Manny's is going to be closing down. Yes this is THE Manny's. The famous music store that has had dozens of celebrities to walk through it's doors on 48th street. Clapton and Hendrix got their wah pedals here, Guns and Roses filmed Paradise City there, James Brown cruised through those doors, The Beatles visited on their visits to the U.S.A.

This icon of music shops is closing their doors sadly. Thoughts?

That sucks. Someone with a lot of money like Bill Gates or someone famous and involved like Eric Clapton himself should buy it and preserve it. No doubt, Clapton could keep it running off his own money. He sold a guitar for nearly a milllion dollars, but that went to charity, so he could probably get money to keep this historical store.

Grr. Hopefully we can find an investor.

Anyone know any famous musicians?

I have Jim West's phone number.
He's Weird Al's guitarist (after Rick Derringer (yes Rick Derringer was once Weird Al's guitarist))

EDIT: We can call up Jim West, I mean he knows Weird Al, and Weird Al knows everyone, he spoke to Kurt Cobain, so he can probably talk to some good folk and get it back. Most likely not, but its worth a try. I dont wanna call though.

Does anyone else know anyone who could possibly help since I doubt any of us have the power to do so. I'm too young to buy anything or really do anything which is why I'd like to not call anyone.

holy LOL I can't believe this

Go away you fat cow.

I doubt a concert would help at all. It's a store, not a friggin country. We lack all the possible power to get rockstars together. However, I could get my band to play and benefit Manny's if someone like Weird Al started to sponsor a movement. Otherwise I'd be afraid the money would go to waste and people who donated would be let down.

Haha, I was just saying, Weird Al has connections to a lot of people. I was just saying he once talked to Kurt Cobain, so Al can most likely talk to other peeps. I know he has talked to Led Zeppelin multiple times. And I know a guy who sounds excactly like Robert Plant. His YouTube name is JamesNorthernVA. With a lot of effort this might work.

We could easily make a few hundred dollars, and in a benefit like this, all of it helps.
