitar player, he comes from a different background than me, which makes it even more exciting to have him on the Ghostlights album (out January 2016 via Nuclear Blast).”
