KISS Video Spotlight (C) 2001-1997 Byron Fogle / KISS ASYLUM
Please Note My NEW email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Welcome to my feature on bootleg videos. I have been trading and collecting KISS videos for over 5 years and have a vast amount of knowledge. However, I don't claim to know everything. If I make a mistake on something please correct me. This article is for you the fans so let's make it great together.
My purpose each month is to break down a certain KISS concert and review it for performance & quality of the tape. I also will do a poll to get your opinions on what song from what video you prefer as the ultimate performance of the song.
I hope you the KISS fans will find it funny as well as informative. I welcome any requests, comments & questions you may have. Feel free to email me and as the subject put bootleg videos.

Video Spotlight Note:
Just a brief note to all who have inquired about my video collection. I DO NOT sell my videos. I used to trade but with the Government & RIAA's actions of late I cannot offer my videos any longer. I'm writing this since I've recieved a lot of requests about this matter. If the RIAA will lighten up and see we the KISS fans are rabid and want to get our hands on videos for our viewing pleasure and not for profit and they don't seek actions against the tape traders, I'd be more than happy to trade once again cause this is hurting my collection not being able to get footage that I'd like to see and or review. So please don't send any e-mails asking me this. If you have any questions I'll be more than happy to answer them.
A very popular question I've received as of late is since where can you the KISS fans get videos from. My best advice would be try KISS Expos, small local record shops that may carry videos/CD's, or record shows in your areas, & last but not least check the web you may find some traders/sellers out there. Hmm maybe even from a certain Video Spotlight writer too?????. Good Luck -- Byron Fogle
