THE MONKEES MINUS ONE ARE BACK ON TOUR

Three fourths of The Monkees need the money so they’re going back on tour in the UK. Peter Tork, 69, Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones, both 65, will be back on “The Last Train to Clarksville” this spring. Mike Nesmith left the group in 1971 and never looked back, in spite of fans protests. He had family money (his mother invented white-out and sold at the right time) and got into country rock and his own group. Every few years the other guys reunite for some concerts without him.

    Wasn’t there a rumor that they didn’t actually sing or play instruments? They were a favorite of mine when I was very young so thank you Janet for this story. Oh, and is it me or is Davey Jones still cute?

    Mine too but seriously? They can’t really play. This is going to be a nostalgia tour only.

    Mickey Dolenz always had a cool voice. I remember reading a rumor years ago about Davy Jones had a boyfriend briefly (a few months) and that it didn’t work out. I have no idea whether that is accurate or not. Just wondering if anyone else had read it too. I had read something similar to that about Paul Stanley having had a quick fling with a young guy. Next thing I know he is dating a lady again and the boyfriend is never brought up again. Regardless, I love Paul Stanley’s (and Kiss) music.

    Wonder if Mike Nesmith was ever guilty of sniffing the whiteout. lol

    Michael Nesmith is the man. Checkout Elephant Parts on youtube. Still hilarious after 35 years. Rodaane.
    Dolenz is front and center in many of the Monteray pop festival pro pics.
    The monkey mobile. What a cool modified G.T.O.
    Kitsch. Could not watch the show even as a kid. It was too lame.
    Of that genre and time I always felt Paul Revere and the Raiders laid it down great with KicKs.
    Twenty five years now since their last big reunion tour.
    Times a flyin eh!

    Of course the Monkees can play their instruments and sing. Watch some docs on them and learn about them instead of reading the old propaganda. They were all in the music biz before the Monkees.

    Michael Nesmith will always be my favorite Monkee. He is wise to stay away and continue his own path and maintaining some dignity.

    They finally look their ages yet they still get girls falling over themselves to bed them. I’m certain Davy’s wife will keep an eye on him as she has been known to beat the hell out of him should he misbehave. Micky’s wife might stay home and turn a blind eye to his philandering.

    I’ve seen them (it was 1996; I keep my stubs!) and they were extremely fun (lots of families), tight as a bad and had really good harmonies.

    It was a last minute invite and having written their fan club (I loved Mickey, the funny man), it was quite a great surprise.

    What they were that got them dissed was a “put together” band. The TV show assembled them and I don’t know who did the music, but they didn’t play together or know each other before then. The TV show WAS horrible, but the music took off and made them very popular and famous. There was a lot of good music in that time frame and good bands popping up all over the place. None of this “autotuned” crap of today, either you COULD sing, or you sunk quickly! Period!
    I can’t imagine a Britney Spears back then, she’d be bood off the stage and rotten tomatos would be hailed upon her until she dropped her non-working mic and bailed.

    Reta, Hear Hear! My own teens can’t stand their gens music and listen to good old rock, Beatles, etc. I can’t believe the talentless hacks nowadays, they don’t play music, they can’t sing. I don’t think they’re even good looking.

    georgie: Britney Spears is one of the poorest examples of a performer today, and as you said, completely NOT good looking. Her neck is so thick it looks like a truck driver! Very unfeminine!

    I used to love the Monkeys! Davy Jones was my favorite, he was so cute. I didn’t know Mike’s mother had invented white out, they must be millionaires. It would be nice if they all got together even if it were just to do a special reunion show.

    As long as they are having fun and meeting people and making friends and it is good to be around people and talk and get to know other people from all over the world.

    When something works well why give it up and there are people all over the world that enjoy the music and are still fans of the show and why not and get paid to play and have fun and sing the songs the way you want and what works well for other people completely.

    I love The Monkees! I hate Davy’s last wife, that fat, ugly, no talent, psycho whore Jessica Pacheco who beat the crap out of him all the time. POS!I still love their music! The music today sucks the big one!!Davy was the best teen idol of all time! Please do NOT tell me he had a boyfriend at one time, I don’t want to know! !!!!
