I never got to see the Monkees in concert. They toured last year (briefly) in honor of the 45th anniversary of the show but I didn't get to go. They were never in my area.

RIP Davy.....

So sorry to hear about this. I loved the Monkees' shows & music. Davy was a big part of that.

Gone too young...

bobby said...

Ditto,

Loved watching the Monkees as a kid.

I guess there is no chanch of Davy performing at Marsha Brady's Grandaughters high school dance now either.

I read in the crazy conspiracy guy's story that the Monkees were every bit as talented musicians as the Byrds and other start up bands of the time.

Darn it, Bobby. All you talk about is Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!I'm so tired of it. It's unfair.

Sincerely,
Jan Brady

Didn't Manson reportedly try out for a part in the Monkees TV show?

I read that somewhere. Don't know if there's any truth to it.

Wouldn't that be a hoot if Manson was cast in the show? LOL.

Great come back Venus LOL

Manson did Not try out, the dates dont work. He was in jail at the the time.

Thanks Bobby. I figured that was bogus. I don't even remember where I read that.

I really don't like this new commenting format. I liked the old one better.

Agreed, all the blogger ones are now like this.

why would they fix something that ain't broke

CarolMR said...

Wasn't Peter Tork a regular guest at Mama Cass' house (like everyone else in Hollywood)? Didn't he even meet Manson?
In any case, RIP, Davy Jones.

Local radio host's this morning were talking about what a jerk Davy was on an interview. They asked him where his income was coming from: residuals from the monkees ? touring ?. Daving got mad told them none of their business. They arued a little and Davy say's to the radio guy " I hope you get cancer " To which the radio host responded i aready did.

I guess when they were doing their reunion tour all three traveled seperatly on their own bus. Even then they couldnt finish the tour.

of course this is their version and opinion on him. I always thought he was nice guy. Lots of people are telling me now that they have heard he was very arrogant.

Anyway I have fond memories of watching and listening to Hey hey were monkee's.

katie8753 said...

Wow Bobby. I'd never heard anything about Davy, good or bad. I just assumed he was easy to work with because he was..well.....just so CUTE. LOL.

Venus said...

Bobby, I'm glad you "got" the Jan Brady reference. I'd actually written a longer respnse, but changed it to "short and sweet" (jus tlike me, haha) before posting. I figured Katie would've been all over that comment! LOL

I've always heard that Davy was such a nice guy, but I guess everyone can have their breaking point. Some interviewers an be so rude.

I don't think that they got any $ from residuals. Before 1969, they got paid for just a few (maybe 10 at the most??) reruns of each show and that was it. Things have changed.....

bobby said...

Bobby, I'm glad you "got" the Jan Brady reference.

Shows my age. lol.

I wasnt sure if I should share what I heard this morning about Davy. I didnt what to upset anyone who may be a real fan but, I found it interesting and decided to take the chance.

bobby said...

An internet search on Davy Jones & nice, brings up a million hits.

Now I wish I didnt listen to the radio on the way to work this morning.lol

Venus said...

I heard Monkees/Davy Jones memoriabilia has skytrocketed in price on internet auction sites. There's always someone out to cash in on a tragedy.

I know what you meant aboutt he age thing, Bobby. I remember watchig the show when it originally aired.

In the 1980's, when I was babysitting for a neighbor, her kids were watching it when MTV started airing the reruns. I mentioned that I'd watched the show when I was their age and one of the kids said, "You must be old!" It made my day....NOT! LOL

katie8753 said...

I saw on a Brady Bunch special that the oldest Brady boy (Greg?) had an affair with Florence Henderson in real life while they were filming the series.

Carol Brady was a "cougar". HA HA.

disillusioned said...

Glad they brought the Brady Bunch back in my area. Used to write to Maureen McCormicks(?) fan club.. She used to be hot..not so much now... ;)

Matt said...

Yup, that's the one! Damn do I have descent recall or what? 45 years and I almost got all of the words right! HA!

katie8753 said...

I used to watch the Monkees every week without fail, and I couldn't even begin to describe one episode.

Hmmm.....

The only thing I remember about the Brady Bunch is they had a 2 story house, and they had a live-in maid. I couldn't understand why they needed a maid because the mom didn't work.

Matt said...

Well that Davey Jones line sent me into a laughing fit that nearly resulted in wet pajamas. It continued all weekend. My parents thought I had lost it. Never forgot it ... and that was in the JOHNSON administration. LOL.

katie8753 said...

Matt LOL.

I think the reason I don't remember the episodes of The Monkees is because all I could think of when I watched it was that Davy & Peter were just so dang cute.

Didn't Mickey Dolenz play "boy" on Tarzan or something when he was little?

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Hi Matt.

I must say... that IS a damn fine memory, you have there!

Your quote was so spot-on, it took me only 3 minutes to find the episode!
AHahahaha

(and I had never seen it before!) LOL

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

Folks...

If you're ever in a police line-up...
You definitely don't want Matt walking into the room, to ID suspects!
LOLOL

Matt said...

My wife says we had a complete conversation two days ago about me bringing home some bottled water. I have no memory of it.

LynyrdSkynyrdBand said...

LOL

Your memory is like my eyesight.

I can spot an eagle at 500 yards... but, I can't read a soup can!
LOLOL
