Micky Dolenz appears on the cover of the latest issue of VINTAGE
DRUMMER magazine. The magazine features many photos of Micky behind
the drum kit, past and present, a very nice article on the drum kits
he used throughout the ’60s in the studio and on tour, as well as an
interview with Micky. Featured in the layout is a never before seen
photo of the Monkees live in Japan in 1968, courtesy of Micky’s
private collection. The magazine is available at Barnes and Noble
and Tower Records, but if you can’t find it, you can order it
directly through their website at http://vintagedrummer.com.%20You%20can
also see a picture of the cover on the website.

Hi all,

I just got back from the Rockers on Broadway charity concert that
took place on May 3, 2004 at the Arlene’s Grocery rock club in NYC.
The concert was a benefit
for the Broadway Cares AIDS charity. The concert featured several
pop/rock vocalist who are currently in some running Broadway shows,
including ‘Rent’, ‘Assassins’, ‘Aida’, and the upcoming Queen
musical.

Micky Dolenz took part in the concert performing two songs: the
Spencer Davis Group’s “Give Me Some Lovin'” in the first half of the
show, then after a short intermission, Micky rocked the house
with “I’m A Believer”. Micky was very energetic for both songs and
wowed the crowd in the packed club. He wore a black satin shirt and
looked great. The rest of the show featuring the other performers
was equally wonderful.

Micky granted an interview for my friend for his Broadway website,
and my friend promised to send me the transcript of the interview to
share with the group. From the interview, Micky expressed how much
fun he’s having on Broadway in ‘Aida’ and plans to relocate in New
York and concentrate on developing a career on the Broadway stage.
My friend suggested to Micky that he should try out for the Roger
DuBris role in ‘The Producers’. Micky liked the idea and said he’ll
see about pursuing it. I bought along my copy of his ‘Broadway
Micky’ CD (which I felt was appropo for the occasion) and got to
speak to Micky briefly, telling him how much I enjoyed his
performance in ‘Aida’, and he was gracious enough to sign the CD
cover.

The concert was a success and raised $2,000 for the charity. Rockers
on Broadway may become a regular monthly event. If Micky gets
involved in more shows, I’ll let folks know.

(A little footnote: Peter Tork had played the Arlene’s Grocery venue
a few years ago with Shoe Suede Blues.)
