    I picked up a few of those from various music stores' bargain bins and downloaded a few videos off the net. Hot licks was around in the late 80s and i believe they seized in about 1990 or so. Of course the phone numbers don't work dude, it was the 1980s, that's a long time ago. LOL. Some of those hot licks vidz are really good and some not so good, but i always laugh at the fashion and big hair, its awesome. Try ebay i suggest, you might be suprised what you find.

    Yes. Hot Licks went out of business. If you ever wanted a Hot Licks video better scramble to pick up the inventory left at other retailers.

    I'm not sure if they have gone out of buisness or not. That site was updated in 2003.

    However you can get some of the Hot Licks videos on DVD from Amazon. They only have a few titles though. They do have an Eric Johnson one called Total Electric Guitar. These are much cheaper than the old VHS ones. He had another one called the fine art of guitar which is availbale on VHS here

    im no expert on this subject but from what i have heard is that they never really went out of business but the the guy who owns it had some major personal tragedies happen in the early 90s and just kinda froze for a long while but is in some slow stage of production now..mostly in updateing im sure like the DVD stuff that was mentioned earlier.

    It's hard to find it. If I'm not mistaken, there are few pirated hot licks vcd at my place. You can download some of it off the net too.
