Grand Funk Railroad guitarist Bruce Kulick is smiling a lot, because he played session for Lordi, a Gwar-like band from Finland.  Lordi have gone gold, and just won the 51 Eurovision Award for best song.  "'Hard Rock Hallelujah was not
the song I played on but the first single from their release.
They were outrageous outfits, and play melodic hard rock, but singer is a bit aggressive. Needless to say," Bruce notes,  "Lordi winning the award was a huge upset to the European community.  Usually the winning song is a pop ballad." Lordi's fist album, GET HEAVY was released is 2002 and went platinum. Then they released, THE MONSTER SHOW, and their current release which features Bruce on a tune is THE AROCKALYPSE. Twisted Sister's Dee Snider and gutiarist Jay Jay French, plus Accept's Udo Dirkschneider join Bruce on the album.
