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!

 The Kids Are Alright!  Eddie Money and his fabulous wife Laurie @MET. We were waiting for the rest of their kids so we can go and have lunch there. Eddie had to leave to meet DJs Ken Dashow and Maria Milito. Great afternoon!  Everyone seeking shelter from the downpour. The Moodies will come back to finish the set after the rain stops.
 Forgot the sunglasses and riding on the ferry to CT. Memories crossing the Long Island Sound with John years ago. My #TBT  At The Burger and Lobster restaurant at their new location @ 132 w 43rd St. I'm in heaven!  Here I am with Claudia Upton and Chris Palmerini. I even have a spare for tonight for Jones Beach's concert
 The second half of the day. Dinner with my friend Eve Brandstein. Great catching up...having a meal at The Duck House in Chinatown. Just had fabulous day all around with good friends!  My photo used in the HBO documentary "The Defiant Ones" about Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. I guess my passion for photography paid off! Ha...#jimmyiovine #thedefiantones  Excited to see The Moody Blues tonight at Jones Beach doing Days Of Future Pass...50th anniversary.
