Hey, hey, it’s The Monkees
May 17th, 2021 under The Monkees. [ Comments: none ]

Now that people have gotten and are getting the COVID-19 vaccine, bands are getting ready to hit the road again and take the last train to Clarksville. Yesterday, Micky Dolenz and Mike Nesmith broke bread to talk about touring again.

The Monkees were supposed to tour last year, but they had to postpone it because of the pandemic.

Now can we talk about how great they look for being in their mid-70s? I am daydream believing about them now.


A ’60s girl’s Sugar, Sugar dream for the Daydream Believer!

It might be 2017, but Archie Comics is taking it back 50 years. Back to a time when The Monkees were taking over the airwaves and everyone was singing their songs. The Riverdale gang will take the Last Train to Clarksville back to the ’60s, in the fourth edition of the comic book that focuses on the band’s ambitions, to meet the Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.

The Hollywood Reporter did not say what will happen when their worlds collide, so we will just have to buy the graphic novel in January to find out.

This is not the first time The Monkees got animated on paper, they had their own comic that ran from 1967-1969.


Two Monkees and a Ramone!
April 29th, 2013 under Music, The Monkees. [ Comments: none ]

The Monkees sing uplifting music, while The Ramones do not. So when Micky Dolenz Tweeted this picture of him and bandmember Peter Tork with Marky Ramone at the Chiller Convention, I just had to share it with you. Even in music opposites do attract!
Maybe Marky would consider touring with The Monkees since they are still on the road sharing their tunes with the world. You know maybe we can a Monkeeified version of I Wanna Be Sedated or a Rock’n’Ramoned version of I’m a Believer. How awesome would that be? I would pay the big bucks to see that. A girl can be a Daydream Believer, right?


Hey hey, they’re The Monkees and they’re touring again!
August 8th, 2012 under Music, The Monkees. [ Comments: none ]

The Monkees announced today that for the first time since 1997 Michael Nesmith is joining his bandmates on the road. The three surviving band members Mickey Dolenz, Peter Tork and Nesmith will play 12 dates starting in November and you get can get tickets to one of the dozen shows starting on August 18th. And you are going to want to get them because they will be playing their classic hits and some songs that they haven’t played together since the ’60s. Besides playing their groovy music, the night will also feature rare films and one-of-a-kind photographs for the fans to enjoy.
So go bananas for The Monkees all over again and get your tickets for one of the below dates! This Daydream Believer can’t wait for them to take the Last Train to Clarksville, I mean LA!
And I’m a Believer that Davy Jones will be there in spirit with them.

RIP Davy Jones
February 29th, 2012 under Obits, The Monkees. [ Comments: none ]

Davy Jones passed away today at the age of 66 from a heart attack according to TMZ. Davy was best known for being the cute one (at least to me) in the make believe TV band The Monkees who wound up becoming one when the show ended. He was still touring up and making women happy up until last month.
So today honor him by listening to one of his catchy songs from The Monkees and keep his voice alive.
