    I saw them live in Cardiff this year and they were fantastic. Gig was well over 2 hours long, they performed all the classics plus loads of their album tracks, including all of the Head soundtrack. Phenomenal.

My fave was Mickey, yet another early crush lol.
    After Dusty Springfield/or equal - given Dusty was a Stabd Alone singer and The Monkees a Group - they was proably the best of the 1960s

    I was gutted to learn that davey from manchester had passed away a few years back and can never get that picture of him as a young lad out of my mind. Put simply there has been like Ronan Keating, Robbie williams, Gary Barl etc as pin-ups, but the cool looking guy Dave was - I bet both boys and girls loved him for his looks and natural nic-ness and too boot Dave good sing so so naturaly too and made it look beyond easy - just look at that Daydream Believer Video (the Original 60s one) to see how easy Dave makes it appear!

    It just looks like a Music lesson at School (but to pardon the pun - with class-ness added) to the instruments etc

    I saw the repeats in the '80s, and my parents had a "best of" cassette. My favourite was Mike Nesmith with his bobble hat, and he's a pretty credible musician and singer too.

    IIRC Davy Jones & Micky Dolenz were better at acting, and Mike Nesmith & Peter Tork had stronger music skills.

    As I have read though Richard, I think the others thought of Davey as it being his band (though it was'nt) and they where all part of the act. To/for me Davey can probably equal Elvis and The Beatles as the first ever Pin-uo Pop Star.

    Micky Dolenz also created a prototype MTV music show for American TV a bit before that, Kid Video IIRC.

    I grew up on Monkees repeats in the 70s and 80s...
    My mum and dad had a 60s boxed set of vinyls(mail order) that came with a Monkees LP as a free gift. It lived in my room for years. Think I probably still have it in the loft.
    I saw them live in the late 90s in Manchester. Great show .
