Happy Birthday from Larry West


Yes it has been a long time since Les and I came to meet Manny and he sold us Les's first guitar from a real guitar store, then many years later when you gave me a no show job on your sales staff. Fast forward to today and even though I closed the News Bar, I think of you and Judy every time I pass through Fort Lee.

I love you buddy,

Happy Birthday

It has been 7 years ,and not a single day could ever ,ever pass ,that I do not think about you ,and how much I loved you. You were my  Bro ,and The absolute best friend anyone could ever be so lucky  as to have. You will always be a Rock star ,even if your Photo was not on the wall at Manny's ,You were Manny's . You touched more people there than anyone who ever worked there. Oh ,yeah , the Music Business ,sucks now,because you are not in it..You would be shocked to find out ,in many cases now… Continue

Happy Birthday, Henry!

All the equipment you see in this picture of my band, The Malibus, from Stamford Connecticut, was purchased before 1963 at Manny's; the Slingerland drums, the two Ampeg amps, one for the guitars and one for the vocals, the Fender Jaguar, Guild Starfire, and the Gretch guitars.

Henry, Stuart, and all the Manny's family were as legendary as the celebrated musicians we'd come to see and talk to. One of the regrets of my life is that I didn't spend more time visiting, observing, listening to… Continue

Happy Birthday Henry

Add my name to the list of well wishers on your birthday.  You sold me my Precision Bass on Aug 7, 1968 whilst entertaining Pete Townshend and John Entwistle (who also bought the same bass that day).  I still have and play that bass along with some great memories of going to your shop almost every week to drool over the guitars you kept "under glass"  All the best!

Happy Birthday Henry

Have the Happiest of Birthdays Henry.....

 From re-outfitting Tranquility after the truck was robbed to your picking out the last of the Brazilian Rosewood D-28's for me when Blood Sweat and Tears bought me a guitar after my apartment with Jimmy Fielder burned to the ground, to picking up mallets for Buzzy Linhart, you were always a mensch Henry. You never gave me less than a hard time whether making a purchase or begging for a schlepper shirt and I will always love you for that. It…

Happy Birthday Henry!

You sold me my first guitar, a Guild Starfire, approximately 45 years ago.  The guitar is long gone, sold by me to David Reiff, noted intellectual now, but an impossibly bright high school kid at the time.

I'm sure you don't remember the sale, as since then you must have sold hundreds, if not thousands of guitars to people much better known than myself.  I was just another teenage kid who would haunt Manny's, mostly to gawk, only occasionally to buy.  I might look vaguely familiar-…

Thank you for helping a young guy realize some of his best dreams.

The good ole Days!!

Dropping by Manny's was always a special treat! Just meeting all the guys working there, as well as so many musicians I worked with, was like coming home every time! It was clearly "THE spot" you wanted to stop by every time you were near 48th St. I bought my first 4 piece WFL drumset there in 1958 and it's still one of my favorite sets to play on. There will never be another music store meeting place like Manny's. It was…

Blog My Memory (?)

If memory serves me well, today is the birthday of a very special fellow. His name is Henry Goldrich, and I've had the pleasure of knowing him since I was 16 - when I bought my first "quality" electric from him in the old store (it was a Guild Starfire Emerald III)... he was a mench then, and he's still not only a mench - he's a hero - an urban legend - and my friend!
