    A Sad Childhoood Too

    I too had a very sad, neglective and abusive childhood, but the Monkees gave me a way of escaping that.  Now I have the Monkees on both DVDs and VHS and whenever feel I need a good laugh  and great music to feel better, I watch them.

    See You Later Davy

    Not gone just away. In my p.o.v. Mike Nesbitt sums it up best; "All the lovely people. Where do they all come from?" began a statement from the Monkees ' guitarist, who was as shocked as anybody to learn that the 66-year-old Jones had died today after suffering a heart attack...

    I Have Been Crazy About Them For Years

    Recently, I have not been able to get the song "Star Collector" out of my mind.  It is just such a great one!  Now, I hope that all of the readers of this hum it all day, too!  ;-)

    Musical & Entertaining

    I grew up with the TV show making a re-emergence on MTV for the groups's anniversary.  MTV would have these lengthy marathons, paying tribute to a band that brought musical entertainment to TV regularly far before MTV's existence. I had watched the show before that, though...

    The Monkees Kept Me Sane

    I grew up in a very dysfunctional, abusive family. Rules were very strict, but I was allowed to watch The Monkees each week. That was the high point of my week. Micky is my favorite. I have always like him because I think he is very cute and so funny! Plus he plays the drums...
