More than just “Monkee” business …

The Monkees

The Monkees

Looking back, 1966 was a very good year for American pop culture. “Star Trek” began boldly going where no other television series had gone before. Adam West was a hit as TV’s “Batman” and one of Billboard’s number one songs of the year* came from a group that until September 12, 1966, no one had ever heard of.

Enter “The Monkees.” Davy Jones, Peter Tork, Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz found fame, notoriety and a place in both television and music history as a group of actors cast to play a group of musicians, who went on to find real-life fame as the musicians they portrayed.

Micky Dolenz who had amassed many acting credits before landing “The Monkees” talks about the formation of the group, the success that followed and his perspective on success in the business of acting in our 1994 interview, just added to the collection at RerunIt.com.

I was huge fan and the opportunity to talk “Monkees” was beyond cool.

I’m happy to be able to share this with you.
