My Manny's Music Story

In 1967 a guy named Dave heard me playing “Hey Joe” on my acoustic guitar and asked me if I owned an electric.  I didn’t.  He was starting a rock band and needed a rhythm guitar player.  The members of the band were Dave on bass, Tim on drums, Randy on lead guitar.  Randy studied classical guitar as a boy.  His claim to fame was appearing as a contestant on The Ted Mack Amateur Hour, “I came in second to a dancing horse.”  We were college students at a small school in Ohio.  Dave was adamant…

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

been on the road I figured I had seen enough big cities to be prepared for anything. Nothing

prepares you for NYC.

     We took the train from our home town of Altoona Pa., into Manhattan.…

memories from (my uncle) Steve Chapin

Ah yes. . . Henry.  Always a hot experience for me at Manny's.It was there in the 70's (Harry with albums and Tom on tv with Make a Wish), that he referenced me as the "no-talent Chapin" one occasion while Tom and I were shopping there - it was actually very funny at the time, a Rodney Dangerfield moment.                                            But for the next two decades, every time I would drop $5K a pop for PA equipment, TEAC recorders, ADAT machines, Mackie boards, outboard gear,…See More
