OMG!!!! You guys should’ve stayed for the Missing Links concert yesterday in North Wildwood. Peter was there. The mayor of Wildwood gave him a plaque in honor of the Monkees 40th anniversary. The Monkeemobile was there. My friend Katherine, from MA, sold his merch. Peter jammed with the Missing Links for about 6 or 8 songs (those guys are REALLY great!!). The mayor re-named a portion of 12th Street in Wildwood, “MONKEE WAY”. It was FREAKIN’ INCREDIBLE!!!. Pics to follow (you KNOW I took a bunch). Peter was so sweet to me at the autograph table. Gave me a big hug and signed three things for me (More of the Monkees, ’87 Tour Book, and a photo I bought there (old photo/young Peter – he had a stack for people who hadn’t seen him before and needed something to autograph – I think Katherine sold out of the pics!).

Anyway – rambling – still on a MAJOR Monkees high. Will write a comprehensive review when I get my head out of the clouds.

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HE’S A BELIEVER
By BARBARA HOFFMAN

May 20, 2006 — LEAVE it to a Monkee to write about … evolution? Micky Dolenz – former drummer (and wiseguy) of the ’60s sitcom’s prefab four – enters the kids’ book arena this month with “Gakky Two-Feet,” a lighthearted look at the first biped.

Gakky, a sweet-tempered hominid, gets grief for his prehistoric predilection for walking on two feet when everyone else is gettting around on four. Only when a lion chases him does his tribe realize that bipedalism pays off.

Darwin would have been proud.

“I’ve always wondered what it was like for the first hominid,” Dolenz says.

At Central Park the other day, dressed like a Raider of the Lost Ark, the 61-year-old singer tossed off phrases like “seminal moments in anthropology” and took pains to explain the difference between monkeys, Monkees and apes.

He says a publisher approached him years ago about doing a children’s book – one built around one of the Monkees’ hit songs – “but somehow, I couldn’t come up with an interesting story about a train to Clarksville.” (All together now: “Take the last train to Clarksville/And I’ll meet you at the station/You can be here by 4:30/’cause I paid your reservation, don’t be slow…”)

Instead, Dolenz decided to write about Early Man. Growing up in California, not far from the La Brea Tar Pits, he’d become fascinated by anthropology.

He’d also read his fair share of Kipling’s “Just So” stories and, for good measure, worked with animals on the ’50s TV show “Circus Boy” – where he got in trouble for handing an elephant his candy bar (“At least take the wrapper off first!” the animal trainer yelled.)

“To the average person, there’s little or no difference between monkeys and apes,” Dolenz says, “but if you studied the DNA, there’s only 2 or 3 percent difference between humans and chimpanzees.”

As far as monkeys and Monkees go, he says, there was no connection between the simians and the pop stars.

“Back then, groups just took the name of an animal and spelled it different,” he says. “You never saw the Byrds with birds, or Beatles with roaches, or the Turtles with actual turtles. I guess it was kind of a fad back then.”

Monkee Business Delights Fans 5.3.2006

Wildwood- “That was then, this is now,” sang Micky Dolenz to 3,000 fans who were concentrating more on the then, than the now, at the Fabulous 50s Weekend Salutes the 60s, April 29 at the Wildwoods Convention Center.

The former Monkees drummer, singer, and actor headlined a four-and one-half-hour show that spanned the 60s from The Rip Chords performing their hot rod tunes “409” and “Little Cobra” to the Grass Roots leading sing-alongs of “Midnight Confessions” and “Sooner or Later.”

The red-gowned Crystals brought sweet voices and looks to match, singing their hits “Doo Ron Ron,” and “He Kissed Me.”

Peter Noone, original lead singer for Herman’s Hermits, delighted the crowd with a dozen of the band’s hits. “H-E-N-R-Y” shouted the audience for a sing-along of “I’m Henry the VIII, I Am.”

Noone showed a biting sense of humor, referring to the convention center as an “airplane hangar.” He claimed to be the youngest performer on the bill.

Noone took a couple of potshots at Dolenz and Monkee Davy Jones, joking that Dolenz would ride back to his hotel in an ambulance.

The weekend was all about the Monkees. however. Monkees merchandise sold briskly in the lobby.

The crowd received an unexpected treat when Monkee Peter Tork joined Dolenz on stage for two songs. The pair had not appeared together since a 2001 Monkees tour.

Dolenz played electric guitar throughout the show, a switch from his usual acoustic model. He delighted the crowd by playing drums on “Mary, Mary” and “Circle Sky.”

He acknowledged the song writing talents of Monkee Michael Nesmith, performing two of his compositions. Dolenz’s sister, Coco, took lead vocals on Nesmith’s “Different Drum,” a song he wrote for Linda Ronstadt.

The concert ended at midnight with a line of least 200 fans waiting for Micky Dolenz’s autograph at a book table in the lobby.

On April 30, Tork appeared on 12th Avenue in North Wildwood outside Cool Scoops Ice Cream Parlor for a renaming of the block to Monkees Way. On hand was the Monkees’ customized, 1966 Pontiac GTO convertible and a Monkees cover band called “The Missing Links.”

North Wildwood Mayor Bill Henfey officiated over the ceremonial street renaming.

Cool Scoops owner Paul Russo presented Tork a plaques commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Monkees television series and albums on behalf of the Greater Wildwood Chamber of Commerce.

The weekend’s festivities started on Friday night with Philadelphia radio legend Jerry Blavat holding a well-attended record hop at the convention center.

From: Paul Russo

Hi Brad,

Hi, This is Paul Russo the owner of Cool Scoops Ice Cream Parlor and founder of Super 60’s Sunday.

I hope you were able to enjoy or first 60’s event featuring our beloved Monkees.

I have been a fan for 40 years and when the opportunity came to us to host this reunion / award event we jumped at the chance.

The Missing Links, Americas number one Monkees Tribute Band were fabulous. The original Monkee mobile created by Mr. George Barris was on hand to deliver the Missing Links to the stage. Our fine Mayor Mr. Bill Henfey renamed 12th Ave.. Monkee Way as we presented Mr. Tork his 40th Anniversary plaque.

The most exciting part of the weekend was when I asked Peter Tork if he wanted to go see Micky at the concert hall. He said yes and the rest as we say it..IS HISTORY. This reunion was a surprise to all the concert goers and fans. This will probably be the only reunion the fans will get this year or ever.

I am pleased to have gotten them together for all the fans and especially ME!

Thanks to Micky and Peter for being such great guys.

I am looking forward to doing something like this next year. Stay tuned!

Yours in Coolness,

Paul Russo

From NY Post (the link includes a photo of Micky):

April 29, 2006 — MICKY Dolenz was once a Monkee, but when it comes to grudges, he has a memory like an elephant. The target of his ire is People maga zine, which caught him in the audience at “American Idol” and asked him to compare “AI” and “The Monkees.” “I said, ‘They’re both phenomena, but “American Idol” is a talent show and “The Monkees” was a sitcom,’ ” Dolenz, 61, told The Post’s Barbara Hoffman the other day at the Central Park Zoo. “But the way [the People reporter] put it, I said, ‘AI was about talent, and the Monkees wasn’t.’ Irresponsible journalism!” And yes, he said, he really did play the drums on his records – when they let him.

hi, i was also in wildwood sunday, and i video taped some of peter on stage and him signing autographed and took some still shots as well, i had a great time, i didn’t know he was with micky the night before, i knew micky was there in wildwood doing a show but not peter joining in. now, when i asked peter if he was going to do a monkees 40th he flat out said “no” i said “how about by yourself” and he said “that i will do” then i had him sign my tv guide with the “then and now” article.
it was such a fun day, i met a girl, in line that was before me, i hope her picture turns out, i’m the one who kept saying to her and peter “this is the wedding shot”
i also met the dj’s wife, we sat together on the ground in the front row, she was very cool.
a bunch of us die hard monkees fans are really hoping for some kind of mini reunion before the end of th year. if only the three of them. of if two of them show up in different duets.
we will all be there if they want to do it.

As a life-long fan of the group, I enjoy receiving the email alerts. Just wanted to share that I live in Peter’s hometown and word a couple of years ago was that he was “back” at times to live in the family home. Back in September a band of his played an outdoor concert in town and it was the first time I’d seen him perform in 19 years and it was a thrill. The band was great and the audience loved them. My 5 year old daughter has become a fan and we watch the Monkees on DVD and many of their songs are on my iPod and she knows them all. We recently saw Peter when we were out to dinner and he seems very down to earth and cool.

Hi Group,

I just listened to the complete Andrew Sandoval interview from the 24 hour marathron and he says that they are going to release 40th Anniversary Deluxe 2 CD Editions of all the Monkees albums up to Monkees Present and that it will take about a year to release them all. This interview was done in April. But I heard they were only doing the first 4 albums as the deluxe editions. Does anybody know which is true? Only 4, or up to Monkees Present (8)?

He also said disc one would be the stereo mix plus rare tracks and that disc two would be the mono mix plus rare tracks. Are there mono mixes all the way up to Present? I thought they stopped the mono mixes at Birds and the Bees and the Monkees.

Thanks
Ed

Speaking of Gakky Two-Feet, here’s a link to a great article that appeared in today’s Denver Post. I suspect it may be in other papers as well.

Per Andrew Sandoval over in the Steve Hoffman website, replying to a question about” My Community”: Here’s my answer: That’s not Michael on “My Community.” I can’t discuss Monkees reissues any further than the fact that in late August you will be able to buy the first two (if you want).

Gakky Two-Feet (Micky’s children’s book)

Hi Gang,

I just bought two copies of this (one for my niece’s 4th birthday gift, the
other for my own 2-1/2-year-old daughter), and it took me a little while to
make the connection… The creatures, “hominidees”, look, for all intents and
purposes, far more like monkeys than like early humans. HAR!

Also, Micky names one of the hominidees “Gleeb”, which was cute… Could not
remember what it meant, I had to look it up online today (it was Micky and his
first wife Samantha’s word for “love”)… But I DID know it was some Monkee
or Micky thing I’d heard of before. When I was paging through the book at
checkout, I laughed out loud as I saw that word!

My Borders bookstore (West Windsor, NJ area) had three in stock. Didn’t want
to order it online since I needed one the same day for my niece’s party –
nothing like shopping at the last minute! Seriously though, my niece ADORES books,
and has a gazillion of them already, so it’s impossible to buy her a book she
doesn’t already have, so I pounced on this opportunity, to give her a
newly-released book that I was sure her mother hadn’t even heard of yet! 🙂

It’s cute… although my husband, sister-in-law and I have decided to skip
the word “hominidee” and just say “monkey”. Hey, our girls’ aren’t even in
elementary school yet, we can explain the theory of evolution to them later on…
🙂

“I” To Become Classic TV & Movie Network

The former Pax TV network, now called “i” (that’s it, just “i”), is
metamorphosing into a network devoted entirely to old movies & TV
shows. After signing an agreement last week with Warner Bros. TV for
rights to air a number of “classic” TV shows, “i”, whose parent company
is now called Ion Media Networks (formerly Paxson Communications), has
struck a deal with Sony to air such TV shows as The Monkees, Charlie’s
Angels, & Silver Spoons, & such movies as Short Circuit, A River Runs
Through It, & the Academy Award-winning musical Oliver. The network
claims it has a potential audience of 92 million, including those who
can receive it on its owned broadcast stations & on cable.

Rhino Expands First Two Monkees Albums
July 07, 2006, 3:30 PM ET
Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

Rhino has set an Aug. 15 release date for expanded editions of the first two albums from TV stars turned pop idols the Monkees. Both will be issued as two-disc packages including stereo and mono mixes plus rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks.

1966’s “The Monkees,” which spent 13 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard album chart, sports previously unreleased alternate mixes of “Papa Gene’s Blues” and “The Kind of Girl I Could Love,” a version of “I Don’t Think You Know Me” with Micky Dolenz on vocals, a jingle for Kellogg’s and a demo for “Propinquity (I’ve Just Begun To Care).”

The following year’s “More of the Monkees” was even more successful than its predecessor, spending 18 weeks at No. 1. Among the bonus tracks are “Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)” with narration by Peter Tork, the first recorded version of “Valleri,” an alternate take of “Tear Drop City” and a different mix of “I’m a Believer.”

Owing to a history of inter-band acrimony, the Monkees last toured with all four original members in 1997. Minus Nesmith, Dolenz, Tork and Davy Jones subsequently hit the road on several occasions but have no plans to work together in the future.

“I would not work with those guys again if my life depended on it,” Jones recently told Scripps Howard News Service. “I can’t be responsible for their attitudes and the way they treat people.”
