Documentary About John Corabi and Bruce Kulick’s Union Band Scheduled for 2016
The film, which is being assembled by director Brad Bailey and appears to be titled Union: It's Complicated, is currently being promoted with a brief teaser clip, which promises a 2016 release and offers links to an in-progress website as well as a Facebook page and Twitter profile. As Kulick told Ultimate Classic Rock's Matt Wardlaw in an exclusive interview last year, the results should offer what he describes as a "fan-based" take on music he remains proud of — even if it was overlooked during "a difficult time" for that style of rock.
"There’s a fan in Canada that we used to see a lot, especially when we would tour up north, he’s done interviews with most of us and he’s finally in touch with John and he’s going to interview John. He’d like to do kind of a fan-based documentary on the band that should have been famous but wasn’t," said Kulick. "We can always couple that with the actual live DVD, which is technically out of print now and I’d like to do that."
Even though Union called it quits after releasing their second studio effort, 2000's The Blue Room, Kulick maintains that the music he and Corabi made together still holds up today. "The music was great — I’m very proud of [the albums that we made] and I have no issue with that," he insists. "The fact that it wasn’t as successful or enough people didn’t give it a chance, I think that’s something that they’re missing. I know it’s there — I know that we did a great job and that music is going to stand up for a long time."
