    They really did have some great songs, irregardless of where those songs came from. Besides, it's not like much of the current pop music isn't fabricated either. I mean...seriously.....:)

    Guess I'm showing my age. I watched the "Monkees" on TV as a teenager. Of course I said it wasn't really me but my little brother. I still sing that "hey hey we're the Monkees" allay when I hear it.

    RIP Davy Jones.

    Gosh we were only talking about him recently. I didn't know any girl who wasn't in love with him and I will always remember him with a smile. :). Rest Well!

    Although I was literally just born when The Monkees came about, 10 years later as a kid, they were my obsession, and I saw them twice in the 90's for the reunion tours when I was already an adult. I'll always have a soft spot for them. I'm sorry to hear of this. I actually somewhere around my house have one of their original albums that an older neighbor from my childhood neighbor gave to me out of niceness. I could sing the lyrics to most of their songs still. Too sad.

    Agreed. Also a Micky fan. Only 66. My god, my dad is 66 too! Too many are dying or are we getting older. Sigh
