I liked the Monkees also. I think they got a raw deal from the industry, press and some fans. I didn't watch the TV show in the mid 60s but happened to catch a rerun a few years ago. I was laughing out loud. It was clever and quite funny.

I remember girls on my school bus, urgently passing around a "Petition" from Tiger Beat or some such magazine to keep the Monkees on the air.  
This was serious stuff in '67.

Always liked these guys.

Very sad news,
had the chance to watch the Monkees on TV at a friends house saturday afternoons.
To my memories there has been a Monkees Hollywood Movie launched few years ago.
R.I.P Michael Nesmith ,
this one is from a Monkees Fan.

When I heard the news two days ago...As I read about Michael Nesmith passing, the song I'm a Believer instantly started playing in my head, one of very few songs that I know all the lyrics.

Many 60s TV shows had their own car!

Labor Day weekend 1967, A bunch of us in our USAF tech school in Rantoul, IL went to the NHRA U.S. Nationals Drag Race in Indianaoplis. The Monkees were a featured attraction between rounds of competition and they drove the Monkee Mobile up and down the track with all four in it at a safe speed of course.
I went by where they were signing autographs but the line was so long that I went back to watching the racing.
I told my grandkids about this once and they thought I was joking. Yea right !!

The Monkees aside, I always had the utmost respect for Mike Nesmith for his
song writing. "Different Drum" by The Stone Poneys(Linda Ronstadt) always comes to mind.
Here's a link to his songs and the people who recorded them.
