The Last Days of a Great Guitar Shop: RIP Manny's Music Store
Binky Philips, Rock's Backpages, May 2009
AFTER 75 YEARS, Manny's Music Store on West 48th St in Manhattan will close its doors forever at the end of this month. Obviously, this is not even a cigar butt on the world's stage of Economic Fallout these days. But, for me personally, and The History of Rock'n'Roll, this is akin to GM going under.
