Manny's Music

The Wall of Fame: New York City's Legendary Manny's Music (Book)

The Wall of Fame: New York City's Legendary Manny's Music (Book)
Before the popularity of the electric guitar and before every teenager
with a rock 'n' roll dream had a band in their garage, Manny's Music in
New York City was providing the hardware for swing stars and big bands,
and establishing itself as the place to go for the musician in the
know. Besides being a garden of delight for musicians looking for the
latest gear, Manny's became a center of activity where stories and tips
were swapped among superstars and budding musicians alike. The Wall of
Fame is not only for anyone who has ever bought a guitar or played in a
band, but for fans and music history freaks who want insight into a
side of the music world hardly ever seen by non-musicians. It's for
whoever wondered where Buddy Holly got his Stratocaster . . . or where
Jimi Hendrix got his. Manny's was a place where you could almost feel
the spirit of those musicians whose photos adorned the walls. I
treasure my experiences in this wonderful place.--Carlos Santana

Everyone said go to Manny's so my dad took me there when I was 12. Shocked me by buying me a set of 1965 Ludwigs for my upcoming Bar Mitzvah. I was never religious, but am still drumming! Danny Burgauer took care of me in the old store, at 120 W…
