    Wow

    RIP UNCLE MANNY!


    Manny Roth

    Manny Roth (born 1918, died 2014) is a former influential New York City nightclub owner and entertainment entrepreneur. Manny Roth owned the famous New York establishment Cafe Wha?. In the early 1960s, Cafe Wha? provided a stage for amateur acts such as Bob Dylan and Bill Cosby. Manny Roth is an uncle to David Lee Roth who began his career in entertainment with the band Van Halen in 1974.


    Cafe Wha? in Greenwich Village
    Some biographical information as well as some of Manny's stories are chronicled in Crazy From The Heat, an autobiographical book by David Lee Roth.

    Manny built Cafe Wha? with his bare hands in 1959. As he said once, "I used the last $100 I had to buy a truckload or so of broken marble with which to make the floor." That broken marble floor is still there to this day. The Club has remained much the same since its opening except there is no longer a bathtub on the stage! There was no liquor sold at Cafe Wha? on its inception. Like many of the little dark Clubs in Greenwich Village at the time they mostly served coffee, tea and perhaps small bites and sandwiches.

    It quickly became the hangout for all types of Folk Singers, Artists, Poets, Beatniks and Anarchists of the time. Alan Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and the like were there. Mary Travers, of the band Peter, Paul & Mary was a waitress there at one time. It was renowned as the meeting spot for all things 60s in the "Village"

    Manny Roth was David's first guest on "The David Lee Roth Show", a morning drive CBS Radio program which premiered January 3, 2006 (the show ended April 21, 2006). Manny guested during the 8:00am to 10:00am hours during the first day of the show and spoke much of his years in entertainment. Manny told first person accounts of meeting Jimi Hendrix, Richard Pryor (whom Manny affectionately called "Richie"), Bob Dylan, and Bill Cosby among others.

    I'd like to go on the record and say , that the Cafe Wha? gig should be released in a pro format . There's just so much historic meaning to that show !

    I'm about to lose yet another family member myself , and I sympathize with the Roth clan . Yet ... this gig was about what they , and we , are all about IMO . It almost begs for it .

    RIP Manny. My thoughts are with you, Dave and the Roth Family. Your toast to your Uncle Manny at the Cafe Wha in 2012 was ever so touching.







    Will Dave read this?

    I dont really give a fuck.




    My condolonces, Dave.

    Manny Roth didn't die, Manny Roth lived.



    My condolences to Dave and the rest of the Roth family. He was clearly an inspiration for Dave and countless others..
