Union - Do Your Own Thing Live! DVD Review
by Morley Seaver

Any KISS fan worth his/her salt will want to own this DVD. There’s a couple of hours of Bruce Kulick here and its all good, people. Bruce was always overlooked during his stay in KISS. And that’s too bad because Kulick makes Ace Frehley look like your Aunt Ethel (and I’m an Ace fan, folks). Bruce is a blinding fast, yet tasty guitarist that knows how to write a song as well as burn a solo.

With Union, he teamed up with ex-The Scream and Motley Crue singer John Corabi. Corabi can also write a pretty good song and is a better than good vocalist. The pair were joined by Brent Fitz and Jamie Hunting (Vince Neil).

This DVD is made up of a couple of shows from 2001. It’s interesting to see Corabi looking like a taller Dani Filth with his (then) new dreads. The set is a good one with material from both Union studio records as well as a couple of KISS cuts, “I Walk Alone” and “Jungle”. The middle of the set is among the best with the excellent “Heavy D”, “Jungle”, and “Love (I Don’t Need It Anymore)”. It’s always great to see Bruce take centre stage with his vocal delivery on “I Walk Alone”

Bruce also gets to play his version of the “Star Spangled Banner” from the Revenge album, where he throws in the all the tricks. In fact, Kulick shreds throughout this DVD, tossing off scorching solo after solo without making it look like he’s the centre of attention. Corabi is a riveting front man who is at ease controlling the crowd as he is crooning or wailing. 

The DVD is packed with extras. There’s another show from Missouri, a photo gallery set to music, and the Union merch shop. A highlight is the Behind the Scenes segment which shows John and Bruce in interviews; promo visits to various media outlets; on the bus clips, and a lot more.

Included in the bonus material is a previously unreleased audio track, “Walking in Your Sleep”. I don’t know why this was never included on previous albums because this is a very good track. 

This is one of those DVDs that is well worth the bucks. The performances are good and the extras help make it really worthwhile.
