Bruce Kulick has announced his decision to leave Grand Funk Railroad after 23 years with the group.

Kulick joined Grand Funk Railroad back in 2000, along with frontman Max Carl and keyboardist Tim Cashion. On December 14, 2023, Kulick played his final show with the band at the Peoples Bank Theatre in Marietta, Ohio.

“Thank you to the members of Grand Funk Railroad, Don Brewer, Mel Schacher, Max Carl, and Tim Cashion for these past 23 years of making great music together,” Kulick said in a statement.

The former KISS guitarist turned 70 last month, and he told Ultimate Classic Rock during an exclusive interview that the milestone made him consider his future.

“I really wanted to look at what I wanted to do personally and creatively,” he says. “I’ve always loved playing with Grand Funk for all of those years, but all of that travel for most weekends of every month, all year, the time involved became more and more difficult.”
