How sad to hear of his passing.

The memory of the upbeat TV series sticks in my mind.

Just read it and came to post about it. I don't know why I'm somewhat embarrassed to say it, but I watched the Monkees and enjoyed their music.

By coincidence I watched a program just last week, which was a focus on the sixties pop stars. They interviewed stars from that time now as they looked back at archive film of themselves. The show featured people Cilla Black, Tom Jones, Lulu and Davy Jones. I remeber thinking that he looked the picture of health for his age.

I was never a fan of the Monkees but its sad to hear this.

I remember when it was shameful to admit that you liked the Monkees. Years later I started listening to them again on oldies radio and realized that their songs have a wonderful melodic sense. Later again, I learned that many of those songs were written by Neil Diamond before he started singing his own material. What Neil Diamond doesn't know about melody would fit on the head of a very, very small pin.

Pop quiz #1: Two of the original Monkees were actors. Two were musicians. Which was which?

Pop quiz #2: The mother of one Monkee invented a product that's in wide use today. Name it.

Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith were the musicians I think. I know Peter was.

Don't know the answer to #2.

I guess Davy caught that Last Train to Clarksville. He will be missed for his wry wit and genuinely good singing voice.

Tork is a musician still. He tours with his band "Shoe Suede Blues". Last year they were a featured act at "Super MegaFest / Come Together Fest", a pop-culture, Classic TV, Sci-Tech, Comic Book, Hot Model, groupie / autograph hound event -- [framingham.com...]

i never saw the tv show and didn't follow the band but i did see the 45th anniversary tour show live in july and was amazed at how many recognizable songs they played - happy pop music and nobody looked close to their demise.

That's actually what I meant Lucy but I didn't like to say it. ;)

If you remember this then you must (shall we say) be of a certain age! :)

Tork and Nesmith are musicians. Jammed with them three time over the last 30 years. (Dang! Has it been that long!)

Nesmith is native Texas born. Houston, him, Dallas, me, He's California now, me still Texas. Seven years between us (me on the shy side) and he doesn't do it as much as he used to (music that is). Odd get togethers in places arcane... just a bit of fun and memories, no films or recordings made, and all the ckickens survived (sic).
