    He’d leave little notes for himself saying ‘You are not a chicken,’ although sometimes he thought he hwas lying.

    He was the little one. I knew that just from looking at the name! Man. I just bought my mom an iPod Shuffle for her birthday and I put a bunch of Monkees tunes on it.

    Everyone knows this by now, probably, but I just wanted to add that the "malcontent", Peter Nesmith, supposedly didn't hang out with the other Monkees because his mom invented Liquid Paper and he didn't really need the work the way the other guys did. Jones and Micky Dolenz continued to trade on the name for years after the show ended. I loved the show when it was in syndicated re-runs I was a kid, and the black mark that was the All New Monkees did not damp my enthusiasm.

    Davy Jones is the one who forced David Bowie to be David Bowie.
    Things can always be worse.

    Chekov was added to the Star Trek cast to appeal to the Monkees demographic and had to sport a Davy Jones style wig, which Walter Koenig loathed.

    Edit: Michael Nesmith put out a couple of quality records and has a compilation, entitled "Compilation," that is worth tracking down.

    Wow, weird. Because of the book we're reading in class, we discussed The Monkees (they're mentioned several times) and even listened to Daydream Believer. Had no idea he died until right now.
