Former KISS guitarist Bruce Kulick was shot outside the Rainbow Bar & Grill on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, California late last night and is currently receiving treatment at a local hospital.
According to a report posted at the Metal Sludge web site, "Around 1:30 a.m., there was a shooting outside the Rainbow Bar & Grill on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood. As the story goes, earlier in the evening there was a fight, and after the fight, one of the guys came back with a gun and opened fire into the crowd by the patio at the Rainbow, hitting Bruce Kulick and hitting one of [CYPRESS HILL frontman] B-Real's friends in the foot. A total of three shots were fired, and when the pussy was out of bullets, a crowd of about 30 people basically beat the shit out of the guy in the middle of Sunset Blvd. He was hit with bottles, kicks, fists, and shit like that.
"Bruce was being attended to down by the Key Club, where [MÖTLEY CRÜE singer] Vince Neil was performing, and will be OK but was naturally very shaken up. The latest report is that Bruce was hit in the leg from a ricochet, though some say he was hit in the head from a ricochet. Either way, we was obviously very lucky!
"As for the guy who opened fire, he was last seen being put into the ambulance and was really fucked over. The entire street was shut down and we will have more on this when it becomes available."
