I only worked at Manny's for a short while, about 8 months, but worked on the infamous 48th street in NYC for about 16 years before moving west to Los Angeles. I worked at Alex Music starting in 1986(?), then We Buy Guitars, Sam Ash, Manny's, back to Sam Ash, and last, but certainly not least, Rudys. I knew Henry, Judy, the gorgeous Holly, Ian and Judd for many, many years. They were all great people and great to work for. Manny's should've been declared a national landmark due to their history and countless contributions to music and musicians. Very, very sorry it's no longer on 48th street. That store was a destination location for musicians from all over the world for decades and there will never be another place like it. I'll never foret the time's, experiences and mostly, the people I got to know while at Manny's and on 48th street. I am proud to call them all my friends.
I wish nothing but the best for the Goldrichs.
Love you all!
