"Tears.... Manny, Henry, Stewart... memories of a time so vivid and exciting. Manny's! The place to see and be seen. The loving tolerance of young and old musicians plunking pianos, strumming guitars, screaming solos, beating drums... all at the same time. A most delicious chaos of famous talent and wish to be's.
My first visit was in 1961 when Buddy Rich… Continue

It makes me smile the way I felt when Henry gave me my first "Schlepper" shirt.
I have to laugh when I notice people speaking about "Abruptness" at Manny's. Being Jewish and from New York I guess I understood it better than most. I begged for every "Schlepper" shirt I ever got. I might have been an important Road Manager in my head but to Henry I was just a Schlepper, basically a putz with the good luck to be in the Music Business. He always treated me like a Nephew that he… Continue

Hi, Ian, and many thanks. Yes, of course this would be way back before both our times. But I just thought you'd have heard about the store, being in the family. Attached is a photo of a mute I own that has a Manny's store sticker to verify the Forsyth Street store. This is so strange! how no one remembers the store. Online, all I've found was a quote mentioning Manny's Forsyth store, taken form a 1930 publication, Rian James' Dining in New York.… Continue

When my son Grant was 12 or 13, graduating from middle school, we promised him a guitar. But he had a very specific guitar in mind..it had to be a Les Paul Epiphone, with a sunburst and a Bigsby Arm!
Our friend, a studio guitar player, had patiently trotted him over to Manny's and across the street to Sam Ash to play every guitar on the wall that came… Continue

For those of you who live in the NY area or have visited here, you may be aware that the stretch of 48th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue has been known for decades as Music Row. Dating back to the Forties, a string of music stores including Sam Ash, Rudy's Guitars and several others have been the destination for musicians and enthusiasts alike...and standing head and shoulders above them all was the store founded by Manny Goldrich back in the late 30's..Manny's Music.
You name… Continue

On the walls of the famed Manny’s Music store near Times Square, photographs of the world’s most renowned musicians hang in varying degrees of condition and age, many featuring personal notes that reflect the quirky personalities of their subjects.
If those walls could talk now, the sounds of lament would be crystal clear. After 74 years, Manny’s — at the heart and soul of Music Row on West 48th Street — closed its doors for good on Sunday.… Continue
