What a wonderful tribute, The artists that created modern music all came to Mannys and this special store should be in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. Because of the influence of Mannys all of us have been influenced in what we play! Viva Mannys!

My brother and I prepared for weeks in the summer of 1966 to make our first trip to the "city" from Astoria to see the guitars at Manny's. When we got there there was a Rickenbacker just like John Lennon's in the window and we knew we had found the place where our dreams were to become revealed! It took me two years but I bought my first Precision Bass on August 7, 1968 from Henry who was also tending to John Entwistle and Pete Townshend. They were playing the Schaefer Music Festival in Central Park that night. Entwistle also bought the same model that I did. Pete played a big box jazz guitar and made some very beautiful music while we all stood around trying not to drool on him! Fantastic day that I'll never forget. I bought more basses and guitars from Henry, Billy and Stuart over the years but I still have and use that first one which changed the course of my life. Thank you to the Manny's family for the music, instruments and great memories.
