In a new appearance on The SDR Loungeancient EMBRACE guitarist Bruce Kulick he was asked if he had a chance to resolve his differences with his brother Bob before the latter’s death in May 2020 at the age of 70.

And I heard, although we didn’t have the conversation, I heard from his people that he loved me very much, he knew that, if God forbid anything ever happened to him I was there and he didn’t want [our feud] Continue. Now, I know it was happening in the middle of the pandemic, and it might have given him that mindset. And I’m sure if he hadn’t passed away so suddenly, we probably could have worked it out. But unfortunately, all of a sudden he had a heart attack and that was it. But luckily I knew that weeks before, the people who were close [to him] shared all of this with me, which really made me feel so much better. But I know he always knew I loved him. But I needed some distance from him.”

bruce added: “You look at the music industry, how many brothers in the business [are butting heads]. Oh my God. It’s quite common. I don’t know, maybe it’s a psychological problem.”
