UNION GUITAR PICKS

In my opinion, the best band to spur out of , and perhaps the absolute nicest, most fan-friendly band in the world is...UNION!  This reference guide to UNION guitar picks and drumsticks is dedicated to the band and its fans.

 

In late 1997, Bruce started a new band with ex-Mötley Crüe vocalist John Corabi called UNION.  The band recorded two studio albums and one live album.  Unable to secure a warm-up slot on a major tour, the band struggled to get their music and their name out to the people. It is a shame their record label did not promote UNION more heavily. This is the best band no one ever heard of!

 

Bruce later joined Grand Funk Railroad in 2000 and to date has released two solo efforts. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist John Corabi joined the Wayne DiMartini/ Bobby Blotzer version of Ratt.  Drummer Brent Fitz and bassist James Hunting went on to play in the Vince Neil Band.

 

I've been extremely fortunate to meet Bruce Kulick multiple times over the years. Bruce treasures his tenure in and his fans. He is a frequent guest at fan-based expos and always makes himself generously available at those events.

As best I can tell, Bruce started with black print and went to silver print, John started with silver print and went to oil slick print, Jamie started with oil slick print and went to glitter prism and Brent started with oil slick print and went to silver print.  If you have more detailed knowledge of this, please let me know.
