I checked my listings for Dolenz related stuff late last night I saw
“Malpractice” listed ! Even has it listed too!
It will be on March 18th at 9pm on Lifetime. Here is the decription of it:
Starring: Gabrielle Carteris, Stephanie Zimbalist, Ritchie Montgomery,
Marcus Flanagan, Michael Arata, John McConnell
After the tragic death of a child during surgery, prominent surgeon Dr. Ken
Garrett is unable to cope, and stays home while his wife Beth, a lawyer,
supports the family. When a nurse from the same surgical team hires Beth to
represent her in a wrongful death suit against the same hospital, a series
of ominous coincidences cause Beth to become suspicious — not of the
hospital, but of her client.
Sounds interesting?

This is an update on Nesmith projects from

Hi Derek,
That’s a whole lot of questions. I hope I answer them all. Rays has been
postponed although Nez is still working away on it and moving forward
nicely. It just keeps getting better which each new addition. There is no
date set so we’ll just have to wait and see. We’re also working away on the
audio book of “The Long Sandy Hair of Neftoon Zamora” and hoping we’ll have
that ready sometime in the first half of the year. As far as I know we
don’t have any plans to release “Dr. Ducks” or “Television Parts”, although
it’s been discussed on numerous occasions. I’ve also never heard of “The
Crystal Ball” but that doesn’t mean much. Nez always has so many wonderful
projects he’s working on that I have a hard time keeping up. I haven’t
heard of any plans to do another 2 for 1 CD. They do do a good job though
and I agree with you about “Infinite Rider” and “Photon Wing”, I think
those two would work well together. I hope that answer everything. Thanks
for your support. 🙂

From: “Christopher Pick”


Williamsport, PA-based recording artist “Chris” released THANK YOU FOR THE
MUSIC for John Lennon’s 20th Memorial, December 8, 2000. Since July 2001,
the song has been hovering in the TOP 20 in Australia. The song recently
reached #1 on the KAOS FM charts (part of the Ison Live Radio global
network). KAOS FM gets requests from as far away as England. This song
was recently replaced by another Chris hit on the KAOS FM charts. THANK
YOU FOR THE MUSIC was premiered on KOL-THE VOICE OF ISRAEL in the Holy City
of Jerusalem.

Recorded in studios around the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania, the
production features a Ludwig drumset with pearloid finish, tuned to
replicate the classic drum sound of Ringo Starr. The melodic McCartney-like
bass line is played on a Rickenbacher bass, filling out the Beatle-ific
rhythm section. “I even scooped octaves like Paul,” says producer/musician
Johnny J Blair, a frequent collaborator with Davy Jones of The Monkees
(whose legacy owes a debt to The Beatles). Blair’s own “sound” has been
critically endorsed by Beach Boy Brian Wilson, Christian recording artist
Larry Norman, and Euro-pop legend and rock pioneer Cliff Richard. The
cover features a picture of the famous John Lennon Wall in Prague, Czech

A Clapton/Harrison-esque lead is cranked out by former David Rose Band
guitarist Tim Breon (Davy Jones’ studio guitarist and engineer). “Small
world,” notes Blair, “David Rose gigged with Yoko Ono and we get his
guitarist jamming on a Lennon tribute.”

Adding vocal power to the chorus are Monette Newsuan (Davy Jones’ favourite
gospel singer, whose music has even been critically endorsed my country/pop
sensation LeAnn Rimes) and Cassie Blair of the Unity Christian Fellowship
Gospel Singers. Monette, Cassie, and Johnny appear on this project
courtesy of Fire Inside-Davy Jones Productions.

Basically a 5-song EP with three remixes, the CD also features the lucious
COULD IT BE FOREVER? — Sure to be a hit at weddings. The song is based
on two of Davy Jones’ most beautiful recordings (I’LL) LOVE YOU FOREVER and
WE WERE MADE FOR EACH OTHER. Upon first hearing Chris’ early vocal demo of
IT BE FOREVER?, producer Blair remarked “It’s ‘Love You Forever’ Part 3.”
Jones gave a favorable response when he heard
COULD IT BE–a blessing to CHRIS, being a long-time fan of Jones’ music in
and outside The Monkees. The song was recently released in Australia for
Valentine’s Day – becoming another TOP 20 hit for Chris.

There was a CD review featured in the March 23 2001 issue of GOLDMINE!
magazine (the Lennon issue). This review can now be found on Al
Aronowitz’s (aka THE BLACK-LISTED JOURNALIST who introduced Bob Dylan to
The Beatles) webpage:

Chris’ tribute to the late George Harrison, “An Artist Remembers Harrison”
(which features the making of THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC), can be found at

This news is indirectly Monkees-related, but I hope you can still post it.

If you live near New York City, you’re invited to the premiere of a new
play “Star Collector”, written by me, on March 14-24 (Fridays, Saturdays
and Sundays) at the Sande Shurin Studio theatre (311 West 43rd St, Suite
602), produced by American Playwrights Theatre. Yes, the play was named
after the Monkees song, and the director wants to use the song as the
pre-show music. The play is about a fictitious 50 year old former teen
idol on an oldies tour, and a middle-aged fan sneaks into his hotel room to
meet him. The play was inspired by a Teen Idols concert. Some fans and I
stayed in the same hotel as the band, and we kept running into Davy in the
halls and the restaurant. The play is part of an evening of five short
plays, “Dissonant Doubles”, in honor of Women’s History Month. For
information and reservations call 212-560-2477.
