I live in Tucson Arizona, when I heard that Yankee Stadium was in its last year in 2008, I booked a flight to New York to catch a game betweeen the Orioles and the Yankees,t as I was flying to NY in May, I was thinking about Lester Bangs and Creem Magazine, and I always knew all those artists in the 70s that were in Creem Magazine shopped at Mannys. As soon as I got my hotel and checked in, I headed over to Mannys. When I walked into the store, I told the manager I just got in from Arizona and have been waiting since 1975 to be at Mannys, He told me " We have been waiting for you!" That made my journey! They gave me some guitar picks for my band and I bought the book and I took a picture of me playing a guitar in the store! What a great music store, what priceless history, a true Icon in our industry!
