When you visit you will see that our site has been built on the
interactive WordPress platform which allows us to do things we could
never do before, connecting the users of the site with each other live
so that they can surf the web as a group. Monkees.Net is now the
worlds biggest 24 hour Monkees party!

First we have added an amazing chat room that you will see at the
bottom of your screen when you arrive. Click on General Chat to meet
other people surfing the site at the same time and make a new friend!
Plus you can setup private chat rooms with a click, and invite your
friends to talk while you check out all the new features of the site.
(You will need to login to the site to chat).

News is a big change with this release, as we have added two news
feeds to the site. Monkees-Alert is our continuing e-mail newsletter
and is now a part of the web site and is searchable through all issues
of this urgent timely newsletter. We also now have the Monkees News
Feed where we place ANY news we can find about the band, interviews,
articles, announcements, photos, anything Monkees related that hits
the web you will get it here.

We have really focused on the idea of meeting people with this design,
so every article allows the user to comment and discuss the topic –
making the site constantly changing and growing. For example, each
Monkees tour date is an article – meaning that you can go to the show
you will be attending and post pre-show meet-ups with other fans,
reviews and set lists related to that exact show. Plus there are
buttons to post favorite articles or shows you will be attending to
FaceBook, Twitter and other sites.

Plus we have a new section for Celebrity articles, and our first guest
writer is Monkees Historian Eric Lefcowitz, author of “Monkee
Business: The Revolutionary Made-For-TV Band” and “The Monkees Tale”.
Fans can for the first time interact with Eric and our other experts
using the comments feature.

In addition to these great features we have a built-in music player
for live Monkees music, a TV set to play Monkees TV clips and videos,
a live photo gallery, plus the things you have come to expect from
Monkees.Net – a large amount of historical articles, lyrics, album
details and a Monkees store.

Please give Monkees.Net a visit, join the site, enter our contest,
have a chat and listen to some tunes while keeping up with the latest
on Micky, Davy, Peter and Michael!

The web address as always is: http://www.monkees.net

Thanks Monkees fans for making us #1 since 1994!

Once again, TiVO comes to the rescue. A show called My Generation was
on our local PBS station. Peter Tork was in their for a short
interview. It was very short, but a very good interview.

A link to the interview is below.

Davy on Dr Phil

The episode aired yesterday, Thurs April 21. David & Jessica were the first
guests. They were discussing their bickering. They took personality tests
(available to anyone at drphil.com) and found they were close in a couple of
areas but very different in a couple of others. Neither good nor bad,
of course,
just different. Dr. Phil told Jessica he wasn’t going to change and she had to
accept that, LOL! Good show. At the end of their segment Dr. Phil handed David
a guitar and he sang them out. He sang a portion of “I’ll Love You Forever” to
Jessica.
