From: “Band 6”

Message from Band 6 – 8th June, London, England.

Peter made an appearance as guest of the day on The Big Breakfast on
England’s Channel 4 TV station, live from London.

He wore black denim jeans, black boots and an open-neck black, blue and
yellow/orange shirt. Looked really cool and awake considering it was 7:20 am.

Peter talked with presenter Lisa Tarbuck about the UK tour and how Chris
Conway (described by Peter as a fine acoustic singer/songwriter) will open
the show with a set, followed by James Lee Stanley, followed by
Peter. Then Peter and James will do a set as a duo and finally Chris will
join them on stage for a final song.

As well as promoting the tour Peter spoke about the reality of musicianship
in the Monkees and how all of them are musically talented, the truth about
him leaving the Monkees and NOT buying himself out of the contract, and the
success of the various Monkee re-unions down the years, culminating in the
UK tour of 1997.

After his interview (which also included some flirting with Lisa!) Peter
stayed in the studio and could be seen throughout the remainder of the
programme at various times in other segments, and participated in the
morning reading of national newspaper headlines, holding up the front pages.

He looked gorgeous with his short spiky blond hair and beard and seemed
very relaxed and happy to be on the show.

Last night on the CBS TV movie “Now & Then”, starring Rosie O’Donell, Demi
Moore, Melanie Griffith, Christine Ricci, Rita Wilson, & Other cast
members. There was a bedroom scene where one of the girls was brushing her
hair out and talking, when the song “Daydream Believer” started
playing. Hope you got a chance to see the movie.
