Finally The Monkees get a Musical!!!
September 6th, 2008 under Broadway, The Monkees. [ Comments: none ]

Abba and Billy Joel have had their music turned into musicals and now finally The Monkees are getting one according to Broadway World.

According to press notes the story tells the journey of four musicians who “unwittingly become stand-ins for the most famous group in the world. It is a nostalgic trip down memory lane for those who remember the TV series”. It includes hits such as “I’m a Believer”, “Steppin’ Stone”, “Hey, Hey We’re The Monkees”, “Last Train to Clarksville”, and of course, “Daydream Believer”.

Daydream Believer will open a year from now at the Theatre Royal Plymouth. I know it is a whiles away, but I hope it is good enough to make it to Broadway because I have always loved their music. Maybe John Mayer could play Michael Nesmith’s role, he kind of reminds me of him!


Remember Davy Jones?

Words of advice for Davy Jones, keep the shirt closed. I mean his chest is not bad for a 62 year old man, but these are not his Monkees days that were 40 years ago.

Remember The Monkees’ Mickey Dolenz?

I wonder what happened to Mickey Dolenz, now I know! I wish they would bring The Monkees back for syndication because it was great cheesey fun!

For a little man, Davy Jones is a big d!ck

Rhino has set an Aug. 15 release date for expanded editions of the first two albums from TV stars turned pop idols the Monkees. Both will be issued as two-disc packages including stereo and mono mixes plus rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks.
1966’s "The Monkees," which spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart, sports previously unreleased alternate mixes of "Papa Gene’s Blues" and "The Kind of Girl I Could Love," a version of "I Don’t Think You Know Me" with Micky Dolenz on vocals, a jingle for Kellogg’s and a demo for "Propinquity (I’ve Just Begun To Care)."
The following year’s "More of the Monkees" was even more successful than its predecessor, spending 18 weeks at No. 1. Among the bonus tracks are "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)" with narration by Peter Tork, the first recorded version of "Valleri," an alternate take of "Tear Drop City" and a different mix of "I’m a Believer."
Owing to a history of inter-band acrimony, the Monkees last toured with all four original members in 1997. Minus Nesmith, Dolenz, Tork and Davy Jones subsequently hit the road on several occasions but have no plans to work together in the future.
"I would not work with those guys again if my life depended on it," Jones recently told Scripps Howard News Service. "I can’t be responsible for their attitudes and the way they treat people."



Jealous, is he?
June 22nd, 2006 under The Monkees. [ Comments: none ]

MONKEES frontman DAVY JONES has launched astonishing attack on dead rockers KURT COBAIN, JIMI HENDRIX, ELVIS PRESLEY and JANIS JOPLIN, questioning why society worships people who wasted their lives. The 61-year-old I’M A BELIEVER singer insists they wouldn’t have been idolised if they were still alive. Jones says, "I don’t have a lot of respect for people like Jimi Hendrix, or Kurt Cobain, or Janis Joplin or Elvis Presley, because they all killed themselves in one way or another. "Although I often wonder what they’d be doing now if they were still alive. Would they be these crumbling lookalikes of the same people, greeting people at the entrance of Caesar’s Palace?"
