I have just seen the new DVD for “Daydream Believers – The Monkees Story”
which was just released Tuesday and it is hilarious – the three
commentaries by Davy Peter and Micky are great, but especially the one by
Micky which is fall on the floor funny, the others are more subtle but also=

priceless. There are also live video interviews with the three in the
studio where they recorded the commentaries. It’s great – highly recommende=

Hi Brad

Thanks to the e-mail that I get sent to me from you, I found out that the
Monkees were playing at CasinoRama.
I immediately went out to get tickets and after 35 years I
finally got to see my beloved Mickey in person.
I must say though, that I have a whole new respect for Davy, he was just
awesome at the concert, as was Mickey, of course.
I thought it was so great of them to sign autographs after the show and I
waited in line for one and I was about half way there when it was announced=

that they would only be signing for 15 more minutes…( I was panicked )
I made it though (thank goodness!) but there was only one downfall, they
actually posed for us for a picture but our flash didn’t go off..just our
luck. But we did get a couple of pictures.
I’m still in awe that I was actually 5 feet away from Mickey!!
Thanks for your e-mails, without it I probably wouldn’t have got to see
them. Please keep them coming and I’ll keep my eye out for them coming to=

Ontario again!

Thanks again,

I so wanted to go see Davy and Micky at Casino Rama, but I was just too
sick to go. It would have made a perfect birthday present for me too,
since my birthday was January 4th. I have been reading the reports from
some of those who did make it to see them though and it sounds like I
missed another great show. I do have memories of seeing the guys in
person though. I never got to see them when I was a teenager back in
the sixties, but in 1989, they came to a local venue in Kitchener,
Ontario, called Lulu’s Roadhouse, and my high school friend and I
finally got to see them after waiting more than 20 years. The show was
great, but unfortunately, we were only able to leave with pictures and
our memories of seeing them. Little did I know that in 1990, Davy would
be returning to that same venue for a solo concert. This time I took my
15 year old daughter Tammy with me (she had gone from Motley Crue to the
Monkees!!), and after the concert, as we were about to drive away from
the parking lot, we saw a limo drive in, so we followed it behind the
place. What luck! We managed to be in the right place at the right
time, and there we were, outside the back door of the building waiting
for Davy to come out. We talked to his driver for awhile, and the
driver asked us if we wanted to drive Davy back to his hotel. If I’d
known where the heck it was, we would have taken him up on the offer
(although I’m sure he was joking). Anyways, Davy finally came out, and
he was soooooooo cute. We talked to him briefly, got his autograph and
a hug and he left. We were so excited, that I had forgotten that I had
my camera in the car! But we were destined to meet Davy in the same
place, again! Two years later, he was back, and we knew just where to
go this time after the concert. This time, a man (I think possibly a
body guard) asked us if we wanted to meet Davy. Of course we said yes!
This time, we came prepared. I remembered my camera. We got talked to
Davy again, told him how much we loved the show, and he autographed our
copies of “They Made a Monkee Out of Me”, we got a hug and a kiss, and
then we asked another fan who was also there, if she would take our
picture with Davy for us. After we said our goodbye’s, just as Davy was
getting into his car, my daughter spoke to him again, saying only his
name, “Davy!”, he didn’t hear her at first, then she spoke it again,
“Davy!”. This time, he turns and looks at her, and says “yes?”. Tammy
then tells him “you’ve got a nice bum!”. He politely says thank you and
gets into his car and leaves for his hotel (now we know where the hotel
is). Both of those occasions were very special to me because my
daughter was sharing a life long dream I had of meeting Davy. It is
sure to be a story that will be told to my grandchildren one day, and it
is a memory that I will keep close to my heart forever.
