Bill Chadwick was associated with The Monkees as a songwriter, TV show extra, studio musician, and confidant of the group throughout its initial run in the 1960s. Bill was a regular along with Michael Nesmith at the Ledbetter’s club in Los Angeles and the Troubadour in Hollywood during the pre-Monkees era. Both were soon part of a folk group called The Survivors that was assembled by Randy Sparks, who also founded The New Christy Minstrels. Bill auditioned for The Monkees in 1965, making it past the initial round of interviews and being one of the few to participate in an actual screen test with Bob Rafelson, but ultimately was not selected. In 1969, Bill released a single on Dot Records, “Talking to the Wall”/”If You Have the Time.” Both tracks were produced by Michael Nesmith, and Nesmith later recorded his own version of “Talking to the Wall” for his 1972 album ‘Tantamount To Treason Volume 1.’
