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!

 Worth the wait! Ribs, Mac and cheese and crab cakes. Will get the name of this vendor later. DELICIOUS!!  Waiting for Giada Valenti to appear.  Ever since I tasted these Shishito peppers, I think at Nobu in Malibu, they've become one of my favorites at restaurants when they have them. I decided to try and make this at home with a simple dipping of soy sauce and sesame oil.
 Standing on line for the last day of Harlem EatUp with Lara. I'm glad it's a nice day.  Going to try my Mother's Day lipstick. Excited for the new lipsticks. Going to see The Dives.  At the Kristen A Carr Foundation event at Tribeca Grill. Yes, that is The Boss, Bruce on stage with Honorees Mickey and Larry Magid, Barbara Carr, Dave Marsh and Jon Landau.
 In Times Square around midnight...  My daughter Lara took me out to a lovely lunch and gave me these fabulous lipsticks by Bite. The card was so touching. Lara, you are a beautiful daughter. You light up my life.   Mike Peters and The Alarm playing at The TriBeCa Film Fest after the movie Dare To Be Different. The story about radio station WLIR
