Former Monkee Davy Jones wants it made very clear he would never insult the Beatles. 

” I would never ever in a million years,” he says on the phone from Florida “I was trying to set an image of professional presentation. I never really said they weren’t real.”

In an article dated Jan. 2, the New York Post quoted Jones talking about the Beatles first appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” on Feb. 9, 1964. “Brian Epstein bought the place out. Instead of insurance salesman and their wives, he put fourteen-year-old girls in there. The Beatles were dressed in the same suits, had the Capezio boots on, the same haircut. If you wanna talk manufactured, you’re talking Beatles,” the paper quoted him.
