No, I am not speaking of my boys, although they have been referred to as that by me in the past. I am, speaking of The Monkees.
You know, the one with Davy Jones and well, the rest of those guys who weren’t quite as cute as Davy Jones. Can you tell I had a teenage crush? Those other guys, Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith are part of the group as well.
Those guys, anyway are hosting a 45th anniversary tour. 45 years…..geez that makes me feel old –not that I was anything but a teeny bopper when they were at the height of their popularity, but still……
The Monkees are however for this tour, one monkey short. Mike Nesmith is not touring with the band, instead he has chosen to escape the limelight and lives, very much under the radar in California. Nesmith’s mother was the person who invented what came to be known as Liquid Paper which she sold for 30 million pounds to Gillette.
The other guys seem to be having a ball performing live for their fans.
