For the Love of 48th Street

Posted by  on 
October 1, 2015

If you’re a musician, then you have heard of Manny’s or Sam Ash and many other music stores on West 48th St. It was a place where you would go to buy your instrument, amp or anything to do with your music and your craft. Unfortunately, the music stores on the street, in recent years, have gone into decline. Holly Goodrich, whose family owned Manny’s, decided to do an evening to celebrate W. 48th St. which many have come to call “Music Row.”

 

Many musicians got up and jammed with the house band which had drummer Simon Kirke (Bad Company/Free), keyboardist Benny Harrison (Slash/Peter Criss), bassist Kenny Aaronson (Mick Taylor/Bob Dylan and guitarist Steve Conte (NY Dolls/Paul Simon) to name a couple of people you might know. At one point we had 2 drummers on stage, not only Simon, it was either Carmine Appice (Rod Stewart, Vanilla Fudge), the one and only Bernard Purdie or Rich Pagano (The Fab Faux.) Other guests were Ian Lloyd (Brother Louie), guitarist Julio Fernandez, Mark Hudson, Gene Cornish (The Young Rascals) and many more.

 

Great night for good Rock’n’Roll music!

 Now that my chips are cooked, I'm ready to sit down and enjoy these potatoes and watch #TheGrammys with host #JamesCorden. I might have to make more.  The end result...now I'm hungry!  After pic of Lara's hair ordeal!
 What a night of music at the Iridium for Holly Goldrich's For The Love of 48th St. Here I am with 2 friends who performed tonight...Christine Ohlman and Jimmy Kunes.  My dinner tonight...tons of veggies with some bean thread noodles. It will be yummy!  It took approximately 6 hours to get my daughter Lara's hair cut, colored, washed and styled. She started at 11:00am. I managed to get my hair cut and shampooed at 4 pm and I was still finished before her! We were starving by the time we left.
 So hungry...made lentil soup. My first time. I hope it taste good.  The other side of Lara's head....  Joey Molland's Badfinger performing at BB KINGS.
