The Demon

Back in March of 2000, while living in the Phoenix area, I got to cover the opening night of what was supposed to be KISS’s Farewell Tour. The publicist who hooked me up with the review ticket asked if I wanted a photo pass to go with it. “Um … YA-AH!” I had never before photographed a concert, and didn’t even have a respectable camera with which to shoot one.

The outside of the building, the posters in the lobby, the hallways, the Barry Manilow store (yes, an entire store of Barry Manilow shwag)—even my room key, fer crissakes. About a month ago, I spotted Mr. Manilow at the Bristol Lounge in Boston’s Four Seasons hotel.
