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!

 Saying hello to former ABC NY Meteorologist, Bill Evans, @WPLJReunion last night. He’s now @WLNG 92FM out in the Hamptons.  Dessert: Shaved Ice @PigandKhao on the lower east side with @thelaravee, Christopher Singh and Maria Singh. So full...  Last night @irvingplaza in NYC, I went to see Mike Peters and The Alarm with opening act Ryan Hamilton, who was fun to watch as a one man band. He had the audience in his corner. Mike and his band came out blazing. Everyone sang with Mike all night. Just a fab night all around. My son was born during the making of the Change album. So it was a great reunion. #TheAlarm #theryanhamilton
 @chaseedwardsgallery ... come by if you want something to do June 15th.  A quick catch up with Ashley Davie before he headed back to Birmingham. Have to make the trip longer next time and I’m glad he got to see The Met exhibit Play It Loud.  What a great surprise to run into Debora Francis while I was having a meeting with Hillary @duggalnyc to discuss my upcoming photo show in Bridgehampton.
 Pinball Wizard - The Who with full orchestra. #TheWho #MSG  A break for an easy afternoon lunch to catch up.  In mid-town NYC with Andrew Loog Oldham and his lovely wife, Esther.
