According to a posting on former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick's official web site, the gunman who shot Kulick on Sunset Blvd. in 2003 has been sentenced to 10 years in prison in connection with the incident. "Justice is slow, but I know alot of my fans were curious to hear what happened," Bruce writes on his web site.
On Oct. 15, 2003, Kulick attended a concert by MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil at the Key Club on Sunset Blvd., and left the with a friend at 1:30 a.m. As he walked down the Strip, he heard gunshots. He looked down to see a hole through his leather pants, right above the knee. Next thing he noticed, blood was coming down his leg.
Kulick heard a second bullet whiz past his ear and realized he'd been grazed in his head by it.
The EMS crews arrived immediately and took him to the hospital.
"I'm very grateful for the immediate response of both the crowd and the doctors, and — obviously — the EMS crews," Bruce said the day after the shooting. "I'm fine and very thankful to be alive."
