Jimi Hendrix at Manny's

My fondest memories of this legendary landmark comes from my frequent visits there while attending the high school of the Performing Arts, which was then located on 46 st between 6th avenue & Times Square. In 1968 I was a junior & had just joined the official Jimi Hendrix fan club at Warner Reprise records with another member of school. A small group of the NYC chapter of the fan club had the finest 'Hendrix-watch' around & we would shadow Hendrix…

My First Visit.

     I had just gotten finished with my second foray into the world of touring as a "road dog"

backing musician. After that ended badly, I found myself back home. Board to tears, my

brother asked me if I wanted to go with him to NYC for an exploratory visit. Sure. Having

Memories

Memories: Mid-60's, cutting HS class, roaming the music shops on 48th street for the day - especially Mannys - then over to Tad's Steak house for a $1.39 Steak, baked potato and salad - Sigh!

Hi Holly and the rest of the Goldrich family

I remember going into the city with my parents and going into Mannys.  What a great place.There was a retaurant nearby (don't remember the name) that I remember going with Holly for I think Ice cream. I just remember being in awe of the store.

Happy Birthday from Larry West

Henry,

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

Larry and Les West
