    This isn’t the first time they met, there’s a monkee in lots of beatle photos and in A Day in the Life. Mickey’s really the only I kinda like.

    Micky, has a lot of stories, he should write a book. Anyone that hung out with The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix should write a book.

    Peter Tork was cool at the recent Royal Albert Hall concert

  4. Stuart says:

    Agh…forgot to say: Mickey was strangely subdued. I expected him to be this really ebullient, loud, extrovert character but he stayed mostly in the background.

    Mike Nesmith’s solo music is very good.

    Anyone remember Ringos Pizza hut advert with the 3 Monkees? Around the time of Anthology, bless him.

    look for “i’m a believer-my life of monkees,music,and madness by Micky Dolenz&Mark Bego (1993).

    Mickey DID write a book.called ‘I’m A Believer’. There’s a whole chapter on his meeting Paul in 1967 during the Pepper sessions.

    Loved that Pizza Hut ad. I bet you can still see it on YouTube.

  9. CindyB says:

    Yep, remember the ad…and I remember having pics on my wall of Micky and Paul when they met. Bet they shared some good stories in this photo. There was one of Micky and Paul squatted down next to Martha. Cool…….and they did smoke dope that time, too.

    Also want to add…Mike Nesmith did have some good solo work, but he was kind of an ass. His mother invented liquid paper and he always avoided the monkee concerts. They weren’t as close as the Fabs were.

  11. My name's Betty says:

    Well of course they weren’t as close, they were brought together for a TV show.

  12. Chelsea says:

    Haha, that’s exactly what I was going to say. :)

    Being manufactured for a TV show is a bit different than meeting as teenagers and living in squalor in Hamburg for months at a time.

    My 7-year-old daughter has a love for “older music”. The Beatles (and Elvis) are her personal favorites, and she just recently discovered the Monkees. Paul McCartney is her favorite Beatle; Mickey Dolenz is her favorite Monkee. Needless to say, she screamed when she saw this picture!
