The Monkees showing signs of stress

The Monkees, or at least three-quarters of them, are only three weeks away from the start of the U.K. leg of their reunion tour, but reports have high tension at the rehearsals.

According to a short report in The Sun newspaper, the trio are barely speaking. “It’s nearly impossible to get them to agree on anything. All discussions are via a third party – ‘Mr Dolenz wants this, Mr Tork is insisting on that’. They’re setting up so many obstacles for themselves that their tour looks doomed before it’s even begun.”

None of this is a surprise to those who know the group’s history. Previous reunions have been marred by conflicts, especially between Davy Jones and Peter Tork.

Still, a spokesman for the tour is trying to downplay the reports. “The band members’ requests for the tour are far from unusual. They are all very much looking forward to seeing all their fans again.”

    Oh, great, just great.

    As much as this breaks my heart, I honestly can’t say I’m surprised, given their history over the past reunions.
