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…
