    Mike Nesmith, at least, was (is) genuinely talented.

    Were the Monkee's a band before their tv show or afterwards?

    I heard they were a spoof band inspired by the Beatles

    I could be wrong there

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    They were a band at the same time as the TV show, & carried on releasing music after the programme finished.

    I heard that before about Mike Nesmith's Mum inventing correction fluid. Supposedly one of the reasons he rarely took part in their reunions was because he had inherited her fortune & didn't need the money.

    Mike could have stayed with the band using his inheritance to put on the odd free show on tour

    Last Train to Clarks Ville for me (assuming the Monkee's sang it)

    IIRC it was a Monkee's song

    I reckon that The Monkees, however they first came together, had some decent hits.
    Much, much better than a lot of the modern plastic stuff that comes from present day "made up" bands.
    And will still be getting played long after that stuff is forgotten.
